They say that the most progressive cities are not those where many people have cars, but those where car owners choose to use public transport. True, a good and functional public transport is a true sign of progress. Many cities around the world have options for public transport, but the question is how efficient they are to fulfill their purpose.
Many people from different highly progressive cities choose to buy their own vehicles and drive them instead of just using public transport systems. Despite having bus services, trains, subways and cabotage, these people still choose to spend more on gasoline instead of traveling daily.
We can not really blame these people because, in most cases, public displacements can be really bad. The displacements mean that traffic does not move, or make long lines just to get to a bus or a train. This can also consume much of your effort and energy, not to mention that it will also take you a long time.
Most of the time, public transportation leads to many unforeseen circumstances that make you late for work. Some people even complain that they get tired more on public transport than at work. In short, the transfer does not become an option unless they have no other transportation option.
But as much as we complain about public transportation, do we ever think that other people have it worse? This same question is answered by a viral video of a train station in India that has gathered many reactions from various netizens around the world.
The video is a film of a train station that is full of women. When looking at the video initially, it could be said that it is full of people, there would not even be room for a needle to fall to the ground.
The women seem to be waiting anxiously for the train to come and it seems that they are preparing for something big. As soon as the train arrives, the commotion also begins among the women. Everyone seemed shaken as if they were chasing the train.
The train stops and the whole situation became even more messy. It was as if there was a large wave of people trying to go behind the train doors. These trains are used by more than 8 million people who travel publicly. Each train has a capacity of 1,700 people, but around 4,500 people travel on each train every day.
