Model Answer:
I am one of those persons who hate to be in a crowded place. But it does not mean that I can completely avoid such cramped places especially when our country is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Before giving further details of my experience of being in a very crowded place, I would like to thank you for this topic and the opportunity to let me talk about it.

I had been to many places that were congested with people and where I could not freely move without bumping into other people. But perhaps none of them was as packed as the train station where I went with two of my friends a couple of months ago. The name of this train station was "Singlong Train Station", and it is located on the east side of our capital city. Ironically, we picked this station to avoid the crowd!

I went there in mid-October this year, which was a couple of months ago from now. I was set to visit one of my friends' hometowns just after our semester final. But little did we know at that time that we would face such a large crowd!

As part of our tour to this friend's hometown, we booked our ticket online and went to the train station on a sunny Sunday morning. The roads were not much crowded, and we reached the train station well ahead of time. But as soon as we entered the train station with two of my friends, we noticed that something was not right and there was a sea of people! We could not fathom the gravity of it until we tried to move through this mass. It was quite impossible, and I felt like I was having a nightmare!

I am never a crowd-friendly person. However, there is a limit to the extent of the crowd that I can tolerate. But that day, it was insane. Most trains, on that day, missed their schedules due to an accident, and it created such a deadlock of people. It was at least five to seven times more crowded in an otherwise moderately crowded station! My initial thought was to leave the station and return to my home as soon as possible, but considering my commitment to my friend to visit his hometown, I could not do so. We had to be in this ocean of people for another two hours before trains started to take passengers and we could take our seats on our trains!
