NEW DELHI (AP) -- A speeding express train collided with a passenger train at a station in eastern India early Monday, mangling the carriages and killing at least 35 people, railway police said. The crash happened at about 2 a.m. when the Uttarbanga Express slammed into the stationary Bananchal Express as it was leaving the platform at Sainthia station, about 125 miles north of Calcutta. Television footage showed twisted metal. The force of the crash was so intense the roof of one car flew into the air and landed on an overpass above the tracks.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer RANSON, W.Va. - When Dr. S.P. Nayak travels back to his native India to visit his 80-year-old mother, his family tells him to stay off the roads. Not only are the drivers dangerous and the road conditions hazardous, those injured in accidents frequently cannot get an ambulance to take them to a hospital. "There's a limited number of ambulances and too many patients," Nayak said. The Ranson, W.Va., orthopedic surgeon decided to do something about it. He purchased a used ambulance from the Independent Volunteer Fire Co. and is going to have it shipped to India.

Far from this idyllic town, Zane Steward traveled the globe to help others. The assistant manager of E.L.M. Shoes in the square of downtown Greencastle, Steward, 25, said it was just coincidence that his first humanitarian trips involved shoes. It was the shoe store's partnership to collect donated shoes in the past that raised Steward's awareness of the group. Steward said they have run a short donation period in exchange for a discount on new shoes once a year, every other year.

Smith said all 13 police units responded to break up the melee at the Taj India restaurant at 28 S. Potomac St. “It looks like the officers got there and they were trying to clear it out before it got worse,” Smith said. “They had to pepper spray at least one guy.” Smith said two Hagerstown women and a Frederick, Md., man were charged with failing to comply with police.

The New Year causes us to look back and to look forward. To view what has been and what might yet be. For Washington County, the look back involves empires, once mighty and now gone; love stories that end in private chapels on English meadows; and adventures with beginnings in humble country stores in small towns at the edge of the Western Maryland mountains. Levi Leiter, of Swiss Mennonite descent, was born and grew up in the village his family platted just north of Hagerstown known to this day as Leitersburg.

By Anne Chovey Special to The Herald-Mail I confess: I don't know much about Indian food. I think tandoor is an oven and curry is blend of spices, but I am stumped when it comes to vindaloo and masala. What I do know is that I like it. A lot. So my friend, Pap Ricka, and I were excited to see that a new Indian restaurant, Sitar of India, had opened in the Railway Lane shopping center at Hagerstown. Pap and I invited our friends Penny Pasta and Sam Osato join us. Penny and Sam love Indian food and were our guides in making our selections.

EAST LAKE, Fla. - They sat around the bar area of Surinder Dhaliwal's spacious townhouse kitchen on a recent Friday evening and watched as she gracefully moved around the room. From refrigerator to stove to sink and back to the stove, where she stirred sizzling garlic or ginger, Dhaliwal never stopped talking. Her magenta scarf flowed with her every move. The strands of her hair, perfectly clipped in a bob, never swung out of place for long. Dhaliwal, 60, was in her element teaching others how to cook authentic Indian cuisine.
