160 is 1.6 times faster than 100
so obviously the person will have less time to react and move away from track then 100..

Sir main bhi to vohi bola fencing ki jaroorat to had jagah h because India me log itni aasani se rules ko follow nai karte
Yaha europeon countries jaisi samajhdaar public na h bhai
Azadpur Delhi me dekho signal ke pole ke sath to logo ke gharo ki diwaare h
Koi sarkar kuch nai bolti bcoze unka vote bank h.
understand people get killed bcoze of overcrowded trains , bhai mai to roz dekhta hu aise incidents. Logo ko apni Jaan ki parvah nai h unhe bas train me chadna h
10 saal 15 saal ke bacche hote h Jo railway tracks pe gulli danda khelte h
Baccho me itni samajh nai hoti.
Or na hi sarkar ko parvah h.

Dear Sir,
Does it mean that People will stand on tracks & wait till end for train to come... N then they will say that yaar train to 160-200 ki speed pe aayi..Aur Agar 100 pe aati to hum side me chale jaate... I hope u got my point.. Agar Gatiman 100 pe hoti to shayad ye discussion chalu hi nahi hota... Further, Fencing is costly too looking at the length of Indian Railways.. It require huge cost & material... Fir bhi fencing safe rahegi ya nhi cant say bcoz yaha log fencing ko bhi tod dete hai.. I have seeb this at some places in Mumbai where people broke safety walls, fencing & othet barriers...

Suresh Prabhu’s tweet on new AC train upsets bureaucrats
Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu tweeted that the Central Railway (CR) will now get an air-conditioned train soon, but officers are miffed that the new train would be a Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL)-make train, whose non-air-conditioned trains currently plying on the mainline are notorious for its breakdowns.
CR officials have replaced the electrical works of three out of the eight non-air-conditioned BHEL trains. “We currently have five BHEL trains on the CR which have to be sent into service every day and handled
with kid gloves. Another three were given a complete electric overhaul and have stopped giving us trouble since a few months ago, but yes BHEL is the worst performer in the system,” said an official on the condition of anonymity.
The BHEL is plagued with many issues like breaking down of the engine, short circuit in the electrical panel located in the motorman’s cabin, delay in breaking, etc. “To be honest we would have preferred to get even 10 of the Bombardier make trains than this one BHEL air-conditioned one,” said and official who maintains the local train also known as a Electric Multiple Unit (EMU).
Officials said that Mr Prabhu’s tweet has given the impression that a separate air-conditioned train has been allotted to CR but they soon found that this has been done as a way to compensate for all the 72 brand new non-air-conditioned Bombardier trains to the WR.
The railway minister tweeted at 12. 01 pm, “One AC EMU rake has been allotted to Central Railway, will improve passenger experience in Mumbai. We are constantly endeavouring to improve services”. This led to a flurry of enquiries amongst the railway officials who then realised that the train was actually slated to come to WR, but was diverted to CR in a last minute call taken by Mr Prabhu and the Railway board.
Another reason behind the diversion to CR was the logistics of maintaining the different types of trains, claimed sources. “If WR has to maintain the new Bombardier make, which are as many as 72 as well as the current rakes that ply on their line like Seimens, Alstorm and retrofitted Alternate Current plus the new BHEL air-conditioned train there is a big chance of an oversight sooner or later. So it makes more sense to send the air-conditioned train to CR,” added the official.
The train is expected to arrive in Mumbai mid-April after which it will go through a rigorous process of testing and will finally be accessible to commuters by the end of this year.
Justification 👆🏻
WR playing smart. They want AC trains from ICF.

How easily we leave food in the name of taste, saying I'm full and throw it but the same piece of loaf can be a diet for someone.
I was in Jabalpur yesterday I just had Lays n Coffee on breakfast so was feeling hungry at 2pm. I went to nearest one the Samdhariya Mall and at 3pm ordered Onion Uttapam. He gave me a big sized uttapam that was in two parts. I ate one somehow but I was feeling too full for another part. I dont wanted to waste it so I asked the person at counter to wrap it. I took the wrapped Half uttapam and thought will eat during dinner with ketchup n tea.
was 7pm and I was waiting on pf, suddenly a very old guy apx 70years came and sat next to me. He was looking very much financial striken, poor clothes.
I dont know but after watching him for 10 minutes I asked him "Baba kuch khayenge kya aap ?"
To which he replied in shaking and miser tone "Kya khau Kaise khau? ".
I told him that I have something to eat and said "Saaf hai, Accha hai jutha bhi nhi hai" and gave that uttapam to him after unwrapping. He was looking into amazement then I thought he might feel it less tasty as its just Uttapam, I teared the sauce sachet and poured it on corner.
He ate first bite and I asked him "Kaisa H ? " and he said with a glow in eyes "Badhiya hai..."
After a moment he took out his glass, he had glass I was having water, He had hope I had Will and I poured water from my bottle and he drank it...
Later I gave a buiscuit packet to him so that he can eat it later.
During lunch I was wondering that why I am not able to eat full Uttapam and feeling full so early but later I realized the grains of that part were meant for the old man's meal that day..
Its the pic of him while eating. I dont wanted to take his face as i thought he may feel bad if I click pic of him. So I clicked this much only...
Its one more experience added to my travel experience diary ..

Great thought & Even I follow this everyday that food should not be wasted. I don't even leave small piece of food unless I am not able to eat. Many people don't get enough food for two times & people waste food like anything.

What a joke of a train! The SLOWEST from LTT to MAO consuming a torturous 12 hours! From news reports, I was expecting to see a Shatabdi-level train ... instead we get this :-( Wonder who will be brave enough to sit in a DD coach for 12 hours.

I have already travelled. We had night travelling from Mumbai to Goa. Agree that NH 17 is risky, but drivers manage it well.
Ps We all friends wake up after every 15-20 minitus not because we had a fear of route but to see beauty if road in Night & to see how driver drives at night on such route. We hardly see 1-2 cars in one hour.

after mangaon traffic decreases+its freaking impossible to drive in night on this road.
try driving in dark here, you'll be blinded by incoming light of cars and trucks+some stretches of this road aren't "friendly".
hence people avoid driving in dark.
and while the road has some (actually lots of) beautiful stretches, i'd take the coastal highway (not exactly that frankly speaking) over this.
