Indian Railway Stations Blessed with Google's WiFi

Indian railway stations will soon be laced with WiFi by Google. Google will give WiFi service on at least 400 railway stations in India where Wi-Fi zones would be set up for customers to connect online. This news has come across from America after recent visit of PM Narendra Modi to silicon valley.



Now question on lips of every Indian citizen is: "Which would be those 400 lucky railway stations where WiFi zone would be set up?" Everyone wishes his city station is the one that makes the list of WiFi enabled stations.
Actually any station can be converted into WiFi zone. But there are 7172 railway stations in India and it is not easy to determine where to provide wireless connectivity. The logical mind says:"Set up WiFi where it is needed most." And that is what Google is going to do.

The story goes like this. In 1982, in Bokaro district of Jharkhand state in India, a railway station by the name 'Chas' was established in a village named 'kala Patthar'.
