The Kanyakumari Express: The longest train in India, Toronto, ON

October 15, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join us on this multimedia journey on the Kanyakumari Express!

Indian Railways train #15906, the Dibrugarh-Kanyakumari Vivek Express, travels 4,273km as it winds its way from the north-eastern corner of Assam to the southernmost tip of mainland India, an 85-hour journey which gives it the prestigious title of the longest train in India, by both time and distance.

In words of the author, “If all journeys are teachers, it may well be that a journey to India is the greatest teacher of all.” As Kurt Vonnegut said, “Bizarre travel plans are dancing lessons from God, and it was in search of a new dance that I purchased a one-way ticket on the longest train in India.”

Ed Hanley, our guide, is a Toronto-based multi-dimensional artist – creator, performer, producer, cinematographer, recording engineer, video editor, photographer, writer, and tabla player.
