The Ride Begins

Here is an Express Newsline report about taking a slow train through the suburbs:
A group of card-playing friends misses its regular gambler from Thane—post-deluge, he is yet to be traced.
Otherwise, things are more or less the same as always:
A man at the door slaps the bottom of a lady walking on the platform and gets appreciative glances and whistles from fellow commuters.
And at CST, 10:09 am:
"Meet you at 6 pm at Platform No 7" is ignored as somebody else shouts: "You take this paper, give it to me in the evening. The first Kalyan train after the Ladies Special."
