WTF is Nahur???

I had a weird experience a couple of nights ago. I was travelling by train to drop a friend off at Mulund. I was in the general compartment and was ticking the stations off.. Ghatkopar, Vikhroli, Kanjur, Bhandup.. and then I got off. To find myself on a strange, kinda bare platform. Looking around I asked someone if this was Mulund and he looked at me and told me it wasn't. It was 'Nahur'. I got back on to the train, wondering if a whole goddamned station had just come out of nowhere (and I mean "nowhere"!). When I got off, my friend gave me a hard time insisting that the station had been there all along... before finally letting me in on the fact that it had only come up less than a month ago.

So, in case you cared, Nahur is between Mulund & Bhandup, cost 2.5 crore to build and caters to more than 2.35 lakh commuters (wow).

Crappy image... we'll just have to take Google's word that it's Nahur.

Don't you read your newspaper? It was mentioned often last year and Lalu himself came to Mumbai to open the station...
