THE RAILWAY PORTER - ESSAY : Mandakini Study Institute - Patna
1 / 3
2 / 3
3 / 3



Visit a railway station, and you are sure to see a porter there. You can easily spot him in
a crowd as he wears a red turban and coat, and is seen carrying luggage from one platform to another.
He is a very important person at the railway station.

All porters wear a brass badge on their arms. This gives them a licence to carry luggage. If there is too
much luggage for a porter to carry, he uses a hand-cart to carry them.

The porter works very hard to make a living. He is not rich and, at times, he and his family have to face many
hardships. Since there are many porters at the railway station, they feel lucky when someone asks them to
carry their luggage. Sometimes, in spite of working for many days, they still find it difficult to make ends

There are times when some passengers do not pay the correct wages to the porter, but haggle or fight with him.
We should realise how hard his job really is, and be kind and thoughtful towards him.
So the next time you see his bright, red uniform, remember who he is, and how hard he works!
