Social media users praised Indian Railways for booking a cab to Vadodara for a Gujarati student Satyam Gadhvi after his train got cancelled. Gadhvi’s journey from Ekta Nagar railway station to Vadodara from where he would go to his final destination, Chennai, was cancelled due to heavy rain.
Gadhvi posted a video on Twitter, thanking the railway staff who provided the cab to the only passenger. The video was shared by the official handle of DRM Vadodara on Wednesday.
“Today, I am very thankful to the whole railway department of Ekta Nagar and Vadodara for making my journey a success. The train which I booked was supposed to depart from Ektanagar at 9:15. But because the tracks were washed out because of rain, the train was cancelled at the last moment,” Satyam Gadhvi said in the video.
“But because of the very supportive staff of Ekta Nagar, they hired a car for me. They showed how much importance they give to each and every passenger of railways. The driver was nice. He took it as a challenge to catch a train from Vadodara,” he added.
Gadhvi is studying engineering at the Indian Institute Of Technology (IIT) Madras and had planned to return to Chennai to attend classes after a break. A resident of Gujarat, Gadhvi booked a railway ticket from Ekta Nagar in the Narmada district to Vadodara, from where he would go to his final destination, Chennai.
Social media users were appreciating the railway staff’s initiative in the comment section of the post.
