@@btirthankar - Wow, you've inspired me a lot. This is your second post that I'm reading (the first one with HVK). Simply amazing & I've already become a fan of you & your travelogues. First thing tomorrow, I'm gonna show this post to my friends & ask them to read. Fantastic write-up.

Great narration, BT. I like the way you caption your photos!

I too have travelled in trains for donkey's years, but find them boring compared to car journeys---it is a pain to stare out of the window on the side for long hours.

Cars are more involving, because you get a view of the front, and also because one tends to put oneself in the driver's shoes.

BTW, what is a 10200 rail journey?

I think its retro-fitted. Well, it appeared to me so.

I completely agree with you. train journeys are boring, hence this photoblog to keep boredom away and discover the odds.

The Standard Automatic Mode. Needs a steady hand, though.

Your modesty outshines mine sir. I used to take a lot of pride in calling myself as most modest . I've got serious competition I guess.

BT have been reading your logs. Its really wonderful. I thought I was the only guy crazy about trains. Infact most of my early childhood I wanted to be an engineer because I thought an engineer is the one who drives the train engines .

But seriously dont you get into trouble? I mean dont people take offence when you point cam and take pics of people, esp women??

Thanks!
Even I used to believe Engineers Manned Engines.

Coming to pictures, I take them in a manner that ought not to offend anybody. So nobody complains. If anybody does, I show them what I have shot and they are all the more happy and become facebook friends.

And particularly, its not feasible to ask unacquainted women to step aside from my frame in public places at that split second. Thousands of live eyes are darting them anyways.

But Modesty cannot be gauged in terms of perfection.

Sad piece of news below.
Maoists blow up tracks on Howrah-Mumbai route: Rediff.com India News

You managed to escape BT. Who knows, BT might have also caught photos of these in case he got held up due to such attacks!

Next Journey is waiting for that trigger of mindflash caused by the magnetic pull of the desired location.
