On the occasion of Holi, the Indian Railways observe heavy footfalls and a never-ending waiting list. Millions of people from other states return to their hometowns to celebrate the festival of colours. For their convenience, every year Indian Railways resumes the service of special trains across the length and breadth of our nation.
