Life at Kamalapur Railway Station

Being a central communication hub, Kamalapur railway station acts as a crucial point for livelihood for many under privileged segment and outright marginal groups of the society. Their struggle for survival, their hopes, aspiration and dreams, their small but not insignificant moments of happiness, can be a story to tell.
The huge open platforms, the rail tracks that merge to infinity somehow tell a story of life and existence. Till to date it remains one of the point of interest for the tourists, both from home and abroad.
The most important story of Kamalapur is of course the attitude and moods of people. As a hub, there cannot be more intriguing than the posture, position and looks of the people, who gather there, some to arrive and some to leave, yet some to stay. Different class of people, including the rich, the middle class and the poor tell their stories, through the language of the self, looks of the eye and expression of mind. This happens mainly because it is the point of entry for many in Dhaka, with hopes and dream and for some the exit, with unfulfilled aspirations.
