2. The railway station has undergone a great transformation as anything does over time. Here we have a crater hole which I am not going to visit today.

3. On my way, i observed a lot of rampikes; leafless trees.

4. The view from the bridge is breathtaking. I once had a discussion with the engineer who was working on it in its initial phase:

Bridge has been built!

5. Time table picture. I captured the image at the instant when a gentleman asked me about the train for Indore. The image erased itself. Or was it IT cell?
