A Journey By Train

In the last autumn vacation I got sufficient time. So I made up my mind to make a journey by train from Dhaka to Khulna. I reached the station about half an hour before the train’s leaving. It was than a very busy time. Rickshaws, motor cars and other vehicles were coming to the station with passengers. After sometime hearing the whistle, the passengers stood before the ticket counter. I also stood in the line and bought a second class ticket.
 At the right time the right train came and the guard whistled and waved his flag. Everybody tired to get into the train fast. After much difficulty I got into a second class compartment. The compartment was full to its capacity. The train left the station. I looked outside and found the beauty of nature. The train was running through green paddy fields. There were jute and sugarcane plants here and there. They were tossing their heads in the breeze. The compartment presented a good scene. Some of the passengers were talking on various matters. Some were reading newspapers and magazines. Hawkers came to us with their goods for sale. The train reached at the Khulna Station at 11 p.m. I got down. The journey gave me much pleasure. Indeed it was one of the most memorable days in my life.
