Indian train journeys are always special and sometimes inexplicable. While frames one after the other pass by your window as you gaze through them, some moments get frozen forever. They just don't seem to move out and remain in front of your eyes for long. The lone guard at a deserted station waving the green flag until the last bogie disappears is my all time favourite frame. It tempts me to get off at such stations. The cry of the tea seller, the long whistle from the engine and the numerous short eats that you relish en-route gives you a sense of nostalgia and takes you back to the days when you took that long train journey to your grandparent's house during summer holidays. Indian train journeys are and will always remain nostalgic for many of us.
Below are a few frames from my 53 hour train journey from Bangalore to Chandigarh. Kindly excuse the clarity as most of them were taken while the train was in motion.
