Mass Rapid Transit System---goes the actual definition.But given the present state of this system this could be redefined as Most Rejected Train Service.This is justified by the lack of crowds in the stations between Beach and Tiruvanmiyur.

For the fourth time I travelled in this, what the locals call,flying train(parakkum rayil).This one's an amazing transport system that takes just 10 minutes to travel from parrys to mylapore,while a trip to tiruvanmiyur takes 20 minutes.However this transit system hasnt got the response it is supposed to generate.

There is a constant demand for more trains to tiruvanmiyur.The Minister of State for Railways,R.Velu,during his frequent trips to Chennai,keeps announcing more trains but that exists only in paper.Even thenga mandayan (read Laloo yadav)talks of extension of the MRTS line to St.thomas mount budget after budget but once the budget is presented,he gets back to watching music videos like Crazy Frog,in the process of which he forgets budget proposals.

In all,a trip by the MRTS train can be exciting provided you endure the pleasant smell of coovum river and Buckingham Canal,on the way.
