Normal happening in India for the rail traveller.
Another incident of human negligence The railways are incapable of handling the present system. we have to train personnel, improve their attitude, train them, improve infrastructure
And Modi is dreaming of bullet trains? The railways are incapable of handling the present system. First we have to train personnel, improve their attitude, train them, improve infrastructure before dreaming to make Ahemdabad a Tokyo of India. Day dreams can not compensate for the stark reality.
