From Bullock Cart To High Speed Bullet Trains...Now What?Our progress has been such that since our ancient times we took thousands of years to in order to reach to the age of four wheelers. Now in less then two centuries we have been facilitated with the high speed bullet trains.
Our country would have really struggled if the bullock cart had not been invented. All through the 40s to the 60s the bullock cart remained extremely important for the means of transportation. Although the steel body vehicle were already on road but for the common people still not affordable. The importance of bullock cart was such that owning their own personal bullock cart was every farmer's dream. We can still find the bullock cart today, though it has lost the one time glory of importance that it had.
During the aftermath of the bullock cart, we observe different phases of fast mode of transportation. The Hindustan Ambassador ruled the roads of India for nearly six decades. Then, the only car that truly gave any competition to Ambassador was Premier Padmini from Fiat. When & after 1970's, a lot of the people in the country started undertaking cross country travel then the Indian railways comes into the picture. The Rajdhani and the Shatabdi, the fastest trains in India till now. Would be good to know that during 1853 the first train ran from Mumbai to Thane.
During late eighties, when few got extra bucks in their pockets, that is where the Bajaj Scooter came in which could be remembered as the most extensively used two wheeler so far.
As the roads becoming more jam packed then the Delhi Metro truly is an improvement to the latest of the smooth ride which can also be evident in other metro cities like the Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Pune & Ahmadabad..
In continuation, that in another two years we will be witnessing India's first Bullet Train running from Mumbai to Ahmadabad.
What else afterwards?
