India has the world’s largest rail network serving some 13 million daily passengers, and much of its infrastructure needs repair. Accidents are an almost daily occurrence, but the task of improving the system appears to be beyond the reach of mere mortals. According to comments to the Times of India, the government’s railways minister places responsibility for the safety of trains and passengers in the hands of Vishwakarma, the Hindu god of machines. Regardless of who’s in charge, traveling by train remains a good way to move around the country. In the air, security has been increased on Air-India flights to Dubai after officials received credible reports of a hijack threat to the airline on flights between Dubai and India.
