Taj Mahal a beauty and Taj Express a shame 1

Taj Mahal is one of seven wonders of the world. Taj Express is a train which runs between Hazrat Nizamuddin and Jhansi passing through Agra on its way. Like every Indian, I feel proud about Taj Mahal and am quite emotional on this account. I feel hurt whenever I travel by Taj Express as it is one of dirtiest trains of Indian Railways. It is shameful that Taj Express uses the name of Taj Mahal.

Long back, this train was introduced for tourists to visit Taj Mahal. It will start in the morning from New Delhi and will return in the evening, giving full day to the tourists to visit Taj Mahal and other places in and around Agra. It was a good train in those days. Then politics came in and train was extended up to Gwalior. More politics and now the train runs up to Jhansi. It is never on time. It stinks. It is dirty from outside and it is dirty inside.

There is nothing on this train now which can justify its name as Taj Express. Indian Railways should show some respect to Taj Mahal. They should improve the train to make it deserving to have this name, or they should change the name. Naming this train as Taj Express is an insult to Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal is a tribute to beauty and love. This train has no beauty and no love for its passengers.
