It happens only in India!

16 May

A train running between Lohapur and Rampurhat in Bengal did not run for a week because the cabin master at one of the railway crossings went on leave and there was no-one to man the level crossing. His modus operandi for getting leave was simple. He stuck a notice on the cabin and left. The train did not run till he came back.

The railway platform at Rampurhat is too small so express trains stop twice.Once the first half at the platform and then the second half!

PS: Am done with Bardwan.

Villages visited: Memari, Shaktigarh, Rasulpur, Guskara

Next stop Kolaghat and Midnapur to meet Shakti Ammas!
