I have traveled through thousands of kilo meters to reach my destination and my journey starts from Kolkata and my final destination was Jammu and Kashmir known as the heaven on earth. I am the train service of Jammu and Kashmir. I was selected from my family accompanied by two of my cousins. When brought I was just few months old. I am red in color and my cousins are blue. I was inaugurated by respected railway minister  Lalu Prasad Yadav. Although it was a sort of respect to get inaugurated by railway minister besides this I was too excited to get acclimatize here. The journey of my life was very happening and I was the first to provide my services to heaven on earth. My parents too were eager to serve the people of this state. But luckily I got the chance.                

I have completed nearly three years and I go through many ups and downs in my life. I saw both the phases of my life. When brought to the state I was the superstar of news channels, everywhere was only one news flashing. There was live telecast too and it was as if a dream was coming true. Every one was very excited and wants a ride with me. My first journey was from Nougam to Baramulla carrying school children, honorable railway minister, some senior citizens and local residents too. Everyone was excited and were whispering to each other in the joy of traveling with me for the first time. Although first day of journey was a little bit hectic but I too enjoyed it a lot seeing people of Kashmir happy for which I was taught to provide them with my best services. As the days passed I was getting more and more attached to the people here. Every day I carry the passengers to their destination. Every new day starts with new faces but some of them were familiar like that of some students and some employees. I was always a companion to them,whenever the students were tensed about their papers I too was tensed with them and whenever employees were tired I too was tired with them. Whenever there was crowd I carry them on my back which sometimes results in a big loss. As far as services were concerned I provide them the best as I faced the curfewed days and nights and sometimes I manage to travel with my passengers safely. It seemed as if I was congenial for the people living here. But as we all know every coin has two faces, I go through the other face too in which I suffered a lot. As the days passed the crowd was increasing day by day and with the increasing crowd I start getting unhygienic. The increased crowd starts littering inside my boogies making me unhygienic. Passengers started writing on my wall  and my passenger seats are destroyed badly. Alas! I am in pain….. 

It is winter season and I too felt the cold. The chill is coming through the broken window pans. Nowadays I am not feeling well and my passengers have to suffer a lot as I fail to provide them with best of my services. Now it's time for a return I just want some support from the passengers and the authority too. I just request the passengers not to litter my boogies so to maintain a hygienic condition for themselves and fore too. And I request the esteemed authorities to take some action for my hygiene by assigning sweeper so as to maintain a good hygiene inside the boogies before its too late…..

Did I deserve this kind of behavior.
