Well, some trips call on for extreme adventures. This was the one, a few days back and my first one via a train’s A.C. chair car. I never used to go for a chair car coach because, they seemed uncomfortable to me for long distances. Sure they are. But when it is for a two hour journey, with your favorite cousin, you enjoy a lot.
I was traveling to Lucknow from Gonda and we knew that we would meet Ghagra, a tributary of the Ganges. We set our camera on recording and kept the phone on the window (we were lucky, it didn’t stir😁), and enjoyed the view all by ourselves. There is something enigmatic about the rivers which draws all my attention towards it. When I am in Lucknow, and happen to pass by the Gomti, I really leave everything aside and stare at it like a moron! Somehow, that placates me… Similarly, while in Delhi, I stare like that for a while at Yamuna.
The following video records Ghagra in all its grandeur. Hope you guys enjoy that!
I have always wondered what this train carries inside, besides coal!
