Arrow DRIVOBLOG® | Trainspection [HYD-MUM] (Special Railway Edition)

Continued from: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...tion-live.html (DRIVOBLOG® | [CCU-HYD] Special Railway Edition | LIVE!)

--
Now A Train Journey on this [HYD-MUM] route can be really boring and all the more with hardly anybody charming enough to speak to.

And photographs? Clicking the same old boxes & lines?

From my numerous road trips on NH9, I could easily identify barrenness of the vegetation visible passing Gulbarga and felt no DRIVOBLOG could be made.

But then I decided otherwise. Let us understand a few things in this trip rather than the conventional and savor the visible least as well. But why am I typing all this.

Glance on!

Thank You. The thoughts emanate LIVE! as I click those pictures. Sometimes pictures follow the thoughts too

Exactly. The human mind grasps visuals faster than the texts. Its less stressful for the audience and the programming becomes short and one shot (uninterrupted).

But am sure some of my captions are stressful enough as they have hidden clues to the pictures.

Nice pictures and captions.

The picture of the train attendant goes to show that affluence is increasing and the fruits of development is slowly reaching far and wide

Hi basu,
Nice trainblog again. You make ordinary and mundane looking things special with your lens.
Nice details of Mr. Talpade. But may be we are still very far off calling India-truly shining.
Nice pictures and good observstion.

Basu, you should be made the marketing head for promoting Indian railways! It's been 5 years since I got into one and now I travel by train!

Awesome 'Trainoblog'

Yeah. I dont know about others but India is truly sparkling from the coins inside Mr. Talpade's wallet.

I just wish Railways gets a new born glamor factor.
