Give your opinions. Is bullet train project making worth? Are we in criteria for running that?
Point: Lack of infrastructure that includes- Dedicated freight corridors which is very much needed; railway stations with good infrastructures, Metro rails and their extensions, etc. Before this, do we need to worry for bullet train?
Just give your opinions. Thank You!

Are bullet trains worth the cost ?
We can't say anything jab tak ye bullet train chalti nahi hai . Ye kehna jaldi hogi ki ye trains chalana sahi hai ya galat kyunki considering 2017 mein uska construction etc start hota hai and 2024 tak ye pura hota hai hame aaj ka nahi 2024 ka dekh ke chalna hoga . Future koi nahi janta ki uss time hamare desh ki situation kaisi hogi , hamare aur hamare desh ki economic haalat kaisi hogi. So in my view , it is gamble which is worth taking . Banne ke baad agar successful hua to isse acchi baat aur kya ho sakti . Moreover , hame future proof rehna hoga .
Aaj se 10-12 saal baad bhi agar hum bas Bhopal Shatabdi ke 150 MPS ki khushiya manate rahe , Gatimaan ke CRS clearance ki raah dekhte rahe aur ALD -MGS ki congestion ki problem ko jhelte rahe ye bhi sahi nahi hai . To basic infrastructure ka development jaisi ki EDFC , railway station etc ka upliftement ye sab bhi zaroori hai . So in my views , agar ye dono kaam saath saath chale to accha hai . Bullet bhi aur infrastructure development bhi .
I know ye bohot mushkil hai , bohot kharcha hai in sab mein . lekin mere hisaab se dono fronts pe kaam chalna chahiye , Bullet bhi aur existing infrastructure ka development bhi .

Kafi sahi baat kahi apne. The best way to decrease congestion on trunk routes is to develop and maintain alternate routes. That will automatically increase speed of trains by few kmph.
Jaise ki MP me Jabalpur-Gondia agar BG ho jaye to Jhansi-Itarsi-Nagpur section pe kafi load kam ho sakta hai. Isi tarah Indore-Khandwa ke BG hone par Gwalior-Guna-Indore-Khandwa se DELHI-MUMBAI ek new route mil jaega.
Similarly, the electrification of DLI-JP-AII-ADI route is very important. Uske baad fir BRC-BCT route ki tripling zaruri ho jaegi :)

Double-headed Rajdhani at BCT, PF2 - picture from my 1985 photo album. The reason I could not take a better picture is that I was accosted by a couple of RPFs. I then got permission from CPRO, WR, before shooting more pictures. Will post them soon.

Your favourite journey train - 12310 anytime. Arrives DNR by 4:30-4:45 am and just stands there for about 20-30 minutes so that it doesn't arrives PNBE too early .
your worst journey train - Aahh the agony :( .. This honor goes to 12401 in Dec 2014 . The train departed PNBE 3:30 am and reached NDLS 2:30 am .. Easily my worst journey ever.
Your favourite division - NCR ALD Division .. Especially the CNB ALD section is simply awesome .. speed 130 se neeche shayad hi kabhi jaati hai between CNB
and ALD.
Your favourite railway station - SVDK
Your favourite shatabdi - Have'nt travelled in one yet .. But would love to try 12001/2 ; 12003/4 and 12303/34.
Your favourite rajdhani- Although I have travelled in 12309/10 23 times ( yes I counted them .. :P it is not some estimate) in last 3 years but haven't travelled in some other rajdhani so 12309/10 it is .. though my father says 12313/14 is far superior than 12309/10 so will surely try it some day .. who knows my favorite might just change.
Your favourite duronto - not travelled in one yet .. would love to try 12275/76.
Your favourite superfast- 12565/66 and 12393/94.. Had travelled in 12394 in July 2013 ( that was my first and last journey in that train)
and SK managed to impress me .. I distinctly remember I had reached PNBE by 7:30 am .
Your favourite seat number - Any multiple of 7 will do .. Everyone loves side lower :)
And BTW , fantastic poll Sir , I usually don't login .. I prefer just reading posts on forum and remain logged out but your post compelled me to answer the questions .. Good One (Y)

Sep 07 2015 (16:32)   Haryana my second home, Metro will go to Ballabhgarh: PM Narendra Modi

Residents and tourists from Delhi will travel to Faridabad on the Metro, generate income for the youth of Faridabad and boost the economy,” Narendra Modi said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he would make Haryana, his “second home after Gujarat”, the centrepiece of India’s development story.
Addressing a rally after inaugurating the Delhi-Faridabad Metro corridor, Modi said he spent many years in Haryana after leaving Gujarat. “You all know, Haryana is my second home… Can I forget your love? It is this love which draws me to you every time. I
will repay this, along with interest, by bringing about development,” he said.Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, Union Minister of State for Urban Development Babul Supriyo and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar were among those who attended the rally.
“Faridabad is the ninth biggest industrial estate of Asia. We must help it develop even more. Faridabad is a mini-India. The Delhi-Faridabad Metro line will play a big role in boosting development. Residents and tourists from Delhi will travel to Faridabad on the Metro, generate income for the youth of Faridabad and boost the economy,” Modi said.
He said over an additional Rs 600 crore would be spent to extend the Faridabad Metro from Mujesar to Ballabhgarh in the next phase.
Modi lauded Khattar’s efforts to turn Haryana from a state known for female infanticide to that of “Beti Bachao and Beti Parao”.
Modi said Faridabad would be developed into one of the 100 smart cities on Naidu’s list. “Just being enlisted as a potential smart city by the government does not mean the work is done. You have only cleared the list and entered the competition. But from here, you will have to take the initiative forward. The youth of Faridabad will have to strive to make it one, to live up to the parameters set by the Central government for each potential smart city,” Modi said.
Khattar praised the PM for making five visits to the state within a year.

I was onboard 12310 today. Reached DNR around 4:45AM itself and stayed there till 5:15 .. finally departed and reached PNBE by 5:40. Literally had a blast b/w CNB and ALD . I monitored it's speed by the speedometer app for about 35 minutes b/w ALD and CNB and it covered about 73 kilometre in that interval . It was a good run

For the same reason Facebook's site is blue and white.... So that color blind people don't have problem surfing the site . Because I had read somewhere that Facebook was kept in blue white color as Mark Zuckerberg is color blind but he can see the blue color ( He is red-green color blind) Which actually is the most common type of color blindness . Shayad aisa hi kucch reason ho iske liye
