Imagine India 30 years ago; or even before that. Before Tata's producing next to everything from tea to trucks, and with less of a British intrusion. A India without the cyber-revolution and without that so ccc-cute Bollywood tune or tacky Trichy temple painted in Bollywood colours. Then change the railway gauge to a narrower one than elsewhere in the former Raj, bring the best of your good spirit, sit down and smile for you are there: welcome to Bangladesh.
