Railway accidents are very common these days. However, it can be guessed that when thousands of trains run over the rail track every day and some mishap sometimes cannot be ruled out. Accidents may occur due to some mechanical failure, but often they occur due to human error.Day before yesterday, a horrible accident took place between two trains near the local railway station. It so happened that the Rajdhani Express was coming at full speed. It was a through train and was thus not to stop at this station. The station master gave the wrong signal and the Rajdhani Express rammed into the passenger train which was approaching the station from the opposite direction.The two mighty engines struck each other like two fearful demons. Both of them were smashed and the drivers and cleaners of both of them were killed on the spot. Two bogies of the Rajdhani Express were destroyed, while four front bogies of the passenger train also met the same fate.It was early in the morning. As we heard the cries of passengers, we rushed to the spot. It was a horrible sight. About two hundred passengers had been killed. Thousands of the passengers were injured.Volunteers from the adjoining areas had come to look after the injured passengers. The railway safety system should be brushed up to make travel risk-free.
