The garib rath is supposed to be the ‘Poor Man’s Chariot’ . Its the ‘Lalu way’ of giving the poor a chance to enjoy benefits that the upper class of the society enjoy. I liked the concept, this also meant lower AC fares.
I once boarded a green colored Garib Rath from Kerala- Yeswatpur (Near Bangalore City). The 3AC interiors to my suprise was a lot cleaner and fresh than the 2Ac compartments of most trains. And to add to my surprise I have to pay for the blanket. Rs 25/Blanket,which obviously have to be returned back.
Nevertheless, the ticket was cheap and I get all the benefits of the 3AC travel.

40th Anniversery of Moon Landing : Forty years back the Apollo team landed on the moon and Armstrong took the giant leap.

(Watch Apollo 13 Movie starring Tom hanks,which features the third attempt from Nasa to land on Moon)
