After this prayer, it is the time to retreat, everyone begins to return to their respective homes, then the problem starts, Railways starts operation to carry the people to their homes, but the total capacity to transport the millions is insufficient. The trains in Bangladesh till date are not operated with electric engines, only diesel engines are used, people easily gets on top of the coaches and rides free.
