“You are at a railway station and people are unaware of your presence,” posted an individual.

Another added, “Sir, I stay in Sachin only which is in Surat. What a great picture of yours.”

“The guy sleeping on the bench doesn’t know who he is missing,” shared a third.

“Welcome to Sachin,” wrote a fifth.
