A Journey by Train
A journey by train is always fascinating and interesting to almost everyone. It charms mind and makes us happy. During the last winter vacation, I got an opportunity to make a journey by train with my family members from Dhaka to Rajshahi.
My uncle lives in Rajshahi and he invited us to attend the marriage ceremony of his elder daughter at his house. After discussion, my father decided to go there by train. It was 11 December, 2015. We got up early in the morning, took preparation and reached Kamlapur Railway Station by bus. My father bought four tickets for the Ekota Express.
We got into the train and took our seats. Within a few minutes, the train started to move slowly at about 7.30 am and gradually attained speed. I noticed the passengers reading newspapers and heard them talking on different topics. As I had my seat by the window, I could see outside easily. I was enjoying the beautiful sights and sounds of nature. I saw jute, sugarcane (B¶z), and paddy fields, beautiful houses and trees. All these seemed to be running back. The village women were seen carrying pitchers of water, farmers were seen working in the fields and young boys, girls and children were shivering in cold. I was enjoying everything to my heart’s content
As it was an intercity train, it did not stop in many stations and was not very crowded. There were a few hawkers in the train selling boiled eggs, chanachur and betel leaf. In this way we passed ten hours and at last reached Rajshahi Railway Station at 5 pm. My uncle was waiting for us. After coming out of the station, we were greeted cordially.
Thus the train journey came to an end. The journey was a short one but it gave me much pleasure and experience. It was the most pleasant journey in my life, and its memory will remain ever fresh in my mind.
