Chugging silently on tracks recalling their good times, a few trains in India narrate the tales of the undivided India. They bespeak the pain of partition and narrate its history
Trains stand as silent spectators, playing the role of a mute witness to the times of pre-independence. This was a time when people lived in unison sans borders; unity, harmony and humanity was at its epitome and religion was not a breaking force but a connecting medium.
However, later on, these trains saw the other side too…they saw the crumbling of a nation like a pack of cards during the partition of India. When India was divided, these trains too felt the pangs of their separation from Peshawar, which once used to be their terminal point.
In all these years, despite major changes in geography, history and social equations post-partition, they continued rendering their duties. However, the only difference they made was to change their terminal point.
