Analysis Rail Budget 2008

This year Rail Budget will be remembered for many years as a popular Rail budget due to large numbers of incentives offered to general public. This year Lalu Yadav, our respected Railway Minister presented a popular budget considering the fact of coming ten states and national elections. With this Rail budget, Lalu Yadav has given 5%, 3%, 4% and 7% cut in rail ticket prices of sleeper, AC III, AC II and AC I respectively.

Lalu Yadav also announced introduction of 10 new Garib Raths and 53 trains. For reducing the burden of rising petrol and diesel prices on people, Lalu Yadav also reduced the freight charges on diesel and petrol by 5%. There are also some other good incentives in this railway budget 2008 like introduction of 50% concession to people suffering from AIDS and free season tickets for girl students till graduation.

The major attraction of this Railway budget could be massive introduction of PPP (Public-private-partnership) which will help Railway in earning around extra 100000 crore rupees. Lalu Yadav also presented vision 2025, a document prepared to develop Indian Railways in next 17 years. Good news for the Railway passengers is that they will soon be able to use internet while travelling in super fast trains like Rajdhani. Railways will also increase the number of automatic tickets machines to more than double in near future.

In coming years, people will also be able to book rail tickets with the help of their mobile phones. Overall, this is a very attractive budget and we can hope that this budget will benefit the people of India. However, still Indian railways need lot of improvement in infrastructure and functioning as early as possible, then just decreasing train fares and increasing number of trains.

Punjab Assembly Election 2022 (Toughest Elections Ever)

 On 20th Feb 2022, all people of Punjab will vote for new government because the tenure of present government is going to end soon. The total assembly seats in Punjab is 117 and any political party or alliance needs 58 seats to form the next government in Punjab. Mostly, the state of Punjab has remained a fight between two political parties or groups. For the last few years, the fight in Punjab has remained between Congress and Akali Dal-BJP alliance. However, this time due to farmer agitation, Akali Dal has pulled out from the 25 years old with BJP. This alliance saw many many big victories and they ruled Punjab multiple times. This time, Akali Dal has moved to Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) to compensate for the vote loss while BJP has gone to the alliance with Amrinder Singh's People Lok Congress, Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt).  Aam Admi Party was the new entry into Punjab in 2017 that become the second largest political party after Congress in Punjab.

How it is to be free like a bird?

When ever I saw birds in the sky, I always wander why we are not free like them. We are most advances species on the earth but when comes to the freedom point we have least. Our most of the life is determined by others, directly or indirectly. A bird does not need anyone’s permission before flying. He has no direction to chose. His only aim is the search of food. He doesn’t have very big dreams. Bird’s lives life in today. Unlike them we are more burdened by the outcomes of tomorrow and in this way we spoil our present also. People go on doing hard work for securing their future. However some of them are never able to see this future. In childhood we work as par our parents and try to fulfill their dreams. In adulthood we are burdened by the family and children. On the reverse birds allows their children to be self sufficient and free them to choose their own directions. The bird’s does not have to choose any religion to follow and they are not guided by any god. They live truly in nat
