(Mario Miranda’s cartoon for Konkan Railway)
The first line of the online booking page of Konkan Railway reads as follows:
“Internet booking is available ONLY to Indians, Foreign nationals and NRIs holding a valid passport.”
Clearly Martians and other riff-raff Aliens cannot hope to hoodwink the Konkan Railway bureaucracy. Equally, NRIs (who are obviously neither Indians nor Foreign Nationals) have to watch their step. I sleep well in the knowledge that our country and our national treasures are well protected, if not by everyone, atleast by the good folks at Konkan Railway.
