In India, extreme weather conditions are one of the major reasons of delays in the public transport system. Specifically during winters, when more than half of the country is immersed in chilly waves and fog, it gets really tough to travel from one place to another. Indian railway is the prime mode of transport for millions of Indians each day. Winters, which also is the holiday season, sees lakhs and thousands of people taking trains to reach their destinations - but due to weather conditions, end up waiting for hours at the stations or in the train itself! Getting late becomes synonyms with railway network and one sees different colors of frustration, anxiety, laidback attitude and humour while traveling. Here are some of the common situations, we're sure you must have experienced yourself:
1. Stuck in the middle of nowhere, half of the passengers are out of the train to mess up with the authority!"Arre Itni Der Kyun Lag Rahi Hai???"
2. Mind you! At least 90% of which are only out to see what the other 10% are going to speak!"Hamare Netaji Bolenge"
3. For some the train becomes a park for morning walks!!

5. You'd surely find professors, honeymoon couples and students busy cancelling and rescheduling their bookings and appointments!
6. Not to forget the consolers -"Mummy, wo train late ho gayi hai na"
and "Arre tum khane ki tyaari karo, hum to seedhe dinner ke time he pahunchenge"!
7. When other trains pass by you, all you feel is deep frustration for the railways!
"Aaj Ke Baad Kabhi Ye Train Nhn Lenge!"
8. Foodies around you will only be bothered about one thing;"Bhaiya Khana Kya Milega Lunch Me??? Ice Cream Hi Khilado"
9. Late trains are a platform for all the debaters to have a discussion on timings of the train, assumptions on when will it reach and share their past experiences!
"Meri Train To Ek Baar 4 din late thi"
10. And do not forget the sarcastic aunties"Aur Bol Rahe Hain Ki Bullet Train Layenge..Kuch Nahi Hoga!!"
