Can someone please explain why there is an eletric trip shed of NCR at NDLS along with NR?

Also, wouldn't it be better to wall off tracks around Dayabasti and Wazirpur-Azadpur slums, than to keep a PSR and face constant threat of breach on tracks?

I think the location Dayabasti and accompanying station of the same name is notorious for this. The Google Maps reviews are filled with people asking folks not to go there after dusk. I once boarded a passenger from there[during day, of course] and had a chance to see the station and it was the dirtiest thing I have seen till now. Atleast 4 cows/bulls at station entrance and then a giant garbage dump b/w PF #2 and #3.

Slums are notorious for this. Be it Delhi or Bombay or a tier-3 city. Poverty crossed with arrogance and poor upbringing by already overworked parents, it leads to delinquent offspring.

The biggest culprits are the political parties, who, instead of uplifting them, keep them extremely poor and promote this, just for votebank. Also, the 'influencers', who go there to milk views and justify the life on tracks. As sensational it may seem, I don't think many of them are Indian nationals.

They could've walled it off, like Bombay, but seems like either politics is too strong for that, or IR is lazy as always to do that. The slums will only show how 'developed' we're while looking out of a Vande Bharat EC.

People love to go to weird places. I once was going from old Delhi station towards Jama Masjid side[close to where the old shops are for eating :p]. That area, if anyone has been there, is exceptionally dense. Sometimes it feels that the population density will choke you down.

And what do I see in those narrow lanes? White folks touring. Delhi has many historic places, museums and conventional locations to tour. But near so called 'Chor Bazaar'? That is one of the worst experiences one can have. I myself heavily
disliked that area and only been there couple of times.

White folks or foreigners in general love to go to places we won't even set foot in, and then cry about unfair practices and 'racism'. They expect warm welcomes everywhere, as if we're here only to do bidding for our old 'masters'.

I saw a foreigners blog, and he was saying, 'India is racist to black people'. No one was ever disrespectful to him, they just didn't bow down to welcome him, and roaming on unknown bylanes, he was accompanied by some anti-social fellows, and hence the title.

Leave foreigners, we Indians aren't much behind them in doing idiotic things for reels and reach. If you search for Varanasi, half of the reels will show burning bodies at crematoriums. Banaras is much more than that, but hey, we see only crematoriums, and we are shamefully disrespectful enough to picture someone's last rites and their grieving family members.
