Dear Prof. Shabeer !!
Greetings from Ravi S from Coimbatore. Well, I have seen your blogs and posts in the histoblog website.
Well, in the History of Indian Independence, the sorrowful incident of WAGON TRAGEDY has not been given the prominence and has never been in the limelight. It is nothing short of Jalianwala bagh massacre or Chauri chaura incident.
Well, the time has come for all of us to pay homage to the victims of Wagon tragedy and the apt time is NOW. 
How ? 
It has been announced in the recent railway budget that train no. 22609 / 10 Mangalore - Palakkad INTERCITY express would be extended to Coimbatore jn. This may be done on any date when the new railway time table comes to effect from 1st July 2012.
