A Journey by Train
A few days ago I made a journey by train from Dhaka to Chittagong. My destination was the residence of my uncle who lives in Chittagong now. On the occasion of my cousin's wedding ceremony I was invited with my parents to attend the wedding party. In this way an opportunity of train journey came to me.
On the fixed day we reached the Kamalapur Railway Station. Purchasing three tickets for Chittagong we got into the train. The bell rang and the guard blew his whistle and waved his green flag. With little jerk the train started to move on. At first the train moved on slowly. The speed of the train gradually increased. The station remained behind left. I looked outside through the window. We enjoyed beautiful green fields, orchard and trees on the both sides. We saw the farmers working in the field and cattle grazing here and there. In the meantime we entered Chittagong District and started enjoying the hills there. On the right the vast sheet of the water of the Bay-of-Bengal raised a sudden tremor in all the body of mine. I became thrilled. Gradually the sun was going to the western sky.
It was evening when we reached the Chittagong Station. My uncle was eagerly waiting for us at the station. We safely reached my uncle's residence.
It is the only train journey in my life till today. So the journey has overwhelmed me much. I have learnt many things from it. Because this journey was a new experience to me. I can not help recalling this journey often as the sweet memory of this journey has filled me with eternal joy.
