Train Fine in India
Indian railway Platform

It was a wrong turn when I picked a superfast train instead of a local. When you are in hurry, you can make such mistakes. Isn’t It?

As I was late reaching the station, I move my feets fast and stood up in a long queue(Actually too long queue). The after 10 minutes, it was lunch time, so the one making tickets at the window was not there and I wasted my time standing there.

There was a ticket vending machine, at the left which I knew when peoples were gathering there. Then I took a ticket of a train from Ambala to Chandigarh, which was just about 30 kilometers and I paid 35 rupees. Then I was sitting and relaxing on the train. But, I didn’t know that Today I have to Pay “Fine”.
