Imagine having public transport that is so charming and so lovable the tourists come just to ride in it, or to photograph it.
Imagine having public transport so human scaled that when you need new rolling stock you ask the local mechanics and carpenters to make one for you instead of outsourcing it to a corporation on the other side of the planet in exchange for something that's a nightmare to maintain.

Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
