Uniting a city

From The Hindu a snap from Patna

This is not an unusual scene. The sub-urban trains in Mumbai are probably scarier to look at. Also, this piece on trains in Mumbai is a great read.

“When we board the train, we make an unspoken pact with our fellow citizens: we know we’re in for a horrid time for a little while, but in the end, we’ll all get to our destination. Those daily negotiations give us a sense of empathy and solidarity with our fellow citizens that’s unique to Mumbai”
