Weaving a nation together
Indian Railways, which had a modest beginning in 1853,
has since then been an integral part of the nation
— a network that has held together a population of one billion.
A self-propelled social welfare system
that has become the lifeline of a nation,
Indian Railways has woven a sub-continent together
and brought to life the concept of a united India.
