The Thing About Indian Railway Crossings

I have yet to meet an Indian who does not mind waiting at railway crossings till the train passes. While the four-wheeler drivers have little choice but to pass time with music or a long pending phone call, the two-wheel drivers (read cyclists and scooterists)almost always try to slink from beneath the barriers to cross over to the other side.

Moreover, if something is big in India, it is only bigger in Punjab. Of all the times when I have cringed at people risking their safety to save a few minutes (even when they have nothing substantial waiting for them at the other side), this one surely takes the cake!
