Re: Indian Railways Thread (Dec 2015)

They need to upgrade all services over a period of 20 years e.g. T-18 instead of LHB Shatabdi, Mumbai AC local, LHB rakes instead of ICF rakes etc. That will automatically do away with a lot of unviable things that the IR does and makes losses on.

Govt will own the infra and charge private operators for running the trains. It is going to raise ticket prices but Indians should decide whether they want cheap socialist...

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

It will be good to have timing records in the various races in athletics and swimming for both under-17 and under-21 for comparative purposes. Also they should include cycling at some point. It will help built velodromes which we have very few.

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

Only 2 players in this team are good. Sunil Chetri, Sandesh Jhingan. We need to find better players. Also energy level in this match was low. Suggests that fitness at this level is still low in that they are not sustained in a tournament.

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

India lost. Out of AFC cup. I think they played a good defensive match today but there was no attack. I think it is psychological specially after loosing a winning match against UAE and with more exposure and better players things can improve.
