by Rajasekaran (View MyPage) on Jul 09, 2010 03:39 PMChina is well ahead of India, in almost all the fields. We are still lagging behind China, due to our so called democratic society, politics etc. Our politicians thought thro their life for their wealth and are guided by highly educated our bureaucrats. We need to change our educational system and educational values from the scratch. In India “Higher the education, more the corruption” is the theme. Let us teach good values to our children, grand children, individually.

India can learn?
by Dev (View MyPage) on Jul 03, 2010 07:49 AM
To learn, a student must have the right attitude and the desire to learn. Does India have them? We are so satisfied with ourselves, living on our glorious past. The whole world has overtaken us, but we still indulge in delusions such as India becoming a superpower by 2020 and Mumbai will be better than Shanghai by 2015. We are only fooling ourselves. After Slumdog Millioner came out, the whole world is laughing at us.

We all immediately start comparing our railways and blams all politicians, administrations and railway authorities. But one thing we all forget is do we really need this kind of rail system for the people who is the most uncivilized, ill-mannered, untidy train travellers of the world.
Go and see all compartments and stations. Is it not the public make the stations an open toilet, stick posters in every possible corner inside the train, spit anywhere, throw garbage everywhere, etc etc.
First the public should behave in a civilized manner with the existing system. Naturally the govt would get impressed and would invite foreign partners to build our rail system. But it will never happen, because although we claim our civilization is 6000 years old we indians totally zero in public behaviour and civic sense.
we lag in all fields
by AMIT SEN (View MyPage) on Jun 27, 2010 10:36 PM
We lag behind China in every aspects.
Railways is just one of them.
The reason is clear, becuase the top policy makers are lazy,corrupt,selfish and have no vision, except stealing and looting.
China is way ahead.
India has been ruled by the Congress for nearly 50 years ,there contribution is nothing.
They are greedy and selfish, the top brass is only stashing money in Swiss Banks.

Our railway facilities are not even 10% of as in china.China is 50 yrs forward then us it is mainly due to our corrupt politician as they always thinks of themselves not for the people.In China population is there strength and there govt. help there people but in our country the value of comman people is zero.If our politician are not corrupt we may be in competition with China at present we are nowhere in front of China.

Wharever we say about the govt. or others, it is first “we” who is to blame first. It is our “culture” to makre everything “dirty”. I remember a tourist in singapore who admitted that India is going to be a “big” country, but he said India is a very dirty country. It is really shameful. Unless we behave ourselves in this matter, everything is going to be dirty. However, China is way ahead of India in every aspect. India can not cope with it.

Aircraft-style toilets in all railway-coaches
by Chris (View MyPage) on Jun 27, 2010 01:02 AM | Hide replies
There is an urgent need to install aircraft-style toilets in all railway-coaches of Indian Railways.
The toilets should discharge into a self-contained, onboard, modular sewage-tank, istead of discharging onto the railway tracks below, which is the current practice.
Unfortunately, Indian Railways still employs people to manually clean te tracks of such discharges, within the extents of the railway station, and this is a dehumanizing practice.

4. Low Speed Railway Lines.

6. Regionalism by Railway Minister.
7. Number of People killed by Railways.

FIRST THE INDIAN RAILWAYS NEED TO LEARN
by PEARS (View MyPage) on Jun 24, 2010 05:18 PM | Hide replies
Indian Railways first need to educate their employees to be polite and not arrogance,
Even in a small city like Mysore Railway station go and see the staff at Reservation counter , the male and female employees behaviour ie their arrogance.Its sky high
Its all due to v high salary due to 6th pay commisson.
Their work culture is so bad and report and work for only 5 to 6 hrs , the remaining time they loiter around.
Considering the above , Indian Railways catching up with china is v v remote

My dear freinds, the photograph shown is of the bullet train in workshop ready to go, not the railway station. We are very nonsence to see the rosy picture. Let me ask all of you what you have done to keep clean the train? Please stop blaming politician, babus and so on. Let us start from ourself and then see the change. As fas as chinese comparision, you all are writing freely because of democrasy in India, there are certain side effects of democrasy please take that also in consideration.
PHOTO OF CHINESE RAIL COMING OUT OF TUNNEL/BRIDGE
by Veena Joshi (View MyPage) on Jun 23, 2010 05:54 PM
See the level of difference in the shown photograph of railway coming out of tunnel/bridge and see the current picture of Indian railway entering in to Parsik tunnel while going to Kalyan from Thane. A few years back it was clean and god out side but now covered by slum areas on both sides. Things will have to be changed drastically. The difference between Rich and poor people is widening instead of bridging out the gap. Population control is absolutely must due to which our progress is limited as resources do not increase w.r.t. increase in population. We must attend this issue and educate the people as well as change our laws also for population control.

USELESS TO COMPAIRE CHINA
by subrata banerjee (View MyPage) on Jun 23, 2010 02:22 PM
Though I am not a communist but should appriciate the extreme dedication of national leaders of China for their respectable motherland. This kind of dedicated and honest, sincere ministers are almost not available in India. Indian political leaders prefer to induldge mafias, corruption, appeasemet of minorities in the name of secularism, creation of different cast creed and create vote bank accordingly.
It is cleary understood where is the time for Indian ministers to look after the betterment of their country, instead they remain busy to loot national funds as much as they can. So we the Indians will remain third world and our unscrupulous government will continue to claim that we are one of the power full countries of the world who can n ot even manage to provide basic needs to the public and where the cost of essential materals have been going up and up keeping general public with poor standard.
Too fast is no good!
by Indiadasuperpower (View MyPage) on Jun 23, 2010 12:30 AM | Hide replies
If you ride a train which runs too fast, it is no good. It is almost like an airplane. Imagine what would happen if something happens, like a smoke detector run off or a mad man with a gun? You can not stop the train, and neither can you jump off, so you risk your lives.
I prefer Indian train because though it is slower, but at least I have control of my life.
Re: Too fast is no good!
by Raj Gupta (View MyPage) on Jun 23, 2010 06:34 AM
Actually it is still not safe to ride an Indian train. The safer solution is riding your own legs.
BTW, Indian railways are the most dangerous one in the world even it is slow. More than 20,000 mumbaikars were killed by the system in just 5 years, and 1140 people were killed by Indian railways in 15 months in Chennai only.
