Well..Actually it is getting more than a face lift. When you enter the Station complex , you will be greeted by vintage Steam engine. And the old vintage Station building is getting a face lift with new neon lights and new paint.

But with the station complex, the old adage ” Beauty is only skin deep” does not apply. In addition to the above mentioned changes, the platforms are getting a new look also. Check out the photos below.

The subways were clean as well. They were being cleaned with water (What!! Where are they getting water for this !) when I walked in. With the advent of drag bags , I guess the requirement for a porter to carry heavy luggage is reduced. So I actually saw couple of them bargaining for Rs 20 – Rs 30 instead of starting from Rs.50.

But the next photo   shows that the planning could have been little better. It is a monumental effort to walk in the mixture of sand and concrete. But hopefully this is completed now.

The city is bustling ……………………
