New book on Indian Railways-Rajendra B Aklekar
This is Rajendra B Aklekar’s 3rd book centring on Indian railways.
His first two acclaimed books were “Halt Station India” and “India’s Railway Man- A Biography of E.Sreedharan.”
This third volume-“A Short History of Indian Railways”(with a Foreword by Mark Tully)“is a collation of anecdotes from the 1830s to the Bullet Train and Train 18. History woven through anecdotes on how the railways came to be and flourished and the responses it generated in the society. An uncommon experiment of telling history only through anecdotes with a thin narrative!” (Author’s own words!!)
