A little commuting perspective from Mumbai

"At least your commute isn't as bad as this," wrote a friend in an email with this link from CNN's Mumbai editor, Sita Wadhwani.

The video shows a crush of female commuters, talking loudly, hanging on to metal handles in what looks more like a cage than a train. Ms. Wadhwani translated some of the shouting as "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING?"

She quipped that the government's official term for rush hour commutes is "superdense crush load."

A global perspective helps when we're complaining about the new MARC seats and the violators of the quiet car rules...
