MY VIEW: I Did Not Think a Swachh Bharat Was Possible. These 12 Tweets Changed My Mind.

A reader shares tweets of Indian railway stations (and trains) that left him speechless.

Several Governments came and went. They all spent loads of money on cleaning India. But, sadly, nothing positive happened. So I decided that I would not believe any of these governments or their policy announcements unless there was actual change, and I was able to witness it.

And then came in our new Minister of Railways, Mr. Suresh Prabhu. He took the task of cleaning the Indian Railways really very seriously. Here are some images of trains and railway stations posted on Twitter by people like me, who were delighted by how clean they were.

I guess these pictures speak volumes. I have never seen such shining floors in any station in India all my life. I hope this becomes a reality in every place in India very soon.
