For long (and even today) India's socialist planners were afraid of urbanization and did nothing much in the urban areas. At least today some attention is being paid to urban areas.

I appreciate the insight suncity. Mass transport is a better alternative to the jam packed roads with all the vehicles wasting fuel and spewing pollution.

btw, the last set of night pics looks like couples night out.
