    Yes, the question of comfort and saving on time is a big boon, when the bullet trains become a reality. I have also read that the Railways have already started working on speeds of trains in the Chennai to Bangalore track. This is a really very good thing, and it does serve the purpose, as the travel time is likely to reduced substantially. I think the present Central Government is on the right track. The FDI route should also be encouraged.

    We need bullet trains, aren't we travelling by air. If we travel from one place to another and it takes around 36 hrs or more isn't it better to have bullet trains, which can help us travel fast.

    At present costs 600 kms Ahmedabad to Mumbai bullet train is projected to cost Rs 60,000 crores, Rs 100crores per km. The fixed cost for such set up can be at least 30 to 35 % ie Rs 18000 to Rs 21,000 crores ,  say Rs 20,000 crores. Per day recovery comes to Rs 55 cr. plus recovery for variable costs of say Rs X crores. Thus the tickets for such trains will have to be very very high. It is this reason why many advanced nations in Europe and USA are not having bullet trains. The speed of existing trains should be increased at lesser expenditures that will be far more economical and benefits will be widespread. But I agree Bullet trains have to come in India looking to the distances and economic development.

    Bullet trains are signs of modern civilization, without speed nothing matters, even in internet we want 3g, 4g and manygs so why not hike in speed of trains.

    A good example that has driven home the point.

    Yes, Speed is what that counts in this jet age. The days of doing things in a leisurely way are gone.

    The views are very valid.  Yes, the politicians will try to spoil things, but am sure that our Prime Minister will ensure that the bullet trains are indeed bullet trains.  There will be no compromise, and this is exactly what he perhaps had when he first started talking about bullet trains.  Another thing, increasing the speed of existing trains is also going on and this is a really welcome step. 

    After the Chennai  to Bangalore line, the Railways, one is told, are keen on the Chennai to Coimbatore line, which has a huge traffic at all times.

    So, things have started moving.

    Things will certainly move. Because the navigator of the ship, Modi, is a man of action. He will not sleep nor he allows his crew to sleep till the work is done to his satisfaction.
