Sir, if I were a loco pilot my hand would always be on the brakes and the horn. At first I thought being a loco piolet was a fun job but some time back one of my friends, who is an electric loco pilot said that he is always cautious near Walayar and his hand is always on the brake since he does not want to hurt an elephant.
