A Train Journey
Going on a journey always makes me happy. I like it very much. But the best journey for me is by train.
Flying in a plane costs a lot of money. Traveling by bus is risky and uncomfortable. However, a journey by train is nice, safe, and comfortable.
During the last autumn vacation, I had enough free time. So, I decided to take a train journey from Khulna to Rajshahi. I reached the station about half an hour before the train's departure. It was a busy time, with rickshaws, cars, and other vehicles bringing passengers to the station. Coolies were rushing around, helping them. Passengers and coolies were shouting and rushing around. Then, the train's whistle was heard, and everyone formed a line at the ticket counter. I also stood in line and bought a second-class ticket.
Finally, the right time came, and the guard blew his whistle and waved his flag. Everyone tried to get into the train first. It was hard, but I managed to get into a second-class compartment. The compartment was full.
The train started its journey. The speed gradually increased. I looked outside and enjoyed the beauty of nature. The train was passing through green paddy fields. I could see jute and plants swaying in the breeze.
Inside the compartment, there was a lively scene. Some passengers were talking about different things. Others were reading newspapers and magazines. Hawkers came to us, offering their goods for sale. The train was a mail train, so it only stopped at big stations. Passengers were getting off and others were getting on. The hawkers and coolies were busy, shouting their wares.
Finally, at 10 pm, the train reached Rajshahi Station, and I got off.
This journey made me very happy. It was a truly memorable day in my life.
