I am a person who remains busy throughout the year and hardly finds any time for leisure and holidays. But after a long time I had got a break from work and the vacation was really long. It was supposed to stretch over some 12 days. So I wasted no time and started drafting a plan, all by myself, to make a visit to the nation capital, New Delhi.
I had visited New Delhi once when I was a child but it scarcely had any footprints in my mind. As I was very young then, I could not visit many places. Or I can say that I might as well have visited, but nothing was left in my mind.
I started my journey to New Delhi via PNBE NDLS Special Express. The train starts off from the Patna Junction and ends its journey at the New Delhi station. I boarded my train from the Patna Junction, which is also known as the PNBE Junction in Railway abbreviation. The train operates for just four days in a week so I had to plan it accordingly.
I finished my work on Saturday and boarded the train on a Sunday afternoon. I had deliberately planned my trip to kick start on Monday morning as I was sure that people in New Delhi would move to work and the visibly crowded streets of New Delhi would be much sparse and calmer on working days.
My journey started from Patna at 12:15 pm in the afternoon. It was the month of October and the temperature of New Delhi was supposed to be cooler. Hence, it was just the perfect time for me to visit New Delhi. The train went passed Bihar and went through Uttar Pradesh till it finally reached the Nizammuddin Railway Station in New Delhi.
I covered many places such as Kanpur, Allahabad, Mughal Sarai Junction, Ghaziabad and Buxar and finally reached at my destination. It was neither a very long journey nor a too short one. I spent around 16 hours in the train. But since I had chosen the sleeper class, I could enjoy the majestic land terrains of India through the India. The journey by PNBE NDLS Special was fun-filled and topped with odysseys.
