Jaipur: The Metro has become a new hang-out place for the citizens of Jiapur City. The scorching heat, with the maximum temperature in the city hovering at 44 degrees Celsius, couldn’t deter people from thronging the Metro stations on Sunday. According to JMRC officials, around 1 lakh passengers travelled in the Metro on Sunday.

There were signs of surprise, happiness and excitement among the Metro riders from the moment they queued up in the serpentine lines till the time they exited the train.

Chandpole and Mansarovar stations and Metro trains were all chock-a-block with passengers. People patiently waited in long queues as they were all excited to board the Metro for the first time.

Nekchand, a policeman managing the queues of passengers at token counters, said, “I am into the Metro duty since Wednesday. I think the Sunday’s token and smart card sales are going to break earlier records. As all are excited to see the Metro stations and the train, they are very cooperative.”

Navneet Sharma came from Udaipur with his family to attend a marriage ceremony on Saturday. He urged his relatives to visit a station and travel in the Metro.

“Nearly 50 members of our family have come here. For most of us, the Metro train is a new thing. I am very happy and satisfied with this new service. Chandpole station which is the only underground station gives you a feel of some foreign country. Most important thing is that stations and the train are neat and clean.”

Aparajita Singh, a software engineer, was seen taking a selfie with her father in the Metro. “I am sending this picture to my sister who lives in Mumbai. We are having a great time here. I must thank the authorities for converting the dream of Metro into a reality.”

As the Metro train departed from Chandpole, people screamed in joy and were seen asking each other to take pictures. “My mobile phone camera does not have a selfie feature, so I asked an uncle to click my picture,” said Ridhima Kaushik, a student of a private college in Mansarovar.

While the train was plying at the speed of almost 40 km/hour, people screamed again when they saw another Metro train passing their train on the parallel track.

There were some passengers like Imran Ali, a labourer engaged in polishing work of semi-precious stones, who travelled between Mansarovar and Chandpole four times from 12 pm to 3 pm. “Itni garmi main fully air-conditioned train ka maja aa gaya (I enjoyed travelling in the fully air-conditioned train in this scorching heat),” he said.
