    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

Dec 26 2013 (8:35PM)   रेलवे करा रही चूहों को ‘परलोक यात्र।’

मुसाफिरों के साथ अब रेलवे ने चूहों को भी यात्र कराना शुरू कर दिया है। फर्क केवल इतना है कि यात्री जहां गंतव्य तक पहुंच रहे हैं, वहीं चूहों को ‘परलोक यात्र।’ पर भेजा जा रहा है। चूहों की इस यात्र के लिए रेलवे को 25 रुपये खर्च करने पड़...

रहे हैं। चौंकिए मत, यात्री डब्बों में चूहों की धमा-चौकड़ी पर नकेल कसने के लिए रेलवे ग्लू बोर्ड का इस्तेमाल कर रही है। नई तकनीक से बनी ग्लू बोर्ड में लगे गोंद चूहे को अपनी गिरफ्त में लेकर मौत के घाट उतार रहे हैं। टेनों में सफर करने वाले यात्रियों की अक्सर ऐसी शिकायत रहती है कि चूहे ने उनके सामान कूतर डाले। कभी-कभी ऐसा भी होता कि गहरी नींद में सो रहे यात्री की उंगली भी चूहे कूतर देते हैं। चूहों से निपटने के लिए पेस्टिसाइड का इस्तेमाल किया जाता था। हाल के दिनों में ग्लू बोर्ड का चलन आ गया है।
क्या है ग्लू बोर्ड : ग्लू बोर्ड रासायनिक मिश्रण से बना गोंद होता है, जिसे वातानुकूलित कोच की सीट के नीचे जाली के अंदर रखे जाते हैं। कोच में उछल-कूद करने वाले चूहे जाली के अंदर घुसते ही ग्लू बोर्ड में चिपक जाते हैं। ग्लू बोर्ड में चिपकने वाले चूहे गोंद से खुद को आजाद नहीं करा पाते और कुछ घंटे बाद रासायनिक प्रक्रिया से उनकी मौत हो जाती है। 1कोच अटेंडेंट की अहम जिम्मेवारी : यात्रियों के लिए बहाल इस सुविधा ने कोच अटेंडेंट की भी जिम्मेवारी बढ़ा दी है। ग्लू बोर्ड में चिपकने वाले चूहे को बाहर फेंकने का दायित्व अटेंडेंट का है। सफाईकर्मी द्वारा चूहे को फेंक दिया जाता है। टेन के गंतव्य स्टेशन तक पहुंचने पर कोच की जांच भी करनी पड़ती है, क्योंकि अगर ग्लू बोर्ड में चूहा चिपका रह गया, तो सड़ने की बदबू पूरे कोच में फैल सकती है।
क्या कहते हैं अधिकारी : रेलवे के यांत्रिक विभाग के अधिकारी के अनुसार ग्लू बोर्ड को रेलयात्रियों ने एक बेहतर उपाय करार दिया है। इससे चूहे से होनेवाली की शिकायतें मिलनी बंद हो गई हैं।

Ranchi » 21 June 2013 » रांची-यशवंतपुर ट्रेन प्रतिदिन चलेगी : वर्मा रांची, दक्षिण-पूर्व रेलवे के जीएम ए.के. वर्मा ने कहा कि बरकाकाना रेलवे पथ से दिल्ली जाने वाली सभी ट्रेनों के पुराने कोच दो-तीन दिनों के अंदर बदल दिए जाएंगे। उनके स्थान पर एलएचबी कोच जोड़े जाएंगे। यह कोच काफी अत्याधुनिक तकनीक से बनी है। श्री वर्मा हटिया डीआरएम कार्यालय में आज संवाददाताओं को सम्बोधित कर रहे थे। उन्होंने कहा कि रांची- दिल्ली वाया बरकाकाना राजधानी एक्सप्रेस अब सप्ताह में दो दिन चलेगी। उन्होंने कहा कि राजधानी एक्सप्रेस में यात्रियों की भीड़ को देखते हुए यह कदम उठाया जा रहा है। श्री वर्मा ने कहा कि हटिया-यशवंतपुर एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन को निकट भविष्य में प्रतिदिन चलाया जाएगा। उन्होंने कहा कि वह रिटायर होनेवाले हैं और रांची में यह उनकी अंतिम मुलाकात है। अपने कार्यकाल के दौरान उन्होंने

सौगात दिये है। उन्होंने बताया कि फिलहाल 14 बड़े रेलवे पूलों का निर्माण कार्य पूरा कर लिया गया है। शेष बचे तीन निर्माणाधीन रेलवे पूलों का निर्माण आगामी जून माह तक पूरा कर लिया जाएगा। लोहरदगा-टोरी रेललाइन प्रोजेक्ट के बारे उन्होंने कहा कि 2014 तक यह कार्य पूरा हो जाएगा। संवाददाता सम्मेलन में रांची रेल मंडल के डीआरएम गजानन माल्या, सीपीटीएम मुकुल जैन समेत कई रेलवे अधिकारी मौजूद थे।

My wish for whole of the IR for next 8 years.
1.The entire stretch between CSTM-MAS,CSTM-SBC and SC-SBC to be doubled and electrified;there should be atleast 2 daily superfast trains between each of those 4 stations with average speed in excess of 60 kmph and atleast one AC superfast with average speed in excess of 65 kmph.
2.The entire konkan route to be electrified and also doubled in slected but planned stretches.
3.Kashmir Railway to be completed and well utilized with all weather connectivity to rest of the country just like the KR.
4.Direct and daily Rajdhani Express to Agartala with average speed of about 68 kmph;also hope to see new railway links in
...

North Eastern states and their proper utilization.
5.Untill now direct rail connectivity between eastern and western states has been managed very poorly,if we look at the route map of trains like ADI-GHY Express and Parasnath Express and see places like Agra in between,you really start to scratch you head thinking 'why the hell is train going there and shouldn't its route be lot straighter'.
Well its because IR has not utilized its rail link in central India the way it should have.Links like nagda-bhopal,kota-bina etc. could be used to minimise the travel time of these trains by atleast 2-4 hours!
I really hope to see those rail links more propery used and also more rail links to come up in that region.If they complete Lalitpur-Satna-Singrauli rail route,it will be great.
6.Coal India route to be renovated and atleast electrified,if not doubled.It will not only help the cause of point 5 above but also save railway's huge amount of money spent on fuel.
7.And at last but not least,all the trunk routes along with important chord routes to be totally doubled and electrified.
Is it really to much to ask for???

I hope you are right,even if it takes double the time for what I and you are hoping for getting implemented,then only IR can say it is moving towards mordenising its infrastructure.
Increasing average speeds of SF trains over 100 kmph is still a far dream for which we might have to wait another 20-30 years.
