Charbagh Railway Station, Lucknow

By Mridula Dwivedi April 18, 2009 9 Comments
When I went to Lucknow this time, I was traveling on a badly upset stomach. So, when I boarded the Lucknow Shatabdi Express Train, I had already taken a medicine and knew I could not afford to eat anything on the way. And that is how it was. I had a book to read but then sleep was dominating me so much that I just dozed off and hardly woke up for the entire 6 hours journey!

I finally woke up at Kanpur and decided to write a message to one of the conference volunteers at IIM Lucknow. I was reaching around noon, and I wanted to inquire if it would be all right to head straight to the campus. They were kind enough to accommodate me a few hours ahead of time.

When I got out at the station, I was still so full of sleep, and really scared if I would keep well or not. So, when people started asking if I needed an auto rickshaw, I was not really pleased. As a rule the guys who hound you at the Railway Station, try to overcharge you too. But after a while I realized that all these auto guys had to go through prepaid and would charge a fixed price only, probably because there is a policeman at the exit and only prepaid autos are supposed to ply. Now I like that idea. Haggling with auto guys is the last thing you want after a tiring journey.

  1. Hi! My hospital is just 5mins from the Charbagh railway station Kamla Devi Memorial Hospital at LaTouche Road. If you need any medical help it would be available, next time. I have been following your blog for some time.

  2. Namita, many thanks for the comment, I can see that you too like to travel and blog about it among other things. I would surely keep this in mind the next time, it is so kind of you to let me know about the hospital.
