SHIKOHABAD, UTTAR PRADESH: It is just another day in the office! What may seem to be the work of a daredevil or lunatic for people of other countries, is usually considered to be completely normal and a part of daily life for millions of Indians. Crossing railway tracks while putting his or her own life in danger is a daily occurrence here, in this part of the world. A similar incident happened at Uttar Pradesh’s Shikohabad station where a woman risked her life to cross a railway track instead of using foot over bridge. Fortunately, she was saved by a station staffer. The unidentified woman crossing the railway dodged death twice as she went back to pick up a water bottle after being rescued from a train.

However, as the quick-thinking station worker picks her up and stands back she bends down to pick up the water bottle sitting on the platform. She picks up the bottle and gets her head out of the way in a fraction of a second as the train hurtles by. As the train passes the woman then walks casually away, unperturbed by her brush with death. A policeman calls her back for a word and two other rail workers join in attempting to point out what might have happened but she walks seemingly unbothered about the severity of the incident.

Just a few months ago, a shocking video widely circulated online showed a woman calmly talking on her cellphone right after she faced an entire train pass over her. In the hair-raising video, a woman can be seen lying on the railway track as a goods train crosses over her. After the train leaves, the girl can be seen getting up unharmed. Her head was covered with a scarf. She could then be seen talking on her phone very calmly not even seconds after facing the incident in fact she was still on the railway track. The video was posted on Twitter by IPS officer Dipanshu Kabra along with a caption that read, “Gossiping on the phone is more important.” She then casually gets off the track and onto the station as if nothing has happened. The woman was then seen walking away and talking to the man who was taking the video of the whole event. Netizens were not only surprised but they were left angered by the incident.
