Hit me, hit me not! March 24, 2007

Posted by Arun Rajagopal in Indian Railways.

Dramatic shot at a railway crossing in India: Passersby make a valiant attempt to move an injured cow away from the path of an oncoming train – the Kota Jan Shatabdi. The cow had presumably been hit on the flanks by a passing train a little while ago. Pic by Karthik Nanda of IRFCA (Indian Railways Fan Club).

Hello Sriram! I’m assuming Karthik should be related to Shanx. Awesome picture though… the one that’s got some story behind it!

Hi this is karthik. A friend of mine unrelated to irfca came to this link thru google. Yup i am Shanx kid bro. I actually came out of train to get my 5rs coin hammered under train wheel 😛 and I got to see that.

The cow was actually scratched by a train earlier, which disabled her. She was definitely alive but unable to walk or get up. The oncoming train was actually running slow but when it saw the animal on the track it stopped there… for some 2 minutes.

It took some 3-4 minutes to drag the animal to safety.

hey this is an awesome photo. I only looked at the photo previously and felt horrible at the thought of what would have happened next – thankfully I read Kartik’s comment above. Great to know she survived 😀

PS: If you don’t mind I’ll borrow this picture to post on the Facebook profile. Thanks. I’ll give credit where it is due 🙂
