Ladies Compartment

The ladies compartment in Mumbai local trains is also very crowded in peak hours. This photo is of a ladies compartment in an Andheri bound train from Churchgate in the afternoon.
You will find women and young boys selling all kinds of articles like hair clips, bindis, fancy key chains, bangles, money purses, and sometimes even salwar kameez dress material.
Some of it is good quality stuff and a good bargain too. Posted by Picasa


  1. It's impossible to leave a message to each pic but I love them I really love each one of them. You know, your country is so far from western culture and it is so fascinating. So please, take each aspect of life even if it could sound usual to you. For sure it will not for me, for us. Thank you.

  2. Thanks, that's so encouraging. Keeping your advice in mind, I will take each and every aspect of my city and show it on my blog.

  3. wow.. i didn't know there was a ladies compartment!

    Greetings from Madrid! :)

  4. Hi Dsole, Greetings from Aamchi Mumbai (that means greetings from my very own Mumbai). There are not only 2 ladies compartments in the Mumbai local train, but also a common First Class compartment, a seperate First Class compartment for ladies and a small compartment for the physically and mentally impaired (handicapped).
