The sight of a train passing through congested slum area is not new in India. But the video above is quite unique for it shows how the people of a locality have adjusted themselves to a major daily disruption in life and they are not from slums per se.
This video, taken in Hanoi, Vietnam is about a single line passing through a busy locality and between rows of houses that are double storied and even multi-storied. The road that crosses the line is shut with a horizontal gate as the train approaches and then the giant is seen coming with the whistles fully on.
While the person taking the video is amazed by the scene of a huge train passing through a narrow street in a busy locality, a man is also seen in the video who is least bothered about what's going on since it's a part of their everyday life. The train connects Hanoi with Ho Chi Minh City everyday and its journey through what is called the 'train street' is quite a phenomenon to capture for the tourists.
Imagine you step out of your home every day with railway tracks before you to carry huge trains to both directions?
