Stuntmania strikes again in local
Mumbai - The time - around midnight. The scene of action - Vile Parle railway station. The spotlight - on a few boys who still seem to be unaware of the perils of stunts in local trains.
On Thursday night, a group of boys were caught on video doing exactly what the railway police have been exhorting citizens not to do - performing daredevil stunts on fast running local trains.
The boys caught the train at Vile Parle station. As time passed, the daredevil show began. One of the "superboys" pulled a life threatening stunt, swinging gradually from the train doors, climbing the windows and swinging in simian style from one door to another.
He took only 17 seconds to do this. 17 heart stopping seconds in which anything could have gone wrong. Will the city's misguided youth ever learn?
