There's A Cow In My Train!

Ok, there isn't a cow in my train. But there is one right outside and just about to board. And besides, there's pretty much everything else in my train, why not a cow?

The famous Indian Railways never stop to amaze with their practicality, immense popularity and occasional entertainment they provide. The trains are punctual most of the times, go everywhere and sometimes more than everywhere, they're not romantic but can be (despite the classic iconography of a lady in a bright yellow sari between wagons) and you can spend a wonderful if somewhat tiring few days in one of these. And eventually you'll just have to, so you might as well enjoy it and discuss international economics or the religion of your parents with your news friends.

As with most things in India, anything goes!
