After the completion of one year, when she is a senior now, her gang now started to roam out of the hostel more. Obviously, they have now the confidence and maturity to handle the situation.
On the occasion of her friend’s birthday, her girl gang planned for an outings to Delhi. They took a intercity train to Delhi. It was a local train and local crowd used to travel in these trains. She and her fellow mates have traveled in these trains earlier. They reached the station late and was about to miss the train. They boarded the train in hurry and missed to take ticket for travelling. This was not the first time, they were traveling through the local train without ticket. They have experienced it earlier also and never been caught. So it was a normal thing.
However, this time, they got caught. TERRIFYING IT WAS! They got caught when they were crossing the station in Delhi.
They tried to escape the situation by telling that they are just crossing the station. They also said that they are college students. But railway police was very smart and cross questioned about the address and name of the college. Neither she or her fellow friends was able to give the answer, as they don’t belong to that place. One of the lady police said to her friend, “Let me put you in Jail.” Her friend was almost in tears. Her friend could imagine herself in striped black clothes. It was a difficult situation.
She and her friend negotiated with the police officer. Gave all the money they had for their outing and finally settled the matter.
PHEW! It was learning for all of them. never travel in trains without ticket. If you are not caught 2-3 times, you will definitely get caught fourth time. Whatever money you have saved 2-3 time by taking no tickets will be compensated in fourth time.
