Happy Birthday MMTS

The Multi-Modal Transit System in Hyderabad celebrates its sixth birthday today. It has grown from strength to strength, even though it has been given a step motherly treatment by the higher echelons of the bureaucracy of the Indian Railways.

From a moderate start, today it carries over a few lakh passengers to their destinations in the city in the shortest time possible. Although only 89 services are operated everyday, it is highly successful. If only the proposed Phase 2 and 3 of the project were in place, it would have been an even bigger winner.

Kudos to all the passengers also who have patronised the services !

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘chai biskut with vrij’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)
