You are waiting for a train on a railway platform. Your three-year-old niece is standing on your iron trunk containing the luggage. Why does the trunk not recoil as she jumps off on the platform?

It happens because of the inertia of the trunk. Inertia is a property of mass. Since, the mass of the trunk is much greater than that of the kid, It does not recoil and remains fixed.
