Pleasant surprise - Sighting of the train


Pleasant surprise - Sighting of the train
While driving from Bagdogra to Phuentsholing which is the point of entry into Bhutan from north Bengal side, noticed a single line railway track running parallel to the road for quite some time. Sure enough, a train appeared. Realised that it was going quite slow. The fields and the train traversing the plains has always been a visual I do not want to miss.

In fact, I consider the cinematographic sequence in "Pather Panchali" by Satyajit Ray as one of the best constructed sequences of all times in which Apu and Durga run through the fields to get a sighting of the train when they hear the train whistle from a distance.
