I got the ticket and sat near a window. The train was packed and at about 9.30 a.m. the train whistled. At first, the train moved on slowly. But after a few minutes, it began moving at a great speed. It was an express train.
Description of the journey: I was traveling at second class. I looked outside the train through the window. The green meadows, fields trees etc.. were sparkling with sun-light. Everything was dazzling when I saw these going backwards our train. Our train was passing the bridges and paddy fields. The train was stopping on stations every now and then. The passengers were getting on and down from it. At Noapara station, a deformed passenger got on the train and sat beside me. I was upset observing his pathetic condition. I was absorbed in deep thought realizing the contrast between the beauty of nature and the deformation of the mortal, My sight-seeing enjoyment got a jerk for a while. However, I talked with this man and understood he was very amusing. I again looked at the nature. Everything in nature looked like photos of a film. Everything was beautiful and joyful. The train was passing with whistles stations after stations. I fell into a deep pit of enjoyment. At this state I could not exactly remember when I felt asleep. When our train reached Jessore station, my sister alarmed me and I was startled.
