Commentary/Human InterestSWR/South Western -Mar 14 2018 (11:26) Railway commuters turn gymnasts at Whitefield Railway Station
karbang~ 553 news posts
Ducking under stationary goods trains, jumping over the couplers connecting freight coaches, running across railway tracks, entering the station through broken fences is the sight every day at Whitefield Railway Station. The safety hazard claimed a victim three months ago, when a techie was hit by a train while crossing the tracks during peak hours.There is a small overbridge that connects all the four platforms, but it is about 1 km away from the main point of entry. Most commuters enter this station through a larger foot overbridge that connects Kadugodi Bus Stand to Station Road, which leads to the station entrance. The two overbridges are far apart and people – from working professionals and college students to senior citizens and school-going children – would rather run through the tracks or duck under standing trains than walk the distance.

Kyon bulak ke ja rahe ho, aisa karte hain Kutte aur billi;
Bacche budhe sabh dek ke, uda rahe hain aap ki khilli.
Jaan aap ki hai khatre mein, ganimat hai gaadi na chali;
Hosh hawash mein bhi ho, ya ho gaye ho Pee ke talli!!!
Jawaani ke josh mein, kyon chad gaye ho train ki coupling par;
Kuch pal bachane ke chakkar mein, apni jaan daal di jokhim par.
Aisee kartoot karne se pehle’ apne parijanon ka to khyaal kar;
Jo raah sajoye baithe hain pal-pal, tere laut aane ki aas par.

Same issue in Khadki railway station too.
the FOB that connects Aundh road to national Highway is quite a walk from residential areas around aundh road, and hence meany locals there routinely go under the freight trains parked there rather than walk half a km.
Such things/activities are happening in almost every Rly Station on IR network. At many places people are doing so as there is no proper arrangement for crossing tracks, and many a times people do it to save time and effort, However in both the case life of the concerned person is at high risk.
