A Railway Porter

A railway porter is a familiar figure in a railway station. He is in his blue uniform. He always bears his registration number. He generally moves around and looks for passengers who might need his help. When the train arrives he becomes very busy, moves from this compartment to that one in search of the luggage of the passengers. Generally, a porter is a healthy person and an expert in carrying goods and luggage. He has always a piece of cloth with him for putting the goods on his head. A railway porter knows very well about the railway timing and helps the passengers. He most of the time wants to get more from the passengers beyond the fixed rate. A porter generally obeys the command of the leader, the ‘Sardar’.
