The last train journey during the last Durga Puja vacation remains fresh in my mind. The journey remained important for the reason that it was a rare opportunity for me in student life. The half yearly examination was to be held after the holidays as per the notification. The news brought cheer and I eagerly waited for the opportunity to have a trek to Delhi, the capital of India.The prospect of visiting Delhi with my parents filled my heart with joy. I went with other family members from Cuttack railway station. The train we travelled by was Nilanchal express. The train was delayed at Cuttack Railway station. There was great noise on the station. As the train arrived the passengers were rushing towards the compartments.Some passengers were sitting on the floor and some were moving about the station in a cheerful mood. My compartment was full. Some passengers were occupying the seats in an unfair way. The passengers that came late were being penalised. There were a number of coolies in the platform too. My father had booked four tickets standing on the queue.When the first bell rang, before the starting of the train the passengers seemed to remain alert and there was no scrambling for seats. Everybody was anxious to get into the train. But the passengers inside the compartments banged the doors so that others might not enter into their compartments forcibly from outside. The situation of passengers making themselves comfortable. The train left the station as the guard blew the whistle and waved the flag.We heard a sigh of relief after occupying our seats. It was my first journey by train. After leaving the station the rain gained its speed. The train halted at every station. It ran between green fields, valleys, hills and forests. The distant trees seemed to move in the opposite direction. The sights that attracted us most on the way were that of the green sugarcane and wheat fields of U.P. State. Other interesting scenes were that of beautiful birds of variegated colours. The red glow of the sun, the sight of the setting sun, and the hues of the clouds in the sky provided the charming scene to us.Apart from the sightseeing, other things that attracted our sight were the selling of fruits by fruit vendors, the checking of tickets by the ticket examiner inside the train. I got the opportunity of going through different comic books and magazines to relieve the boredom of the journey of long forty-eight hours. By the time we reached Delhi it was 11 P.M. The journey was interesting. The loud talks of the people inside the train still came as reminiscence when I remain in a solitary place even today.

Journey generally means traveling a long distance.I had travelled last year with my parents to Bombay by Gitanjali Express in order to attend the marriage ceremony of my cousin who stays there.
 It was the month of December. The weather was pleas­ant. We started for Bombay from Howrah railway station. We spent the night in the train. Outside it was dark, and nothing could be seen. My parents went to sleep in their berths, but I did not feel sleepy. For me, it was a thrilling journey.
 I was being carried away far from Calcutta every minute and every hour. In the calmness of the night, the noise of the wheels created by the motion of the train seemed rhythmical. The dim light overhead added to a mystic atmosphere. It was perhaps only me, the lone traveller, who kept himself awake so late at night in the compartment. I do not remember when I fell asleep.
 In the morning, I got up at about 7 A.M. I looked out­side. The stations were passing fast before my eyes. The land, the towns, the mills, the villages-all of them composed a unique picturesque and pleased my eye. It was a new experience for me to see another state of India. The stations like Nagpur, Wardha, or Bhillai were so long known to me only through the pages of geography.
We reached Bombay in the afternoon. Our cousin came to receive us at the Victoria Station with his Fiat car. His residential flat was very nice. It was near the Marine Drive. This was first time that I visited Bombay.
The wedding ceremony was simple. A limited number of guests were invited. According to the Hindu rites, the ceremony was performed, although in presence of the Marriage Registrar and three independent witnesses the newly wedded couple signed the register. There was a grand feast. The food came from a renowned hotel. We really enjoyed the marriage party.
Next day, we were taken by a bus of the Govt. Tourism Department, and shown all the important sights in the city. After three days, we returned to Calcutta.
The memory of my Bombay visit remains as a living picture with me even today.
