A Train Journey (R1)

Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal

I had to go to Kolkata
with my wife
For an important job
I preferred train journey
As Rajdhani tickets were not available
I booked the tickets
in Poorva express
On 17 Jan 2015.
The day came
We reached New Delhi station
in time
But the train re-scheduled
As up train not come
due to foggy climate
First re-scheduled at 2310 hours,
then 0430 hrs,1000 hrs
and finally at 1200 hrs.
The train departed 16 hours late
from the originating station
And reached Howrah
with another 16 hours late.
Purva Express is an important train
Between New Delhi and Howrah
It should have priority
But no one is bothered
One hand, IR has no extra engine,
extra rake, extra staff
in originating station
And other side
it's introducing bullet train.

First of all...
Railway must run routine trains
in time
And provide Safety & security
to the passengers during journey.
