Learn from China
by t prasad (View MyPage) on Jun 21, 2010 04:42 PM
As per the Railways, there nothing for us to learn from China. Here we too have developed a lot in Railways, we have around 65,000 Kms of railway tracks laid across the country. Our main problem is the internal fighting. all our opposition parties will always fight for the wrong cause. Our people in India burns the trains to erk out their anger in general. We have anti-social elements who are ruling the Govt. in some parts. We have multi dimensional problem like the Naxals, Terrorists, Train Robberies etc.
In comparasion to India, chinese do not have this kind of problem. They are run by the communists. They do not have an opposition and their punishments are very severe in nature, that makes the people to think before vandilising the property. In india, we teach our small kids right from going to school to the professional course, how to take out our anger in the public damages.
I am if china were to be in our position, they could never have developed as they have done. We must be provide of our nation rather than comparing ourselves to Chines or for that matter to any country in the Wordl. Our's is a rich culture, that is not to be found in any part of the World. We are the ones, who have passed on our knowledge to the neghbours in our golden days. Let's not forget our past.

if we had to travel between mumbai and bangalore by these chinese trains then the travelling time would have been around 5 to 6 hrs and today it is taking 24 hrs ... the problem is railway is always taken care by either minister of bihar or bengal who have done nothin for there own ppl... i am not blaming the ppl but the politicians...
Indians respect each other

woh! so beautiful, clean and neat and our Mumbai Railways. See their Platforms so clean. How the cleanliness is maintained. The Railway Minister can call up for vacancies for poor people who can earn good income as well as help Indian railway to keep clean the platforms and trains too. We need to compare and try to improve ourselves and try to get ahead of China. First every Indian need to respect each and every Indian. How chinesh care for every chinesh like American.
SAVE RAILWAYS SAVE THE NATION

Transport and communication are the nerves of an economy.India is no exception .If the govt is serious in improving in our economy it must elevate our railways on par with the railways of developed countries .The entire railway track must be electrified to bring the cost of operation and also railway tracks should be multiplied then it can easily speed up and save the time of travel. It will improve the economy and also bring down the inflation.Track stability is also weak in India due to poor maintenance.These are the major factors for the slow running of trains.Electrification will reduce the smoke pollution and save a lot of foreign exchange due to saving in consumption of diesel.

Guys, please stop comparing INDIA and CHINA! CHINA is way ahead of INDIA in all the fields. The Indian Politician is only interested to save their seat for the 5 years and make as much money as possible in that time, nothing else.
Chinese Politicians are thinking way ahead and marching ahead according to their plans. They will be on the top within a short span.

We appraise our railway ministers for not raising the railway fares for passengers being a frequent traveller iam happy. But we are trailing in the railway sector. Though we speak, prepare separate railway budget Our politician show a very less interest in R & D and improving the infrastructure of railways. Our India has lot of reources, ideas everything except initiative to achieve which made us to trail china.
It seems to be a dream for India

Chinees are very hard worker, sincere and devoted people. When the whole world was saying that it is impossible to connect the Lhasa (Capital of Tibet) with rail network, they took it as a challenge and made it possible. So far as India is conceren, there is correption in Everywhere. Railway is also fully involved in it right from top to bottom. We just saw that Railway Selection Committee Chairman suspended couple of day back. so how can we dream for all that.

Please do not talk about hard working attitude. Hard workers are there all around the world. The main and only difference between these two nations is China is a People's Republic and India has a 3rd Rated Government by 3rd Rate People for the 3rd Rated People.
China's amazing railway
by Ajit Birdi (View MyPage) on Jun 21, 2010 04:06 PM
To make railways or any other system as good as China,France,German,UK,USA etc.
The very first thing to do is to arrest all MPs and close their Swiss accounts recover all the ill gotten cash.
the next thing to do is to cut hands of any one who tries to bribe or take bribe especially in government.
With few people walkig minus a hand (just like in saudi arabia) others will soon get the message.
Only then perhaps only then India might progress forward like china and others are doing.
OTHERWISE KEEP DROOLING ON SOME ONE ELSE'S SUCCESS.
UNTIL THEN INDIA WILL KEEP GOING ONE STEP FORWARD AND TWO STEPS BACKWARDS.
Railways???is only the government responsible
by ANAND BAJPAI (View MyPage) on Jun 21, 2010 04:02 PM
True with lot of people in the forum saying Why to creep on china's growth?There is a basic difference between China and India,one-They haave a definite policy of country's growth and we have politicsinlieu of that.Can u imagine what will happen if we place our legs in anyone others shoe.It aches and the pain is only felt by the person wearing it.We are wearing the wrong shoes.
Can any of the railway minister of the recent past tell anything about railways,its problems ,the strategies for growth.True every country has its growth procedure and ways.But at least railway authirities the governing body should treat every passengr like its customer even if you see the que on enquiry counter and if somebody asks second time for his train railway people deal him sobadly.At least some sophistication can be learnt.
I happened to be there at station waiting foe a train after 15 min.of delay from set time i went on toenquiry to ask the postion they said it's running right time.OOOOOOps 15 min.after scheduled departure and still right time.It happens only in india Great.Can we the common people come together to help government improve this.Lets play our role if yes there is no limit to growth and improvement.Lets join hands friends...

I travelled Gungzhou to Kunming by rail.From sea level GZ to Kuming 1890 m above sea level
the rout is amazing.How many tunnels have we
crossed,half the distance pases hills and almost every ten to 15 min. we travel thru a tunnel.At every station the cabin attendent locked the toilet.The dining car has a
bar. Travel comfortably and safely that is
China rail.Enjoy a train ride in China to know
what is a travel by train!
Kunming is at 1890m
I often travel thru these bullet trains
by om shanti (View MyPage) on Jun 21, 2010 03:59 PM | Hide replies
Normally its time saving and pleasant to travel thru bullet trains which travels at a top speed of 242 km/hr from Shenyang to Beijing. Now,a maglev(magnetically levitated)train line is being constructed from Harbin to Dalian,the top speed will be 550 km /hr.The project is slated to be completed in 2011.With such long distant trains which run at great speed Chinese people are able to save lot of time and having the opportunity to enjoy world class travelling. Similar maglev train also connects SHANGHAI PUDONG airport to Shanghai city.
Seeing the local trains in India,people in developed countries will be horrified.In such countries,nobody can hang on the footboard and travel,nor does the doors remain open in any train !
In China,one can enter the platform only if he has a ticket,just 10 minutes before boarding. Toilets are kept locked in train stations,these are opened only when the train leaves the station.
Almost all trains are Air conditioned.No body can loiter in the railway platform except for boarding.In China train and bus boarding is also like plane boarding.Extra people or vendors or beggars cannot roam around in platforms.So,people's life is safe and railway cleanliness is excellent in China...

India will not be able to match China in Development even in 50 years because we are a democracy! Here in India each and every decision is taken on the basis of how many votes will be lost and gained by taking a decision. As long as politicians want to stick to power by means of hook or crook at the cost of development, no way we can surge ahead!

When you say china railways one of the best in the world, so many countries behind china including developed countries. Don't worry, they have money, they can do it, for everything no need to crib and critcise ourselves. We have our own pace in developement, no development can be monotonous, there will be some dead end.

by iota (View MyPage) on Jun 21, 2010 03:17 PM
because Indian Railways is very advanced.
1. Railway Minister with LOUD MOUTH disease.(does china even have a railway minister?)
2. Indian Railways is a Employment Bureau for Unemployed. It is FOREMOST for the benefit of its own Employees. Passengers and Railway are Incidental (Just like Police, Govt. Steel Plants, Judiciary - all fast asleep).
3. Except for Konkan Railways (recently) - almost NO MAJOR tracks have been laid in India after independence. We are still running on British Era Infrastructure.
4. In India if you steal, take bribes, use caste games - YOU WILL BE PROMOTED. In China, you will be SHOT DEAD.
