Apr 04 2017 (12:27)   'अबाॅर्शन एक्सप्रेस' के नाम से फेमस है ये ट्रेन, ऐसे चल रहा है ये कारोबार

नागपुर/भुसावल. सूरत देश की खास कारोबारी शहरों में शामिल है। शादी की साड़ियां खरीदी करने के लिए सूरत जाने की बात महाराष्ट्र में बड़े गर्व से बताई जाती है, लेकिन शादी के बाद इसी सूरत शहर में जाने की बात छिपाई जाती है। भुसावल से सूरत के लिए एक पैसेंजर ट्रेन जाती है। इस पैसेंजर ट्रेन का नाम ‘सूरत-भुसावल- भरूच’ है, लेकिन आसपास के गांवों में इस ट्रेन को 'अबाॅर्शन एक्सप्रेस' के नाम से पहचाना जाता है। ऐसे गुपचुप चल रहा है ये कारोबार...
- महाराष्ट्र में महिलाएं सूरत को भ्रूण लिंग जांच कराने वाले शहर के तौर पर भी जानती है।

ज्यादातर प्रेग्नेंट महिलाएं 'अबाॅर्शन एक्सप्रेस' के नाम से फेमस ‘सूरत-भुसावल- भरूच’ ट्रेन से सूरत के एक उपनगर उधना जाती हैं।
- सुबह 4 से 6 बजे के बीच सोनोग्राफी होती है। अगर गर्भ में लड़की होती है तो भ्रूण का अबाॅर्शन किया जाता है और इसका किसी को पता भी नहीं चलता है।
- जेंडर की जांच के लिए 20 हजार, अगर भ्रूण को गिराना है तो 25 हजार अलग से देने पड़ते हैं। यानी एक बार जांच और अबार्शन का खर्चा करीब 50 हजार रुपए आता है।
- काम होने के बाद सुबह 7.30 बजे वाली पैसेंजर से सब अपने गांव लौट आते हैं। महाराष्ट्र -गुजरात की बॉर्डर पर कन्या भ्रूण हत्या का काला धंधा चलता है।
शाम 7.00 : भुसावल
महाराष्ट्र के खास जंक्शन में से एक भुसावल स्टेशन पर लोगों की भीड़ जमी हुई थी। कोई रिश्तेदारों से मिलने जा रहा था, तो कोई साडियां खरीदने जा रहा था। भुसावल से सूरत की तरफ जाने वाली पैसेंजर ट्रेन शाम 07 बजे प्लेटफॉर्म से निकलती है।
रात 11.15 : जिला नंदुरबार
भादली, जलगांव, धरणगांव, अमलनेर, बेटावद, दोंडाईचा, रनाला, नंदुरबार समेत हर स्टेशन से ट्रेन में पैसेंजर्स बैठ रहे थे। जहां चार लोग बैठ सकते है, वहीं छह से सात लोग बैठ रहे थे। ऊपर लगेज के स्टैंड पर भी तीन-चार लोग बैठे हुए थे। कोई किसी से बात नहीं कर रहा था।
सुबह 3.45 : उधना
तकरीबन 9 घंटे अकड़कर बैठकर सफर करने के बाद मुसाफिरों ने अंगड़ाई लेते हुए ही लगेज समेटा। 331 किलोमीटर के सफर के बाद ट्रेन सूरत के उपनगर उधना स्टेशन पर रुकी। स्टेशन के बाहर ऑटोरिक्शा ड्राइवर्स आवाज लगा रहे थे। पांडेसरा हौसिंग-10 रुपए सीट।
सुबह 07:30: उधना
भुसावल को जाने के लिए उधना स्टेशन पर लगे उसी पैसेंजर से घर लौटने की हड़बड़ी शुरू हो जाती है। इन दो घंटों का हिसाब न गुजरात सरकार के पास दर्ज होता है न महाराष्ट्र सरकार के पास। किसी को कोई खबर नहीं होती, लेकिन एक बच्ची को जन्म से पहले ही मार दिया जाता है।

I have said myself that this could be done but it's unsafe for mother especially when they are conducting this in a illegitimate manner then it's not like that they would be aborting their fetus in a well equipped hospital. unconsciousness depend on the type of anesthesia used so can't comment on that but that was general statement that anyone who has gone through abortion just the previous day wouldn't be travelling on train the next day.

I have booked at rameshsharam exp 16734 at sleeper coach from tirupati to Madurai at june.An old woman and a child will be my journey partner. But berth no is 1,3 and 4. It is just at starting of coach. If train will run with full load of passengers (with extra passenger gathered) like u.p and Bihar then we will be in trouble. Please told me about crowding at sleeper coach at that region.

Earlier ,anytime I went to Kerala n TN from Bangalore, I always used to take only sleepers..
Only after I started traveling to North India,I realised I had to book atleast 3ac for comfortable travel.. nw that I keep traveling to hwh on the east coast, AC is more warranted

Entry# 2111391            Tags   Past Edits
FIRST MEMORY OF 2016 on the LAST DAY OF 2016 as my 11,000th jotting on IRI.
.
I am a twenty two year old railfan. I like trains and rail-photography to a level of near-obsession and will continue to, forever. I like to travel across the length and breadth of the country and visit new routes, through unseen stations in never-travelled-before trains. Even the faintest of rail-related discussions happening in my vicinity catch my attention and get me pumped up. Nothing could ever kill my passion for trains and nothing ever will, or
...
more...
so did I think. What I write below is an account of an event that proved me wrong there.
.
Planned by an over the hill craze for a few Railfanning spots, facilitated by mid-flood IT business shutdown and accompanied by two of the closest RF friends, this trip that covered Moradabad - Delhi - Chennai – Palani – Pollachi – Palakkad – Shoranur - Nilambur – Trivandrum – Kanyakumari – Mangaluru – Hassan – Bagalkote – Solapur – Chennai was one, waiting for which really got me on my toes. It spanned over six thousand kilometres, a distance more than the air distance between Delhi and Rome. And it all did happen. This isn’t about the experience of continuously being on the go for those eight days. It’s about the New Year reward that came complementary my way for being a railfan. For being a railfan and for being... Well let me start it from scratch.
.
January the first. 2016.
.
Solapur Junction: 14139-TNP-WDM3A was the front loco of the twins that were bringing in Sai Nagar Shirdi – Chennai Express to the station. I was done and dusted with my adventures and all I needed to do was to board this train and be in Chennai the next day. I clicked a pic and noted down the loco numbers to put up on my trip-diary, as has been my habit when suddenly a voice landed at me beaming from behind. “Loco number kaiko note kiya tu? Photo kaiko nikala?” said the RPF personnel asking me the reason of noting down details and clicking photos on the station. This wasn’t something new to me. Photography at railway stations is prohibited and many railfans do get questioned every now and then. I replied something on the lines of “hobby-passion-love for trains” and the like. He was casually asking me some other questions to which I was patiently responding when he suddenly decided on asking something different. “Naam kya hai?”, What is your name?
.
In ten minutes the train was scheduled to leave. I hardly had any time to comprehend and question the context of questions being asked to me. All that I had on my mind was to get done with the interrogation and proceed for home. Destiny however had different plans for me.
.
My name, “Zahaib” brought about a stern look, ferocious in a way to the face of the personnel. The little strands of decency vanished and with no need of bringing in the judge of a court into this picture, a judgement was taken. A six letter name was enough to take a call on dictating the further course of action to be vented out to a 21 year old clicking a train on a railway platform. My arm was grabbed in a deliberately intimidating fashion, and if not for me catching up with the pace of the personnel, I was almost dragged to the office of the Station Master.
.
I do not happen to understand Marathi, but given a similarity of the language to my mother tongue, I could make out the personnel’s report to the SM concerning me. Three important points, bulleted out by the personnel himself, were narrated to the SM. One. He was clicking the locomotive. Two. He noted down the loco number. Three. His name is Zahaib. An RPF constable was summoned through an announcement on the Public Address System of Solapur Junction and the VERY SAME three-point-story was conveyed forward. Dignified intelligent personalities, placed that high on the hierarchy of one of the most coveted public sector organization of the country, an organization that homes my passion and the biggest obsession of my life, didn’t require any other detail besides my name to judge my intentions. The person whose life revolves around these trains and for whom Indian Railways is a way of life, an obsession he proudly boasts of, was unable to rubbish criminal allegations subtly being thrown at him just because his name didn’t allow him to.
.
I was taken to a police station. The last and the only time I went there throughout my life was when I was respectfully invited there for my passport verification call.
.
I was forced to sit down on the floor. The last time it happened in my life was when I was in primary school.
.
I was shouted on and interrogated. The last time someone talked to me in a tone that loud was my very own dad when I misplaced some 1500 bucks, back in my teens.
.
Police interrogation went on for over two hours. I was narrating a complete story of how my interest in trains was born, how it grew and how it culminated. I had over 6000+ pics in my cam. Each and every one was checked. The person holding it went through a change of emotions from those of didactic anger to utter disbelief. 98% of those pics were about trains and nothing else. He was puzzled to the limit that he couldn’t resist asking me what I get out of this. I was again speechless, why wouldn’t I be, for putting your unconventional and weird way of life to a normal person isn’t an easy job.
.
Upon me producing proofs on the lines of my Appointment letter and ID cards, I could convince them of my words and was let free at around 4PM, post signing a letter of apology. Apology for going beyond the rules to love my passion in spite of having a “dangerous” name.
.
I had missed the train and my town was a handsome distance apart. For the next four hours, I sat in the waiting hall of Solapur Junction, attempting to contemplate the sequence of events that had just happened. The attendant there was an old, differently abled man who had been audience to the show. He somehow walked the distance and came forward to me to say a word or two. And the effort by him did really help a great deal.
.
For the next four months, I hadn’t been on any RF trips whatsoever. My blogging went sporadic and I saw myself distancing myself from RF Meets. “Nothing could ever kill my passion for trains and nothing ever will”. Huh. I had been proved totally flawed in that statement of mine.
.
If the rules dictate the anonymous me, simply on the basis of my actions, to be arrested for my passion, I’m ready to go behind the bars and I can vouch for not losing an ounce of interest in my hobby. But if you bring in my personal life into judging my passion incorrectly, I’m afraid I can’t even defend.
.
This narration doesn’t intend to play hate-speech for any community in general. Nor does it intend to invite sympathy for another. It just puts up a very generic appeal to desist from judging someone by what he’s called and what he looks like. You never know how strongly will one judgemental conversation of yours, change him as a person.

These ideologies are deeply set in the minds of our society..Sad part is , you ll be judged for your name a lot more places than jus the platforms!
Don't lose hope, don't ever leave your passion unless you're at fault .. for you might be forced into a lot more such situations in your life..
