Indian Railways



India loves its trains, nay, needs its trains. The yearly rail budget report is headline grabbing news across the country, and the rail ministry is an important portfolio for any government minister to line her pockets. But there are some fascinating aspects from the report including the fact Indian Railways makes a profit, there is (finally) going to be a cross border link between Agartarla and the linking (really needed) of Sealdah and Howrah stations in Kolkata.

Something for the British politicians to take note too. No hikes in the fares!

Funny to read in the newspaper screenshot that kids of journalists get to travel for free. Sure way to swing newspaper articles in your favour!
