'India is not for beginners': Viral video shows people in Bihar jumping on the coupling of a train to board | Trending

When an overcrowded train reached a railway station in Bihar, people desperately tried to board through the barriers. Some who failed to do so took a risky route before the train, which was bound for Amritsar in Punjab, left the station: they jumped on the coupling. A video of this incident made the rounds online, and many agreed that “India is not for beginners.”

He also pans his camera towards the second class carriage of the train, where people are “holding on” to the door handles.
