As soon as the train reached the platform, the passengers threw luggage in the door and there was a lot of pulling and pushing. Children, women and old people had to face great difficulty. There was a lot of noise. We took our seats in the compartment. Luckily, I got a good seat near window. The compartment was packed. The guard blew the whistle and the train started. The people in the train waved their hands to say good-by to their relatives and friends on the platform that came to see them off. Many people were sitting on the floor and in the passage. Some people were standing near the gates.
