NEW DELHI: A Quora user who wondered whether India "actually" needs a bullet train would not have expected the country's railway minister Piyush Goyal to answer his question.
But answer he did, at length, garnering as many as 33,000 views on the site where questions are asked, answered, edited and organized by Quora's community of users...

 

The question, "Does India actually need a bullet train?" was no doubt a reference to the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail, for which Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe laid the foundation stone in Ahmedabad in September.
 
The project got mixed reactions, with some questioning its necessity+ and others thrilled at the prospect of India having a bullet train.
Minister Goyal thinks it's a great idea, of course. In his detailed reply on Quora - replete with infographs and statistics - Goyal said the Bullet Train project will help the Indian Railways "revolutionise every passenger's journey". And the project, he said, "will help the nation and Railways grow in many ways."
