Artist's Description

Long before the car in 3rd class fills up with little to no room left to lie down, these two young men enjoy space to themselves. This was the only time I purchased a 3rd class ticket on India Railway, while travelling in India, as I was facing a countdown on my visa and was pressed to get to my next destination. Due to bad timing with the schools on holiday, no tickets in 1st or 2nd class were available for me within the time frame I had left before my visa would expire. It was just an hour’s trip, but the conditions in the 3rd class car were less than acceptable, with some seats and benches deteriorated down to the wood. I was glad to know how difficult and uncomfortable the experience is for all those who cannot afford a ticket any higher priced than this, to have a better sense of how challenging it is for the less-privileged. A little humility never hurts, and most important, I was surrounded by friendly, respectful, and kind human beings. ©2014 Valerie Rosen; All rights reserved.
