We cry for the development, We pay for the development, but, as unfortunate as it may sound, we don’t value it. We keep on cursing the system of old and poorly maintained trains running on the tracks but we don’t acknowledge that there are some issues with our own attitude.
Tejas Express – India’s first high speed and well-equipped train from Mumbai to Goa had its first trip on Monday. As it returned, there were some shocking things to witness; not from govt’s side but from the side of we the public.
You will be shocked to know that as the train commenced its first ride and came back there were fewer headphones than actual, damaged infotainment screens, litter all over and unflushed toilets. The railway officials are now planning to appeal to passengers to avoid damaging the train.

Trains like Tejas Express are the pride of Indian Railways and Indians as well. Spoiling the pride is not cool at all and one should think thousand times before doing this. If it’s government’s duty to develop our country, we’ve the duty to maintain it. Still if you can’t maintain, don’t spoil it.
