Something is rotten with some people; they simply cannot tolerate anything that helps build India’s image. Take for example how some unidentified miscreants treated the brand new Tejas Express.
During an empty carriage ride from Kapurthala to Delhi on May 19, some miscreants threw objects that shattered the glass windows of the train.

The wreck was discovered when the train arrived in the national capital on its way to Mumbai.
While the government and nearly every Indian is trying to make the nation proud, some elements are not only committing a crime by destroying public property but also bringing a bad name to the society they are a part of.
This is why Twitterati expressed its anger on such malicious elements:
@ANI_news We need cams in public transports to trace back and teach this national wastes a lesson; it’s a shame.

Built in Kapurthala-based Rail Coach Factory, the Tejas Express will be flagged off by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu from Mumbai. Its first run will be between Mumbai and Karmali in Goa.
Hailed as India’s fastest train, the Tejas will touch 160 km per hour during the journey that will take 7-and-a-half hours.
Meant to run on short distances, the Tejas coaches are chair car with seats that are way more comfortable than what one finds on airlines.

The train boasts of LCD screens on every seat, bio-vacuum toilets, automatic doors, and special catering services besides a host of security-related measures.

The fare for the Executive Class has been fixed at Rs.2,540 without food and Rs.2,940 with food. The Chair Car fare is Rs.1,850 with food and Rs.1,220 without food.
