    What a wastage of precious lives!! If such a huge object like a train cannot be seen by the rider, what use can there be from a comparatively small railway crossing? The noise of the train is very very large compared to bell at the gate. People should know how to appreciate their own lives, to protect themselves from harm. After that the facilities provided by state and society can be of use.
