DELHI
The Capital Gets Itself An Underworld
Delhi’s netherworld, after four years of frenetic activity and eager anticipation, has finally started throbbing. Last week, the much-awaited first metro rail rolled out of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s Shastri Park depot after it was flagged off, on a test run, by deputy prime minister L.K. Advani. He was joined, among others, by Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit.

After Calcutta—which got its Metro back in the mid-’80s—it’s time at last for Delhi to join the subway league of London, Paris and New York, thanks to the ambitious Rs 12,000-crore Indo-Japanese project.
