The Unsung Heroes of the MEGA BLOCK!
Every week the Central and Western Railway officials organise a block on their railway network to carry out necessary maintenance work. Mumbaikars are often stressed about it as the local train services are delayed or halted during the specific time. However, what most people do not realise is that nearly 4000 railway gangmen work tirelessly during these blocks. These gangmen work throughout the six to seven hours block maintaining the railway lines, cleaning the tracks and the adjacent areas. The gangmen not just maintain but also monitor if there are any faults in the tracks, check the fish flates, toggle fish plates and ensure adequate supply of ballast. They make sure he commuters are safe while travelling in local trains. The unsung heros were captured by our lensman SANTOSH GUPTA who experienced many mega blocks capturing their work.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will do well at work and monetary gains are indicated. Perhaps you may be cited for an honor for a recent achievement. Those who have been unwell will make a quick recovery. A happy occasion will be celebrated in the family. This maybe something, you have been really looking forward to.
