Describe an important journey that was delayed

India is a beautiful and diverse country and there are so many things I love about it. Unfortunately, its public transportation is not one of them, especially trains and buses in India. Trains and buses often get delayed because of reasons like traffic, fog and other unforeseen circumstances. Today, I am going to talk about one time when I got delayed because of something unexpected. My parents and I were travelling to Ahmedabad for my cousin’s wedding, and it was the middle of the monsoon season.

However, we were travelling through Rajasthan, which is one of the drier parts of India. So, we weren’t expecting any rain, but nature had other plans for us. It started raining about five hours into the journey and it rained incessantly for hours. We still thought it was ok and it’s just rain and it would subside sometime soon. But it didn’t. In fact, our train stopped at one station because everything ahead was flooded. A railway official told us that it was one of the worst floods in the state and the railway tracks were submerged under 2-3 inches of water.

I vividly remember one scene when we entered a railway office to enquire when the train would leave. All the chairs were floating, and the railway officials were sitting on the top of tables. When we all think about that journey, it is the first scene that comes to mind. Finally, after hours the train moved again. We missed the wedding, but we did attend the reception which was the next day. When I think about it, I don’t remember anything about the return journey. The floods did cause inconvenience, but it also made the journey much more memorable.

Follow-ups (Important journey that was delayed Cue card)

  1. What mode of travel do you consider the safest? 
I think earlier I considered travelling by car to be the safest but because of the increasing traffic and road accidents, I now consider train journey as the safest. So, whenever I have to travel long distance I travel by train. I also consider air journeys to be safe, but the recent airplane disappearances have made me less sure.
  1. How do people travel long distance in your country? 
I think the most common means of travel for majority of the people is train. However, with increasing incomes, many people have started travelling by air as well.
  1. How can travelling be useful to people? What do you think people can learn by travelling to 
other countries?
Travelling is useful is many ways. First, its one the best ways to meet new people and make friends. Secondly, it enables us to learn about new cultures and traditions. Travelling also in a way breaks the monotony of everyday life. There is something very enjoyable about planning a holiday and visiting other places.
