This incident changed my thoughts once for all. The local was packed owing to holidays at a stretch. A few men got into the ladies compartment(knowingly or unknowingly), when there was no place for the ladies to stand.They stood near the door and proved to be an obstacle for the ladies getting into the coach.

They proved me wrong and continued standing there, commenting every lady getting in! They were of my father's age. But I felt a strong urge to stop them. I got up from my seat, walked up to them and said "This is ladies compartment..."
