    I would love it :) @Levina @SrNair @nair @Hellfire

    The exclusion of 'Metro Man' E Sreedharan's name initially from the list of dignitaries who would share the dais with Prime Minister Narendra Modi when the latter would inaugurate the Kochi Metro train on Saturday had created brouhaha.

    The Pinari Vijayan government of Kerala wrote to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) asking it to revise the seating plan.

    Later in the day, the PMO said Sreedharan has been included in the list of dignitaries. This puts an end to the controversy over the non-inclusion of DMRC principal adviser Sreedharan.


    However, sources told India Today that PMO had deliberately omitted Sreedharan's name even though he has played a pivotal role in the building of Kochi Metro.

    I highly doubt this, the very reason the ire it would create..... I dono if you remember the controversy around his last kerala visit. Shankar's statue in kollam..... So the chances are "0".....

    According to me the 2 guys who can take Cochin metro's credit is..... 1) E sreedharan 2) Ooman Chandi.......

    You would love it,but the numbers are not on your side.

    Next president would probably be Kariya Munda, and Vice President would most probably be an outright BJP stooge, as BJP need to put a full stop on endless adjournments in RS.

    7 Facts About Metro Man E Sreedharan, The Man We Want As Railways Minister
    [​IMG]

    The man who has revolutionized the way Delhites commute every day, E Sreedharan has emerged as the country’s first choice for the next Railway Minister. He’s the backbone on which the rests the success of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. In his personal like, he’s a simple man and a resident of Ponnani in Kerala.

    Today, breaking the barriers of time and cost, Delhi Metro has become the lifeline of the locals. There’s a train every few minutes, the commuting time has been considerably reduced, you need not worry about getting stuck in the traffic and above all, women can rely upon the Metro for safe travel.

    It’s high time the country honors the “Metro Man” and utilizes his capabilities. The proposal of having him as the next Railway Minister is a welcome move. Let’s find out below, some facts about him, which all Indians must know and be proud of:

    ×
    7. A Retired IES (Indian Engineering Services)
    Elattuvalapil Sreedharan – a Kerala born personality, completed his Civil Engineering from the University College of Engg., JNTUK, Andhra Pradesh. Later on, Sreedharan succeeded to clear the prestigious ESE (Engineering Services Exam, now known as IES) and joined the Southern Railway as a probationary assistant engineer in the year 1954.

    6. He Was A Lecturer
    For short period of time, Sreedharan Sir worked as a lecturer of Civil Engineering before joining the Bombay Port Trust as an apprentice. He used to teach at the government Polytechnic, Kozhikode (Calicut).

    5. Believes in Performing at 101%
    When Sreedharan was posted in Southern Railway, a cyclone in 1964 severely damaged the Pamban Bridge that connected Rameshwaram to the mainland Tamil Nadu (TN). It was a great loss to tje people of Rameshwaram, who were left isolated from TN. The Railways set a target of six month to repair the bridge and pull back life to normal. His boss who was in charge of this ambitious project put Sreedharan (barely 30 at the time) to restore bridge operations within a short deadline of 90 days. This further cut in time limit doesn’t make Sreedharan lose his enthusiasm, cool-off his spirit and as a reward, he completed the project within record 46 days. The Railway recognized his achievement and hard work by felicitating Sreedharan the Railway Minister’s Award. This story tells us how much Sreedharan is devoted to his profession irrespective of conditions.

    4. He Engineered India’s First Metro:
    Sreedharan earned the post of deputy chief engineer in the year 1970. He was assigned with the task of blueprinting Calcutta Metro plan and its implementation. It was going to be the first ever metro in India and millions of eyes were on the fate of project. To everyone’s surprise, Sreedharan not only completed this much heralded project but also laid down the foundation of modern infrastructure engineering in India. In 1981, as the Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) of Cochin Shipyard, Sreedharan guided the first ship building project named MV Rani Padmini and successfully launched it.

    3. He Is a True Traveler
    Sreedharan’s journey in government services came to an end after he retired from Indian Railways as Member Engineering in the year 1990. Post retirement, he was appointed as the CMD of Konkan Railway on contract basis in 1990. He completed India’s first major project under BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) basis. After being widely acclaimed for Konkan project, Sreedharan was made the MD of Delhi metro. Again here with his magic wand (Both hard work and professional skills), Sreedharan completed all schedule sections within budget and without any deadline extensions. Due to this, he was awarded a three year extension to oversee the Phase-II of Delhi Metro. His 16 year journey at Delhi Metro came to an end on 31 December 2011.

    2. The Lights Are Still Not Dimming
    Numerous years in Railway’s service and then, 16 years at Konkan and DMC project, Sreedharan still refuses to hang his boots. He has been appointed as Chief advisor for proposed Lucknow Metro project and Principal Advisor of the Kochi Metro rail Project.

    1. Spectacles into Sreedharan’s Personal Life
    People still wonder what really makes him tick at 80 while a young man at his 20’s struggle to begin his day at 6 or 7 in the morning. Er. Sreedharan day starts at 4 am, followed by a series of meditation rounds of Bhagwad Gita. He reaches office at 9:30 am and gets straight to work. In the evening, he usually takes a long walk with his wife Radha and allocates time to his family of four children. He used to setup reverse clocks to show impending deadlines to his project members during Delhi Metro construction phase. The message of the Gita: To act, without desire for the fruits of the action gave him the courage to act. A plate placed his Kerala office read as: ‘whatever to be done, I do. But in reality I do not do anything’.

    He is the most respected and honest person. He's trustworthy and will be a good candidate for this job.

    I just want to share an incidence he was called upon by maharashtra government and Pune municipal corporation for metro rail project in 2007-08 and he prepared report for phase 1 metro rail pimpri/Chinchwad, vanaaz to Swargate for RS 2500/- crore approx to be completed by 2012. The project was studied by maharashtra government and was almost approved only thing Pawars both chacha-bhatija wanted RS 500 crores and was conveyed to sreedharan to add the amount to report. What sreedharan did was packed the bags and moved to Delhi immediately.

    Till date there is no metro rail in Pune although it is 8th largest city in India. And Hyderabad and Bangalore and even Kochi got metro rail. Now again there is talk of Pune metro rail project but cost raised to RS 9000 crore and by the time it starts it will be doubled.

    Had he been corrupt he would have obliged and made a few crore s for himself too.

    3)Elias George IAS .

    E Sreedharan has chances .But he is not like some other eminent personalities .He is straight forward man and wont change his ethics slightly.Neither Govt nor Opposition can do their usual gimmicks with him .
    But he is completely eligible for the post of President of India . A great engineer that equal to great minds like Sir M Visvesvaraya or Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and one of the most respected person both in India and overseas .
    If he elected as President ,it would be very good for this nation.
