Article 435.

Article Published in The Gulf Today UAE on 26 Dec 15 (My Article 435)

Wheels of joy

I often wonder about the revolutionary changes in railways. In my earlier days in India, I enjoyed the sound of steam engines when the trains entered the stations. Later, steam engines were replaced by diesel engines and today we have the electric engines.

The duration of travel has been considerably reduced and travelling itself has become more comfortable. 

My friend who had visited Dubai recently was full of praise for the Metro service. “When I got down and I was told that the Metro is operated without a driver, I almost fainted. The stations are also so clean,” he told me. 

“That’s why everyone loves the UAE,” I replied.
