Back in the polluted but familiar walks of Pune and back at the house with the girls for Christmas. Train from Mumbai was interesting…sadly I chose to take the fast long distance Mumbai-Bangalore Express which stops at Pune. Bad move, there were only a few 2nd class carriages. I thought I would be fairly safe in the women’s only one. Well I got a seat, mainly because I was happy to clamber up to what I thought were luggage racks, actually they are overhead seating. Every inch on the floor was occupied but things were fairly civilised until we reached Pune station. What happens when saree wearing ladies turn bad. I literally rugby charged my way out of the train and nearly got swept back in by the press of women trying to get on and get a seat. Elbows out, head down and a few seconds I popped out the other end feeling rather ruffled. Women in India…dangerous!
