A RAILWAY STATION
Kanyakumari Express is arriving within five minutes on the platform no. 6 instead of platform no. 4 blurred the loud speakers on all the platforms. The announcer was very claim in her voice, but not the passengers. It was a hurried announcement that made the people run helter skelter pushing over all they came across. Passengers who had no porters could be seen moving uncomfortably. Those in the tea stalls on platform no. 4 heaved a sigh of relief. But the activities on the main platform remained the same. Ticket checkers and other staff members in white could be seen frisking all the time. Canteens filled the atmosphere with the aroma of sambar, idli and dosha. People came in advance were seen busy either with talks or selecting books and magazines at the book stall. But as soon as the train arrived all the activities got subdued.
