The ambience of an Indian railway station is incomplete without the pre-recorded female voice that informs passengers of the arrivals and departure of trains. The arrival of computerised announcement system in the Indian railways meant that the variety of voices blaring from loudspeakers in railway stations across the country was replaced by those of a select few. Thanks to our linguistic diversity, or it would have been the same voice announcing the late arrival of of a train in Agartala and the departure of another in Bhuj.
For those who love travelling by trains (like me, though rationing of leaves often forces to take the aerial route) or atleast like the sounds of the railway station here are a few ringtones to bring the feel of the railway station in your mobile phone.
