It was a good day to ride a train. After a religious pilgrimage, Pakistani Muslims of the Sunni sect did just that on their way home. Every passenger had a special spot on the jampacked train as it snaked its way, precisely right on its track. Thousands jammed Multan, Pakistan for a three-day event which concluded on Sunday, November 2, 2008.
The scene seems to be lifted from an interesting page of the Guinness World Records. It’s note-worthy that overcrowding and potential accident situations in public transport are innocuous but real in many places in the world. (Photo Credit: AP/Tanveer, K)
