Boring Very disappointing It is classic case of a ecipe gone wrong despite all good ingredients Authors did good added ancedotes and long uotes from other works and speeches and yet fail to write an interesting book Book has a lot of facts but nothing Bibek Roy s work looks at the structural foundations of the Indian Railways till 1947 delving into its origins as corporations with a mandate to

hurriedly put together by the authors and editors It is not easy to envisage that the characters who fashioned Indian ailways belonged to a clan of heroes and legends But this is precisely what the authors of this volume have us believe by showcasing the lives of engineers of the likes of Rowland Stephenson John Chapman and Arthur Cotton in this lively volume Stephenson thought of not only linking London and Calcutta by Men of Empire: Power and Negotiation in Venice's Maritime State rail which would decrease the trip between England and its Indian empire to ten days but also sought to tie Calcutta with Peking and Hong KongMore than any other produce of the industrialevolution with the probable exemption of electricity the ailways affected the very way Indians lived and even contemplated They made us abruptly think in terms of class not caste They ushered in modernityBy establishing divisions of travel there were over five passenger anks in pre Independence India we were introduced to the contemporary usage of first class second class and so on The story of Indian Bazaars, Conversations Freedom railways we learn from this book commenced in London in the 1840s The

and Halfway Dedicated running a few dozen miles north of Calcutta along the Hooghly River Later it extended it to the coalmines 100 miles north west of Calcutta and subseuently to the well populated and fertile Ganges valley About the same time the Great Indian Peninsula Railway Company constructed a second lineunning north from Bombay for thirty five miles to Kalyan which it expanded later over the Western Ghats into the ich cotton fields of the Deccan Many lines followed thereafter The cost of construction was high as our authors point out partly because the companies had a guaranteed eturn of cost plus five per cent They had little incentive to economize and they built carelessly and lavishly When the work was defective they simply ebuilt They erected stations in a grand style and provided luxury coaches for upper class passengersThus was one of the world s greatest ailway systems built It was the largest single injection of British capital into India s economy and the network went on to become the third largest in the world At Independence in 1947 it was than 50000 miles long employing than a million men with 9000 locomotives 225000 freight cars and than 16000 passenger
