Narrative Essay On A Journey By Train
As such, they are very fond of making journeys frequently. I have frequently travelled by bus with my parents to different places. My father bought tickets for mother and me as also for himself. Occasionally in a railway train one meets well-informed and agreeable persons, whose conversation does much to relieve the tedium of a long journey.Even more interesting than the study of the different characters of one’s fellow-passengers, is the variety of the scenery through which the railway passes.As the poorer people of India have little regard for time, long before the moment of departure many of them have come to the station, and may be seen waiting patiently in clusters round their pots and pans and other luggage.Besides the actual passengers, the station is also crowded with those who have come to see their friends off. The hawkers were crying at the top of their voices. My father pushed me and I was able to occupy a seat. Very soon we were passing through the green fields. It was very nice to see men, women and children working in the fields. At noon we reached the areas of Chittagong district. After seven hours, the train reached the Chittagong railway station at 4 p.m. My coolie managed to enter through a window and put our luggage on a seat. It was very interesting to observe the rural life of India. However, last Sunday I had a memorable journey by rail. Immediately, we moved to platform No.1 where the train was to arrive shortly. We had not been there on the platform for more than a minute or two when the train arrived.
