Train journeys of India

The uniqueness of a train journey is that you meet a new person every time you stand at the door
Food in India
One of the best things of a train journey is Tea and home made food. It adds meaning to the long conversation!

You can always learn something new on a long distance train. I learned how to annoy a chess master and how to speak Sindhi!

 

You can meet the Bharat in India when you opt for a train journey

We reached Mathura at 2.30 am and decided to catch the first bus to Agra which left at 6. It was a race against time, only to capture a sunrise like this one with Taj Mahal.

The Taj is under maintenance in order to restore its shining white attire which faded due to pollution caused by rubber industries around it.
Taj Mahal
The Yamuna river was surprisingly clean and fresh probably because of the ban on Industries around the Taj which is in fact a great step by the Indian Government
The Taj Mahal
I think a Urdu poetry on this blue canvas will look surreal! Anyone up for this?

The best thing about this dhol at Dwarkadheesh Temple was anyone could beat it and make people dance on their tune.
