    It is Bullet train. U are a traitor if you disagree. Go to Pakistan :-)
    We are world of propaganda. Nobody realizes that most important things for masses (good Govt schools/colleges/clinics/Hospitals), free medicines,edical-tests, jobs are completely ignored by state/center Govt.
    No society can progress without these basic things because only a healthy, educated society can do innovation and progress. These basic things made developed countries what they are. .. Its not that Christian God is more powerful that Hindu God that US, Europe progressed more.

    Of course it is not a bullet train, but to be honest it is also not merely "a normal train which has been renovated with new amenities for better passenger experience". This is the first time the Indian Railways is running a fully air conditioned trainset (or an electric multiple unit) on a long distance route, and it is also currently the train with the highest recorded speed on the IR network (it is being run at 130 kmph though it has been tested till 180 kmph, because the Maximum Permissible Speed of the Delhi - Varanasi mainline route is 130 kmph only). Also, this is not a one-off - other Train 18s are being manufactured and they will gradually replace the Shatabdi express trains.
