Whenever we hear the “chuku bhuku chuku bhuku” and the “koo” sounds of the steam rail engines, it takes us back down memory lane to our childhood days. Such is the inseparable link rail journeys have with our childhood. Every one of us has memories of our rail journeys, and our faces glow with joy whenever we remember them.
There is a musical rhythm in the running steam engine, its loud whistle, and the sounds of train cars while in motion. It is so pleasant to hear that we feel the train is trying to tell us something. Maybe, it is teaching us how to live, and how not to lose courage when life passes through a tough patch.
The गाड़ी बुला रही हे, शिति बजा रही हे title song from the 1974 cult classic movie “Dost”, made immortal by the legendaries like Kishore Kumar, Lakshmikant Pyarelal, and Dharmendra teaches exactly that. It teaches the philosophy of life to people.
Cut to the present times, the number of admirers of trains is increasing by the day. No wonder YouTube channels that carry rail videos have millions of subscribers and millions watch their rail videos daily.
