They say that nothing's sacred in comedy, and that's all well and good. You could say the same thing about India though, at least when it comes to progress, and that's well... not very good. Every time we take one step forwards, we shoot ourselves in the toes and topple a 100 feet back. I am, of course, talking about the recent Tejas Express debacle, and how it's indicative of a much wider problem in the country.
To get you up to speed, the Tejas Express is India's first high-speed train, and it was supposed to ply between Mumbai and Goa. It's average speed is said to be 130 kmph. It's equipped with the latest hi-tech steez, like on-board infotainment, Wi-Fi, USB
...
more...
charging ports, LED TVs at the back of the seats and coffee-vending machines. Considering the state of most trains in India, this 'loco'motive (pardon the pun) has been generating a lot of hype.
And as with all good things put in the public space in India, it got shit on before it even made its maiden voyage from the Bay to Goa. A day before it was supposed to make the journey, it arrived in Mumbai from Delhi, and the public was saddened, but probably not surprised, that people had vandalised it. Some bored folks probably threw rocks and damaged the glass on the windows of the train, feeling a sense of pointless achievement in the whole thing.
Now, I'm all for a bit of fun and mischief, but this kinda shit really pisses me off. It's a service for the people that you're destroying, and it's not exactly a one-off incident either. Our country has a long history of fucking up good things just because it's new and it looks pretty. A new coat of paint on a wall? A beautiful piece of public artwork? Let's cover it in a shiny sheen of paan thook.
Then there was the Coldplay concert in India, what was it called? Global Citizen. That's the one. The message was one of togetherness and progress and all that jazz. How'd it end? With a million kilos of trash all across the grounds. The 'million kilos' might be a ballpark figure, but we sure trashed the crap out of that place.
Hell, we even destroy mechanisms put in place to get rid of trash. Like this story.
Some ch*ts actually damaged bottle crushers installed in a Mumbai railway station. What the fuck. You have to be a special kind of stupid to actually want your city to be even dirtier than it already is. Cheap thrills aren't exactly cheap if the entire country has to pay the price. Even when the Mumbai metro started, there was an immediate dispute over fares, as well as fights and cases of vandalism after overcrowding led to people not being allowed in.
Just to drive the point home, here's another example. Metallica, gods of metal and heroes to a large number of music aficionados in the country, were supposed to play in Delhi a few years ago. Everything was in place, the stage was set, people were excited. And when we get excited, we obviously end up breaking shit. The crowd, almost 25,000 in number, got rowdy, destroyed the barricades despite repeated pleas from promoters to back off, and finally, the entire gig had to be canned before it even began. We fucked ourselves.
It really makes you wonder, do we deserve anything nice? What's the point, when some asshole is obviously going to bend, break and spit on not just the thing, but our hope for development itself as a whole. We can't be so stupid about our own condition. I mean it's easy, just follow one rule - If someone gives you something nice, don't fucking ruin it.

Crap article... just because some ruffians from the trackside fields threw stones at this train's window, why should Indian Train Passengers be denied of luxury trains? I also can't understand that why do these media people fail to understand that 130 Kmph can be the Maximum Permissible Speed and NOT an Average Speed for any Indian AC train! :-p

After a comfortable trip to Goa, you could soon board the high-speed Tejas Express to travel from Mumbai to Ahmedabad.
While flagging off the first Tejas Express train between Mumbai and Karmali station in Goa on Monday, railway minister Suresh Prabhu announced the introduction of the new service between Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
“Very soon Tejas express will start running on Mumbai -Ahmedabad route. It will be launched in some other states as well,”said Prabhu, adding that the rail travel experience in India will be redefined with the introduction of Tejas .

the railways had planned to introduce the service on the crowded Mumbai-Surat route.
Tejas Express flagged off: Know everything about Mumbai-Goa high-speed train
Tejas Express housefull for first ride from Mumbai, bookings full till May 24, plan your Goa trip now
According to western railway officials, the plan was dropped as the train will cover the distance between the two cities in less than six hours and will be out of use for a long time.
Currently, Mumbai and Ahmedabad are connected via Shatabdi express and double-decker express trains.
Railway officials are hopeful of a good response, as businessmen and merchants might prefer travelling on the ultra-luxury premium train which is capable of running at a speed of 200kmph.
Along with WiFi, GPS and CCTV, the Tejas Express has several unique amenities such as automatic doors, secured gangway, infotainment screen for each passenger, reading lights for each seat, vacuum bio-toilets, e-leather cover seats and touch free taps in toilets.
The train also has tea- and coffee-vending machines, along with local cuisine in catering service and staffers in local attire of Goa.

* This is a logical step, i.e. announcement of BCT-ADI Tejas, because the earlier announced BCT-ST was expected to be extended to ADI sooner or later. If the extension comes with the introduction of this train is much better.
* BCT-ST-ADI shall be the first route for 300kmph+ Bullet trains, which are the ultimate trains for the business class travellers. Tejas is just a step from current premium business class train (Shatabdi) towards the Bullet trains.

Cities of Chhatisgarh are 1000-1500 kms away from Mumbai and reserved accomodation is required, so fully unreserved Antyodaya is not much useful.
The demand for BSP-Mumbai train is genuine as many a times People of Chhatisgarh are forced to board Duronto, Vidarbha, Sewagram express from NGP/G as other trains coming from HWH/BBS/HTE runs packed round the year. There are many trains from HWH and new train should be started from intermediate stations. It would be better if the proposed train starts from Korba instead of BSP as Korba have no direct connectivity to Mumbai. Similar is the case with connectivity of Pune with Chhatisgarh.

For east bound trains people are demanding Gondia-HWH train. But In my view HWH-R-G-NGP/Itwari could be a better option than HWH-G because NGP which is very well connected to Mumbai/Pune/KOP too need better connectivity for HWH.

Two good things with Tejas which shall add to the :
(1) No Flexifare- It was suspected that Tejas fares shall be subjected to Humsafar Flexifare structure, but no Flexifare is a relief. Except for first 20% seats of Shatabdi, rest 80% people pay more in Shatabdi, for a journey less Luxurious than the journey of Tejas.
(2) Giving option for catering is a welcome relief. So a person can travel Mum-Goa in ACC of Tejas with 1185/- which is not too high and can have food of choice on additional payment.

तेजस 200 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा की रफ्तार से दौड़ सकती है, हालांकि Tracks की मौजूदा हालत में इसकी औसत रफ्तार 130 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा ही रहेगी. तेजस के Coaches चेन्नई और कपूरथला की Coach Factories में मेक इन इंडिया कार्यक्रम के तहत तैयार किए गए हैं. यानी इस ट्रेन में मिलने वाली सुविधाएं 100 प्रतिशत स्वदेशी हैं.
तेजस के एक कोच को तैयार करने में लगभग 3 करोड़ 20 लाख रुपये का खर्च आया है. ये भारत की लंबी दूरी की पहली ऐसी Train है, जिसमें Automatic दरवाज़े लगे हुए हैं. इसके अलावा इस Train में यात्रियों के मनोरंजन के लिए हर सीट पर LCD Screens भी लगाई गई हैं. इस ट्रेन में सफर के दौरान Wi-fi की सुविधा भी

तेजस को भारत की पहली Super Luxury Train कहा जा रहा है. इस Train में यात्रियों के लिए 4 तरह का किराया रखा गया है. इस ट्रेन का किराया सामान्य शताब्दी ट्रेन से करीब 20 प्रतिशत ज़्यादा है और हवाई जहाज़ से कम है. तेजस फिलहाल मुंबई गोवा रूट पर चल रही है औऱ जल्द ही इसे दिल्ली से चंडीगढ़ और दिल्ली से लखनऊ के रूट पर भी चलाया जाएगा.
A1 Category के Stations की बात करें तो आंध्र प्रदेश का विशाखापट्टणम रेलवे स्टेशन, देश का सबसे स्वच्छ स्टेशन है. इस लिस्ट में तेलंगाना का सिकंदराबाद रेलवे स्टेशन दूसरे नंबर पर, जम्मू तवी तीसरे नंबर पर, आंध्र प्रदेश का विजयवाड़ा चौथे और दिल्ली का आनंद विहार रेलवे स्टेशन पांचवें नंबर पर है. जबकि बिहार का दरभंगा सबसे गंदा रेलवे स्टेशन है. इसके अलावा भोपाल, अंबाला, धनबाद और तिरुवनंतपुरम रेलवे स्टेशन भी देश के सबसे गंदे रेलवे Stations में शामिल हैं. वैसे मुंबई के जिस छत्रपति शिवाजी टर्मिनस से देश की पहली Super Luxury Train को रवाना किया गया है वो A1 Stations की Category में 44वें नंबर पर है. जबकि इसकी Over All Rank 153 है.

Tejas Express, scheduled to flag off Monday afternoon, will come with many modern technologies on board, such as Wi-Fi, infotainment system, LED TVs, CCTV, etc. At top speed of 200kmph, the all-new Tejas Express is faster than Shatabdi Express, and has a graffiti proof body, fire and smoke detection facilities. The doors of all 13 coaches, including the executive coach, are centrally controlled.
"Tomorrow is going to be a historic day for the Indian Railways when Tejas Express, which boasts of ultra-modern amenities like on board infotainment, Wi-Fi, CCTV, fire and smoke detection facilities, tea/coffee vending machine etc. will make its maiden run from Mumbai," D K Sharma, General Manager of the Central Railway, said. Sharma, who inspected the train at the

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai (CSTM) likened Tejas Express with an "aeroplane moving on the ground".
"I would say that traveling by this premium train would provide a better experience than flying in a plane. This train would pass through the lush greenery of the Konkan belt, giving a picturesque view of the seashore, mountains and valleys, which will let you enjoy the journey and not just the destination (Goa)," he said.
When asked about reports that a few miscreants had damaged the windows of the Tejas Express, even before its launch, the official said, "We have taken proper note of it and it is no more an issue now."
Tejas Express route and schedule
Giving the details of the route and schedule of the train, Sharma said it would run between Mumbai and Karmali (Goa) five days a week during non-monsoon period and three days a week during monsoon by halting at Dadar, Thane, Panvel, Ratnagiri and Kudal stations.
"Train No 22119 Superfast Tejas Express will leave CST at 5am every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 24 and arrive at Karmali at 1.30pm the same day.
Train No 22120 Superfast Tejas Express will leave Karmali at 2.30pm on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, starting from May 23 and arrive at the CST at 9pm," he said.
This train will have one executive AC chair car with 56 seating capacity and 12 AC chair cars with 78 seat capacity of each coach, Sharma said.
Tejas Express ticket bookings
CR's Chief Commercial Manager Shailendra Kumar expressed happiness over the "positive response" shown by passengers in booking advance tickets for the train.
Kumar, who accompanied Sharma during the train inspection, added, "The ticket booking started within minutes of its opening this morning and in the first four hours, 207 passengers booked tickets for the AC chair car and 10 for executive AC chair car."
Sharing details of the fares, Kumar said Tejas Express's executive class fare has been fixed at Rs. 2,680 with food and Rs. 2,525 without food, and for AC chair car the fare has been fixed at Rs 1,280 with food and Rs. 1,155 without food.
Kumar also informed that the railways has planned optional onboard catering services.

MUMBAI: The Tejas Express, the first Indian train with an on board infotainment system and assures an aircraft like experience is all set for its maiden run between Mumbai and Karmali railway station in Goa.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will flag off the train on its first journey from Mumbai CST on Monday. The train that sports a bright yellow look has a total 15 LHB coaches, 12 of which are 3x2 chair cars, while one is an executive chair car that has more leg space and a 2x2 seat combination.
All the

seats have separate LCD displays in front of them and a personal light, airflow and caller bell panel above them, very similar to an aircraft. Large windows, elegant design, more leg space and a speed that can go up to 200 kmph are the premium features that make the train around 20 per cent costlier than the Shatabdi express.
"Tejas Express is a semi high speed train having modern on board facilities, enhanced passenger comfort and showcases the future of Train travel in India," divisional railway manager Ravinder Goyal said here on Sunday, as the train was put on display on platform no. 18 of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST). Several passengers and railway staff were seen taking selfies with the new train.
The coaches also have new age automatic sliding doors, modern bio-vacuum toilets, water level indicators, tap sensors, hand dryers, integrated braille displays, WiFi, tea-coffee vending machines, aircraft-like snack tables, CCTV cameras, fire & smoke detection and suppression system.
The IRCTC has also offered local cuisine and a celebrity chef menu, for which passengers will have to shell out about Rs 1000-1500 more than the tickets without catering facility.
The train will make five stops and reach Goa in 7 hours 30 minutes, saving around two hours of travel time. However, the speed restrictions on the Konkan railway line during the monsoon would mean that the train won't be able to achieve its fullest speed potential on the Mumbai-Goa route very soon.
The Tejas train is expected to ply on New Delhi-Chandigarh and Lucknow-Anand Vihar(T) after the Mumbai CST-Karmali route.

* "Flight on wheels" was actually planned way back in 2004, as Madgaon-CSTM Shatabdi with a travel time of just 6 hours. Branding Tejas as "Flight on Wheels", which does about 550km journey in 8.5 hrs journey at an avg speed of just 65 kmph, gives a very poor impression about the standard of IR.
* Tejas cannot be branded as "luxury on wheels" also because much higher benchmark has already been set by the ultimate luxury trains operating on IR network like Palace-on-wheels, Maharaja-Express, Royal-Rajasthan-on-Wheels, Deccan-Odyssy, Golden-Chariot etc
* Tejas

should be branded as luxury business class train (superior to Shatabdi- the current benchmark of premium business class train). It actually is super luxury shatabdi

रेलवे ने बताया था विभिन्न जगहों पर केटरिंग की सुविधा के साथ तेजस एक्सप्रेस की दरें शताब्दी से लगभग 30 फीसदी अधिक हैं। तेजस से सफर करने पर यात्रियों को विभिन्न सुविधाएं जैसे सीट के पीछे एलईडी टीवी कॉफी वेंडिंग मशीन, सीसीटीवी कैमरे और जीपीएस-आधारित सूचना डिस्प्ले मिलेंगी।

including catering charges, in the first AC compartment of Tejas Express is Rs 2,680 while the one in CC compartment is Rs 1,680 per person. The rates are at least three times higher than the basic cost of Jan Shatabadi train that takes a similar route. The price is between Rs 500 and Rs 900, according to the choice of compartments. The rate for the eight-hour journey in the AC double decker Madgaon-Panvel train is Rs 795 for a chair car seat and Rs 1,880 for third AC. The railways had said that the rates for the train would be 30 per cent higher than a Shatabdi — a premium rake catering to different destinations. The Tejas rake includes different facilities, including LED TVs at the back of the seats, coffee vending machines, CCTV cameras and GPS-based information display. “The bookings will start from 8 am on Sunday. As usual, the bookings would close four hours before the journey commences on Monday afternoon,” a CR official said. Vijay A, a commuter, said: “While the rate of a seat in CC compartment is at par with other rakes, the rates for first AC compartment is very high. The higher rates for the tickets must match with the service offered.” The train would be inaugurated at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) on Monday by Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. The Tejas Express is scheduled to leave the station at 3 pm on Monday.
