I am little uncomfortable today. I wish could be furious but that does not serve any purpose. Anybody would be if one has to spend 40 minutes on a railway crossing.
Yes! 40 minutes.
This happened today morning.
That delayed my journey by probably more than the period I than I waited at the crossing because it took another 30 minutes to clear the backlog and before traffic was smooth again.
I have always despised railway crossings. I do not think anyone likes them except children who love to see a moving train.
Railway crossings stop the movement.
Everyday thoousands of people stop to let a train pass. I cannot even count how many manhours are wasted at these crossings.
There are people who face this menace everyday.
Railway overbridge is a beautiful solution. Everyone including rail can move.
But we are still left with so many crossings that it stops making sense when we say that we are developing.
