INDIAs FIRST INTERNATIONAL TRAIN SERVICE

The network of Indian Railways has spread to every corner of the country. Hence train travel is opted for to travel across the country at a low cost. That's why we opt for a plane to go out of the country. But now Indian Railways has given the good news for the passengers. According to this, the first international train service will be started by Indian Railways. International train service will be started soon between India and Bhutan. This train will run from India's Assam to the neighboring country. This train is being started with the aim of improving tourism between the two countries. This potential railway connection is also expected to significantly enhance trade and tourism ties between the two neighboring countries. India's Foreign Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar gave information in this regard. He also said that we are looking forward to welcoming the Bhutanese railway passengers. Jaishankar has also focused on border infrastructure, including the border with China, in the last nine years. Dr. S. Jaishankar emphasized that the Modi government has given priority to the development of border areas with the aim of facilitating seamless trade and connectivity. One of the major initiatives discussed was the proposed railway link from Gelphu to Kokrajhar, which lies on the Assam-Bhutan border. Additionally, the Minister addressed the challenges posed by the internal situation in Myanmar, which has affected various infrastructure projects including the Trilateral Highway Initiative involving India, Myanmar, and Thailand. The Trilateral Highway Project is envisioned as a key driver of regional connectivity. Jaishankar said the turmoil in Myanmar has created hurdles in ongoing infrastructure efforts, especially the section of the Trilateral Highway that is under construction, along with the construction of 69 bridges.The survey has been completed in April 2023 to start the construction of the railway line between India and Bhutan. As Bhutan Live reports, the railway line will connect Gelephu in Bhutan and Kokrajhar in Assam, India. The construction of this 57 km long rail link is expected to be completed by 2026. Funds for this will be made available by the Government of India. It was told that the train on this route will be operated by the North East Frontier (NF) Railway. Once completed, it will be the first railway connection between India and Bhutan and is expected to be completed by 2026. In April this year, Bhutan's Foreign Minister Dr. Tandi Dorji said that the Bhutanese government would first work on this project and then consider adding other areas such as Samtse, Phuentsholing, Nganglam, and Samdrupjongkhar. Earlier, Bhutan Live had said in a report that the survey to start the construction of the railway link between India and Bhutan was completed in April 2023 and the railway link will connect Gelephu in Bhutan and Kokrajhar in Assam, India. This step can contribute significantly to the economic development of the North Eastern states of India and West Bengal. It remains to be seen how these initiatives will pan out and contribute to the overall socio-economic scenario of the region.

Women, men, and children are often seen walking together in the parks in the morning or evening. But before entering any park in Delhi, do check once whether men are allowed in that park. Because now 'Pink Parks' are being built in Delhi keeping in mind the safety of women. According to the statement, the plan envisages the development of 17 parks in the Central Zone, 10 parks each in the South Zone and Karol Bagh Zone, 5 parks in the City SP Zone, 22 parks in Shahdara North Zone, 13 parks in Shahdara South Zone, 6 parks in Narela Zone, 28 parks in Rohini Zone, 6 parks in the West Zone, 17 parks in Najafgarh Zone, 18 parks in Keshav Puram Zone, and 5 parks in the Civil Zone.Yes, there are about 15,000 parks in Delhi under MCD, out of which some parks will be selected and converted into pink parks in which men will not be allowed to enter. Women will be able to roam in these parks with their children. Special arrangements will also be made for children in the parks. Questions have often been raised regarding the safety of women in Delhi. In such a situation, keeping women in mind, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has decided to make some parks where only women and children can roam. Men will not be allowed to enter these parks. The park will be designed keeping in mind the convenience of women. Special care will also be taken to ensure that the accompanying children do not get bored.

There are about 15,000 parks under MCD, out of which there are plans to convert some parks into 'Pink Parks'. However, this is not the first time that a park is being designed exclusively for women. Years ago, Zenana Park and Parda Park existed in Delhi, where only women could enter. According to the reports, the concept of developing special spaces for women in the city, such as parks, dates back to the 19th century. Parda Bagh, located on Netaji Subhash Marg in the Daryaganj area, was the city's first zenana (for women) park. The entrance to Parda Bagh was guarded by two tall strong Pathan women and children above the age of nine were not allowed to enter it. It was an open space where women could walk freely and move around without worrying about other people. The park was also used by women active in the freedom struggle to hold meetings. In 2019, the Shahjahanabad Redevelopment Corporation (SRDC) decided to revive Zanana Park as a part of the Jama Masjid Complex redevelopment plan, but the project was never implemented. It is expected that now with this scheme women will be able to get a special space for them.
