Push, I Say !

The people in this picture are not taking part in a
flick. No, it's just the way things are
in an overpopulated country
like India. When it gets
beyond standing-room-only inside, people
risk their lives riding the trains on the outside
as they go
about their daily commute. I often traveled with my legs

dangling outside the train when faced with similar space
It was fun and dangerous and very windy, but
at least I could smoke
without offending other passengers.

Yesterday hundreds of rail passengers in Bihar got more
than they
had bargained for when the driver of their train
asked them to get
out and push.
