The indian trains are sometimes as slow as those of the early XIXth century... Thus, we had to travel in that slow charcoal train for close to two days in order to cover a distance of a 1000 km separating Mumbay of Udhampur, last village on the railroad track. From the Bombay train station and its hordes of untouchables carrying all sorts of merchandises, to Delhi employees going to work, we shared our bunk beds with families coming back home to Kashmir, and pilgrims from all over the country. Mostly Hindus, they were all reaching this renownly dangerous region in order to participate to one of the most important northern indian pilgrimage called the "Amarnath Yatra".
