Filed under: Travel — Porcupyn @ 7:32 pm

… but for the arguments with unreserved folks who get in and don’t let legit passengers, whether they are old and feeble or have infants with them, get to their seats/berths in time.

But that is small price to pay to listen to the music of the wheels on the track, without being sequestered within the comforts of an Air-conditioned coach. This pleasure is pure third world fun – developed countries cannot claim to have access to this pleasure except for rides on toy trains that kids typically ride on.

Indian Railways rule (or should I say “rules”?), albeit with an avoidable mishap or two here and there. :-(..
