Lalu's train chugs along

Lately I have become an admirer of our Railways Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav. He has made the antiquated Indian Railways a profitable organisation which even the US could not do in spite of all the federal subsidies. I also laud Yadav's efforts to introduce foods, more suited to Indian conditions and healthier (like lassi, lemonade, etc.) Even his idea about introducing earthen kullards was not all that ridiculous. If implemented a lot of small-scale manufacturers would benefit.

If implemented a lot of small-scale manufacturers would benefit. I fully endorse his European trip. I am sure this trip will further result in improving services in India.

Keep up the good work, Mr Yadav.
