Images from India: Churchgate Station in Mumbai

Churchgate Station Bombay
Photograph by Jackson Lee. This photograph is taken inside the Churchgate Station in Bombay (Mumbai). The station is the starting point of the Western Railway in the Mumbai Suburban Railway, and it buzzes with the movement of commuters who go to the southern part of Bombay city to their workplaces. Add to that the university crowd, tourists and once-in-a-whilers. The pace of the city is best reflected in rush of the railways stations. The Mumbai Railway System carries over 6 million commuters a day.
