A Journey By Train I Have Made
Journey is always a pleasure to me . Whenever I go on a journey , my heart leaps up with joy. But my greatest pleasure is in a journey by train .
A journey by plane is costly . A journey by bus is risky and uncomfortable . But a journey by train is pleasant , safe and comfortable.
In the last autumn vacation I got sufficient time . So I made up my mind to make a journey by train from Khulna to Rajshahi . I reached the station about half an hour before the departure of the train . It was then a very busy time . Rickshaw , motor cars and other vehicles were coming to the station with passengers . Coolies were running behind them . There were the shouts and rush of the passengers and the coolies . After sometime hearing a whistle , the passengers stood in a queue before the ticket counter . I also stood in the line and bought a second class ticket .
The right time came and the guard whistled and waved his flag . Everybody tried to get into the train first . After much difficulty I got into a second class compartment . The compartment was full to its capacity .
The train left the station . Gradually the speed of the train increased . I looked outside and found the beauty of nature . The train was running through green paddy fields . There were jute and sugarcane plants here and there . They were tossing their heads in the breeze . The compartment presented a good scene . Some of the passengers were talking on various matters . Some were reading newspapers and magazines . Hawkers came up to us with their goods for sale .
The train was a mail train . It touched only at the big stations . Passengers were getting down and again some were getting into the train . The hawkers and the coolies were shouting . They were busy too . At last the train reached at the Rajshahi Station at 10 p . m . I got down . The journey in my heart I bore . It gave me much pleasure . Indeed it was one of the most memorable days in my life .
