Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe on Thursday lay the foundation stone for India’s first bullet train project in Ahmedabad. In his speech, the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed hope that when he’s back in India in a few years, he would have the good fortune of enjoying the beautiful scenery of India through the windows of the Bullet train. “PM Modi and I will work towards realizing ‘Jai Japan- Jai India’. If we work together nothing is impossible. I wish that when I come here next I come with PM Modi in a Shinkansen,” said Abe.

Well, while the project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai is expected to be completed by 2022, many have taken to social media and start joking about everything from how life will change with people heading out from dry state Gujarat for just a drink to jibes at the expected long queues for just booking a ticket.

          We already have the metro and the malls. Indians who were imagining life in Singapore already tasted these in India. Bullet train experience is a dream for many. Now with bullet train experience, dreams of many Indians will come true. Come on, there are a few millionaires/billionaires ready to burn their money for a space trip. After this last wish, many Indians will have nothing left to experience and be ready for meditation and deep silence. Om Shanthi! :)

            It is an experience every middle class Indian would like to have - to travel in a bullet train. Those who cannot travel abroad and experience a bullet train, here is a chance.
