Recap- Farhaan and Shaksham after getting rid of NCC officer started laughing in happiness due to their smooth escape this time. In the meantime, Anuj came and poked in and gave the tickets to them and informed due to Shivratri festival they need to arrange for boarding the train before time as there will be a lot of rush. At 9.30 pm all the cadets came in the place and Farhaan divided the team into five groups for easy onboarding. Let’s see what happened next…
Shaksham walked towards the Farhaan and said to him, “ there would be only four general compartment in this train, it will be first two and possibly last two compartment of the train, so we people should place the luggage according to first and last compartment otherwise we will waste time unnecessarily while running towards the general compartment.
Farhaan nodded and said, “You are right” and they did the same.
It was around 9 : 50 and a Jingle sound came, it was an announcement about train, “May I have your attention please, “Jammu Tavi Shiyaldah Exp” from Jammu to Shiyaldah via Haridwar, Luxor, Najibabad, Moradabad to Shiyaldah is scheduled by 10: 10 PM is delayed by 2 hours 10 Minute on platform no. 1, the inconvenience caused is deeply regretted.” All the cadets shook their heads and someone said in frustration’ “why the trains get often delayed in India from its scheduled time.” All the cadets were blaming to Indian railway only and slowly they get set on the benches and they soon began to take a short nap.

Shaksham brought out his diary and started thinking and writing and Anuj was observing him, he could not remain silent and he asked to Shaksham after a couple of minutes, “what are you doing, are you a poet?” Shaksham smiled and reply, “Yeah, I just try a little bit but I am not a poet at all, trying to express myself for the nation only”, “So you write only patriotic poems?” Anuj asked. “Yeah, poems come out from the sentiments and passion, and I am a patriotic kind of person, so I express the same.” This conversation goes long in between Shaksham and Anuj and they heard another announcement about the train, it was right 12:00 AM and the train was about to reach, the cadets were sleepy had come in active mode. Nagina station was immersed in the silence of the night, seemed to wake up again because of the movement of people, all the people were eagerly awaiting and were looking in the direction of arrival of the train.
The roar of the train now was audible and the headlight of train’s engine was now shining in far. Coming up with the rapid pace train was now slowing down and all the cadets were ready to board the train with their luggage. Maybe anyone never saw such a crowded train inferno in his life. Kanvar bringing pilgrims from Haridwar were hanging off with the doors; there was no place at all in general class coaches and Shaksham shouted with frustration, “oh! shit” and Farhaan came running towards Shaksham and asked, “what to do now?” , “Anyhow we have to board the train to board the sleeper coach but try to not bother any passenger.
