#LeaveMetroAlone

There is a wide gap yet between the digital and the physical world. On ground, the inequities that separate have’s and have-not’s  stare you in your face. Yes, the mobile revolution has made access to communication even but the odds of managing a day-to-day life go well beyond merely having the luxury of owning a mobile phone. Twenty-five years  of economic reforms have made an obvious differences but the intended last mile connectivity on development yet eludes the nation. The rising sky-scrappers across metros present a stark contrast with mud slums surrounding the world of concrete. One notable exception that ushered in enduring equality is the Delhi Metro. In one ride it successfully broke all class barriers. Setting a unique and rare democratic tradition, Delhi Metro deserves to be left alone. Let ‘premium’ passengers take premium transport.
