Life at Platforms

The first railway on Indian sub-continent ran over a stretch of 21 miles from Bombay to Thane on 16 April 1853.In nearly 150 years it has grown over 114,500 kilometres which carry over 30 million passengers daily.Indian Railways (reporting mark IR) is an iconic Indian organisation, owned and operated by the Government of India through the Ministry of Railways. It has the world’s fourth largest railway network after those of the United States, Russia and China.

I have been documenting the platforms for a long time now. Till now it has not been specifically for photography, but now having a good amount of images on the subject I think I will research it more and make it more detailed.

You can see the complete set on flickr with all the photographs till now here

125. Between Me and Nature

With growing Urbanization we are going away and away from nature. The sweet songs of birds are replaced by Traffic noise. I am fortunate enough to live in a green, peaceful campus. It is a perfect combination of facilities a city can give and a natural environment.

114. Green Light

I so much wanted to get up there and take a self-portrait. It was not so easy as I don’t have a remote trigger and I couldn’t make it there in the first few tries. This is the newly constructed railway track on which no train runs as of now. Flickr link

Taken at Rewari Railway Station while waiting for the train. Composed of two very basic thing in life of Indian people- Tea and train.
