Indian athletes in Rio Olympics have set new benchmarks for our sporting community - especially for the aspirants who dream of participating in the coveted world games one day.  Two names that will forever shine on in Olympics history include those of Dipa Karmakar and Lalita Babar. While Dipa finished fourth in women's vault gymnastics finals, Babar was placed tenth in women's 3000m steeplechase.
Reuters/Wiki And to honour these Indian Olympians, cricketer Virender Sehwag came up with a solid suggestion that will only encourage our nation's youth to choose sports as a career.  On India's 70th independence day, Sehwag requested PM Narendra Modi and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to have a special plane or train named after the two sportswomen, who made
India prouder than she was before.
Being a sportsperson himself, trust Sehwag to know the importance of rewarding athletes for their relentless pursuit of a medal. And rewarding the two by having a landmark in their name is definitely a step in the right direction.

I responded based on the feedback received for naming a train from RMM or RMM-NDLS new train with Kalam name.
Railways rejected both new train and naming existing train nor Kalam's request of day train between MS & RMM with freezer car.

These are not the names of peoples exactly in some of the cases, like Kavi Guru, Gurudev, Vivek, but however represents Rabindranath Tagore and Narendranath (Swami Vivekananda).
However it is allowed to name Stations, Roads and Bridges on the names of persons.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
