Use public transport

A lot has been written and debated about Rahul Gandhi's visit to Mumbai and taking a local train to commute. No doubt that he struck a chord with many Indians who are not used to seeing politicans use public transport . And at the same time delivered a (much needed ) blow to the Shiv Sena / MNS who for all their rhetoric on the mythical Marathi manoos probably need directions on how to reach a train station.

All in all , the relative appeal of the Congress points to the adage that in the land of the blind the one-eyed is king.
