The Woman on Platform 8 by Ruskin Bond is a story about love and affection that transcends all barriers of kinship.
It is narrated in the first person by a school going boy Arun. All the events are seen from his point of view.
The story resolves around Arun's encounter with a stranger - a mysterious woman.
The woman in a white sari treats him like a son. She offers him tea and snacks.
She helps him feel comfortable. Her dignity and humanity come in sharp contrast with the vanity and arrogance of Satish's mother.
Arun's calling her 'mother' at the time of parting is a sweet gesture of recognisation of a loving relationship.
As a matter of fact, there is no Platform 8 on the Ambala station.
