Waiting for the train

Inside Chennai Central. As the passengers wait for their rake to come in, the 'licenced porter' uses the break to take a quick nap in the aisle. Everyone will burst into action the moment a coach is sighted in the distance!

It isn't unusual for them to sleep on the aisle? They'd be less of a bother if they just used one of the seats.

@ Hilda: Not really. The floor allows them the luxury of stretching out. And here they'd surely be woken up when the crowd moves to the train!

@ Brattcat: Thanks!

@ Moochhi: :)
