The crumbling infrastructure supporting Mumbai’s local train network has been a talking point for long; corporate India leader Harsh Goenka and Indian cinema legend Amitabh Bachchan brought it back into focus after tweeting a video of passengers trying to enter a Mumbai local train as they put their lives in danger.
