Indian Railways


A journey in the Indian Railways is the most unique travelling experience you can ever have in the world. It’s the best way to connect with the people of India and get indulged into thousands of exciting stories, family gossips, office politics and of course the favourite: national politics. A train journey in India can be overwhelming. Thousands of travellers all struggling to hop on one single rail is not a very beautiful sight to witness. So, to have a good rail experience one must know how to enjoy little things in life and don’t get bothered by dirty curtains, stinky bathrooms, smelly bedsheets, no internet and loud snores!

Wait, this doesn’t seem good. Trains are shit!

That’s exactly what would be running in your minds right now. An Indian Train journey is all about bittersweet memories, you don’t get the best facilities but you still get the best experience!

But I still don’t understand how that works?

Let me show you the brighter side of travelling in Indian Railways. People of India love to talk and there is no internet network, this gives them the perfect excuse to talk their hearts out. When you are on the train before you even realize you would be exchanging stories or discussing politics with the fellow passengers. In case, you are an introvert you still have a lot of interesting gossip and stories to listen to, moreover, you have the leverage to join and leave the conversation whenever you feel like. Indian railways define the true meaning of diverse India, the stories and experiences that people share are all completely different from one another. Offering a unique experience each time you travel.

I have travelled in Indian Railways so many times that I have lost count. My maternal grandparents live in Varanasi and I remember we used to travel via Kashi Vishwanath Express most of the times. This train has a reputation of its own, obviously, it’s not clean like all other trains of India but what makes it unique is that IT’S ALWAYS LATE.

FYI I am 19 now and I have been travelling via this train since I was 3 and for all those years it has maintained its record of never arriving on time.

So, coming back to the main agenda of introducing you to some wonderful experienced at Indian Rail, here is the link to my first story: ‘Symphony of Snores’
