This incident narrated here actually happened. It took place about thirty years ago.
It was the month of June 1985. Every year during Summer vacation we used to go South India by train. Air travel had not become popular. We were travelling to Kerala. Those days there was no direct train from Delhi to Kerala.We had to change the train at Madras. Upto Nagpur the journey was comfortable. At Nagpur station a railway offiicial ehtered the coMpartment and told us to get down. He said that that partiular comparment was to be attached to a West bound train. We refused to get down and told him that when we got into the train, the words 'Madras'was clearly written on it. It was a four berth compartment and we were four members traveiing in it. We were 1st class travellers and had not done any thing illegal. Soon after the bogie was detatched ; it was parked in the yard. We again gave a representation to the railway officers. We spent the day in the railway yard. Suddenly the bogie started moving. We were quite tense.The bogie was attached to a Madras bound train. We heaved a sigh of relief. On the opposite platform we saw ''The Westbound train'' leaving the station.
