While the majority of the commuting population is trying to barely survive by asking for a sliver of bumspace ("thoda khisak na!") or trying to avoid the Mahim-Matunga fellow who has just put his feet in your face, there a few who take a different approach to their commute; One such group is the Bhajan Mandali crew.
The Bhajan Mandali are a group of people who basically break into devotional songs on their train ride to work. The stock of songs usually depends on the day. For instance, on a Monday they sing Shiva bhajans. On Tuesdays it is Ganpati. Wednesdays are for Panduranga Vitthala (a form of Krishna) and so on.
"After punishing commuters for spitting and playing cards on trains, the Central Railway (CR) on Thursday cracked down on those singing bhajans."
"'Some people play cards. Some sleep. Some play mischief standing at the exit. We do something better. We sing (devotional) songs,' Pujari said."
