India govt spends around 18 lakhs rupees even for a Poor Indian
by India a (View MyPage) on Jun 27, 2011 05:08 AM | Hide replies
On an average India govt spends around 18 lakhs rupees even for a Poor Indian.
that means even a Kid born in Poor Indian family costs around 18 lakhs to Indian Government.
calculation numbers are below as per the present cost of living in India.
Rs 2500 X 12 months = Rs 30000
Rs 30000 X 60 years = 18 lakhs Rupees.
So the main problem is Population.
Govt of India needs to think seriously on this Issue and implement a Population Control policy something similar to China. Else Indians will have to Struggle a lot.

China’s economic growth
by Kali Mirch (View MyPage) on Jun 21, 2011 02:10 PM | Hide replies
China’s economic & social sector development is boosting the country’s image to unprecedented levels.
This is possible because there is no KALMADI or A.RAJA. in China. A couple of Chinese bureaucrats who stole the country’s wealth through bribes or other means were shot dead.
The Chinese love heir country. Do we love Indians our country? Ever wonder why we had taken forty years to bring the Lokpal Bill.

by NIHARIKA (View MyPage) on Jun 21, 2011 02:33 PM
really which one… as per my knowledge and understanding the fastest speed of Indian railways is 130 km/h on which all Rajdhanis operates.. one train had a trail run between delhi and lucknow which was travelling at 100 miles per hour but was not successful.. so plz let me know which train and which sector is supporting 150 miles per hour..

Shatabdis are also known to run around 150Kmph in certain sections like Delhi-Agra, Mumbai-Surat. The average is less around 70-80.

Yes, below are some:
* There are still many cities in India which are not connected to mainstream by either Road or Rail. Indian Govt has to first provide this basic amenity to these cities/ villages and then start modernization.
* On Railway itself, India still has thousands of Kms to upgrade from diesel lines to electricity lines.
* Economically, unless air travel is severely congested, there is often not a financial basis for building an high speed railway system from scratch as fare of high speed train will be equivalant of air fare.

Observe the picture closely, and focus on the engine up front. Doesn’t it look like a giant Phallus? No wonder it is so popular with travellers who must be really enjoying the ride 😉
Re: Chinese High Speed Trains
by hammy (View MyPage) on Jun 20, 2011 02:06 PM
you people with smart mouth should learn some basics before speaking. most high speed trains are electric multiple unit(EMU) trains. EMU trains do not have a separate locomotive, instead each carriage (or carriage group) has its own traction motor.

pretenders by equating them with ‘stupid squirrels which attempt to open their mouths as wide as elephants do’ !
India and Indians attempting to ape the Chinese and Chinese acheivements immediately bring this saying to mind.
It would be immensely more sensible and nice of Indian Railways to first dispense with the obnoxious practice of discharging the toilet waste from its trains on the tracks !
Even the much maligned and impoverished Pakistan has a railway system that discontinued this practice long ago !
Indian railway stations/tracks constitute one of several national shames and it is only the extreme stupidity of and lack of any real sense of hygiene in common Indians that make the Indian Railways so lackadaisical in reforming itself on this front !

But in the matter of having to brave the strong ‘aroma’ of freshly laid human excreta, there is little difference at all between the ‘Indian luxury train’ and the other Indian trains, isn’t it so ??
And as far as catching up with the Chinese in terms of having clean railway stations and clean tracks are concerned, it might take till eternity for the Indian Railways, might it not ?

India Bullet train project gets closer to realisation
by [email protected] (View MyPage) on Jun 18, 2011 03:22 PM | Hide replies
AHMEDABAD: The dreams of Amdavadis to reach Mumbai in less than two hours have moved a step closer to realisation. The detailed project report for the bullet train between Ahmedabad-Pune has been finally submitted to the railway board.
The report has pegged the cost of the project, which covers nearly 530 km between Ahmedabad-Pune, at around Rs 56,000 crore. Of this, around Rs 50,000 crore will be used for the construction of tracks and other infrastructure alone. Officials in the western division said that once the detailed project report gets a clearance, the fund sharing will also be decided between the Maharashtra and the Gujarat governments. The bullet train, which is capable of running at 350 km per hour speed, aims to reduce the travel time between Ahmedabad-Mumbai-Pune to less than three hours.
The current travel time for the 450 km distance between Ahmedabad and Mumbai is six hours and thirty minutes by the non stop Duronto train. The same for the 100 km

Indian ministers for sake of votes keep cutting rail budget in certain parts of india..the rest of the money dissappears and end up in swiss, bahamas or monaco bank accounts…they take 11 years to make an 8 km long bridge ..where china takes 4 years to build a 36 km long bridge……we in India will never see Bullet trains in India atleast for next 25 years..by then il be 50 years old :)))))
