I took the picture because the train station is big and imposing. It’s big and imposing because Varanasi is a large town, but has only one train station. Many other large Indian cities have two, three or more train stations. It’s also teeming with a mass of humanity that seems to want to squat on the floor inside, making it almost impossible to get through to the trains. I’m not sure that some of them aren’t squatting there in perpetuity.
