Delhi Metro

To those of you who don't have much faith in the ability of the Indian government to deliver public services that are a) clean and well-maintained and b) of international standards, I would recommend that you take a trip on the Delhi Metro. Even I, a self-proclaimed skeptic as far as the performance of the government is concerned, was reasonably impressed. The Delhi Metro is both the above qualities, and it also exceeds expectations. I have been on the Metro in London and Brussels, and let me tell you, Delhi's metro system is no poor cousin. For a country that has a pretty abysmal record in delivering public utilities like healthcare and education, this is a saving grace.
