Train mess on sleeper class (8’02)

Train mess on sleeper class (8’02)

This is what happens when sleeper class passengers get told that their coach number has been changed from S3 to S4, and so everyone has to rush from one coach to the next. Except our coach was the last one before AC class coaches, and the door is locked between lower and upper classes… I recorded this after we had climbed onto upper seats to escape the chaos and wait until we could walk through the aisles again… Interestingly, at 4’30 of the recording a hijra (transgender) comes onto the train to pester men for money; you can hear him (her?) clap his/her hands which hijras always do when they beg for money..
