This name puts me in a dream.. I do not know still why
something must be very special for me as it may sound
very ordinary to you.. and why?
So when I was a kid and taken by my parents for a travel to Delhi
I heard that name. It rings me inside whenever I feel like to book a
ticket in Northern India.. it gives me a dense desire to explore
it is so dense like the historical attributes inside
I feel dreamy when I can hear that junction name comes in between
like a traveller's native ambition to reach out for an unknown
A spark in words inside 'Moghul Sarai Junction'

YES INDEED, THE NAME -'MOGHUL SARAI' IS SHROUDED WITH THE ROMANCE OF HISTORY! PERHAPS IN THE REMOTE PAST, DURING THE RULES OF THE GREAT MOGHULS, THE WEIRED TRAVELLER PAUSED TO DRINK, EAT & REST AT THE WAYSIDE SARAI SET UP BY THE MOGHULS! AND LATER DURING THE BRITISH RULE, WHEN IT BECAME AN IMPORTANT RAILWAY CHANGE OVER PLACE ENROTE TO DELHI, - WITH THE SUFFIX OF 'JUNCTION' IT GOT BLESSED! 10! -Raj BLESSED! 10!
