Where are you?

“I’m right next to the centre compartment.”

“Of which train…?”

“It’s the one that just came in, going to Borivali.”

“I can see three like that.”

“Oh God.”

“Nevermind, meet me at the entrance.”


A bit of context:

Churchgate Station in Mumbai is one of the busiest railway stations (and the last stop) on the Western line. Since so many trains stop here before going in the opposite direction, searching for a person can get tricky.

  3. I’m not sure that being told to meet at the entrance would be much help because that train station looks huge! I suppose having never been on a train that any train station might look huge to me? Anyway, this was a fun 6!

    1. Too many people (and places to wait), that’s the problem.

    You captured the crowded station in a few words. Nicely done.

  11. It might be a long walk but the entrance to a place (if specific) is sure to be successful for meeting up. Especially if it’s in a large train station!

  12. Yeah meeting at the entrance is probably a safer bet. I love trains and train stations but they can definitely be confusing. I hope there’s only one entrance. I was thinking if this were Grand Central in New York City that would be not helpful at all. LOL.

    1. I think they’re just going to end up changing the meeting spot again.

  13. Like Anne, I was wondering: which entrance. Stations of that size (or airports) can be very confusing. Good story.

    1. Oops, just realised that… Another confusion, I guess

  14. That could have had quite a different ending if they hadn’t realized there were multiple options for a center car!

    1. Guess they should’ve fixed a specific platform instead.
