Clarification from my friend: “This was a news item  in India rail info.com site which normally is authentic.

I had a hat with the railway guy who cribbed and cribbed that he is getting calls from all over India.”
So this is only for Moradabad, NOT all-India.

    The numbers given pertain only to Moradabad Division. I wrote to Railway Ministry and got a clarification which is as follows : “We wish to clarify that under the directions of the MR, Indian Railways have launched one helpline 138 for all travel related issues and 182 for security matters. These helplines are common to the entire network. The intention is to help the passengers and save them from the hassle of remembering many different telephone numbers. The helplines work 24 X 7”. Please correct your blog and inform all your members.

Theatre Review: “Credit Titles” by Bangalore Little Theatre

It was like a rare alignment of the planets: several factors come together to pull me out of my usual Ranga Shankara ambit for watching a play. I had not been to visit Bangalore International Centre, which opened a while ago in Domlur; Bangalore Little Theatre, as part of their "VP 80" festival, was staging "Credit Titles"; the play, written by Vijay Padaki, whose 80th birthday the festival marks, was based on a story by Vinod Vyasulu, an eminent economist whom I've known for a long time, as our daughters share a cose friendship dating from 1988. And last but…
