    Its not that the government has NO funds, but the want of addressing the real issues. A fraction of millions gov. spend on ministers, MPs personal benefits would have helped to save a lot of public lives.

    When wil we ever learn. Increase the fine for illegal crossing at railway crossing to Rs.100,000. It may help.

    Thank God (if there is one) as there was no CCTV footage of this horrible crash. It there was all the cheap TV channels will broadcast it repeatedly for days.

    What a sad sight. But why are all these people waiting and hanging around? What a waste of human resources. If they could be of help to any injured we can understand. Not only they are obstructing train travel but road traffic also.
