Train Travel from Jaipur to Bhopal by JP Madras Express – The Journey Begins


Hi! I am here again, and I want to post a few blogs on my visit to interesting places in Bhopal. My journey to the city of lakes started on the 8th of December. I have always had an interest in the history and culture of our country. The state of Madhya Pradesh, especially the city of Bhopal is steeped in history; it is also the capital of the state. Having reached the station well in advance I stocked myself with a couple of magazines for reading during the journey. The train started right on schedule and I was ready for the wonderful journey ahead. These trips are an integral part of my life as they help me in recharging myself for the stressful life of a businessman. The train travel from Jaipur (JP) to Bhopal (BPL) by JP Madras Express was the beginning of what promised to be a great trip.

It was a 12-hour journey and so I settled down in my seat. The AC compartment of the train was very comfortable as it was cold outside. I started reading the magazines I bought lying down on my seat. An elderly couple were seated opposite to me. After a while we introduced ourselves and started chatting. They happened to go to Madras, now known as Chennai for medical treatment. Their only son lived abroad and they spent a rather lonely life. By the end of the journey, we ended up exchanging phone numbers and I asked them to get in touch with me in case they needed any kind of help in Jaipur.

The train staff members were very courteous and they served a delicious dinner right at 9:00 pm. After finishing of our food, we chatted for some more time before retiring for the night. I started writing my diary for the trip lying on my seat. The chronicles of my numerous journeys have always helped me in remembering the wonderful moments of a particular trip.  The charm of handwritten notes will never cease. After a good sleep, I woke up the next morning. The train travel from Jaipur (JP) to Bhopal (BPL) by JP Madras Express was smooth as the train reached Bhopal on time. I had to go to the hotel for a short while before heading for my first destination, the Birla Museum.

About Author :

"Hi there, my name is Lalit Chandran. I currently reside in ‘Pink city’ i.e. Jaipur where I run a garment export business. Having spent all my childhood in Rajasthan, I fell in love with Indian history and all its glory. So, whenever I get an opportunity, I travel to various places all across India exploring old cities, museums, forts and historic monuments. This blog will catalogue all the places I have visited, people I have met along the way and different cultures I got a chance to experience.

I am hoping sharing all my adventures will help raise awareness about our ancient heritage and maybe help preserve and protect these remnants  of India’s glorious past. Feel free to leave your comments. "
