Default Train ride in Mumbai

On some other forum, I had written India never stops surprising you.
This one will surprise anybody.

So if that's what Indian folks do in their spare time . . . how did the population grow to be what it is today?

This vdo caused quite a furor about 2 yrs ago, with the usual 24 hr breaking news style reportage- RPF claimed they will catch these "stuntmen".

BTW This vdo seems to be shot between Cotton Green & Ray Road stn. on harbour line were the train speed is around 40KM /hr or less due to close proximity between 2 stn. The guys are probably from Mankhurd-Govandi slum belt & work as hawkers/shop asst. in Masjid area. We have our fare share of these "stuntmen" from Mumbra/Mira Road. We call them "Salim Hatela"

Some Bombay-ite told me he is from Bandra. He even told me his name.

Not surprised.

Train surfing has been a problem in Germany for years.

This is one of many vids on YT:
