State chief secretary and chairman of Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC), SC Choudhary, on Thursday said Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA) would commission a survey on the Gurgaon-ManesarBawal metro rail project this September. The 108-kilometrelong project costing Rs. 27,411 crore would be completed in four years.

At a review meeting of the board of directors, Choudhary said a detailed report of this project was being prepared. The project would be jointly completed by the Delhi - Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC) and the HMRTC. Nearly 465 acres had been identified and notified for the project.

Choudhary said Japan would provide a loan of Rs. 23,217 crore at the rate of 0.5 % for this project and the remaining amount of Rs. 4,193 crore would be shared by the DMICDC and the HMRTC. Nearly 50 metro stations would be constructed under the project.

The HMRTC is also commissioning a number of projects for metro extension, including extension of Delhi Metro up to YMCA Chowk in Faridabad, which would be completed by end of September.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
