And Mumbai's lifeline is being pulled by an engine !


These photos taken by me at 8:30 am today of a local train running slowly and is being pulled by an engine. This is between the Grant Road and Bombay Central stations on the Western Railway during peak commuter hours and it sums up "The Motormen's Strike' which paralysed Mumbai yesterday and would continue to do so today unless it is called off.

Read reports about the strike which is the biggest since 1974 , here here and here.

Awesome aerial view of the trains and tracks! Gee, how will the office workers get their tiffin lunches on time if the Motormen are on strike?
