A railway platform is an elevated place inside a railway station where the passengers stand to get on board the train and also get down. It is a crowded place where the train arrives. There are vendors and porters who wait for the arrival of a train. The porters rush to the passengers to carry their luggage and the vendors begin to shout to sell their wares. Adjacent to the platform there are waiting rooms for males and females, ticket counters, and a station master’s room. There are benches which are fixed to the floor for the passengers to sit on while waiting for the train. On the two ends of the platform, the name of the station is written which can be seen from the railway compartment easily. A railway platform should be kept neat and clean and no banana peels should be thrown here and there because a passenger may slip while rushing to avail himself of the train. A railway platform in our country is also a shelter for the homeless and the shelterless poor people and beggars. In the practical sense, a railway platform is a soul to the railway station.
