Viraf listening to Kaka Phadke.jpg (67461 bytes)  With several pictures at hand, I was wondering where to start with. Viraf had secured photo permit for us. And my old friend, Shri Datta Phadke, Chief Loco Inspector at MCT agreed to escort us to Carshed to zip us past the RPF jawans. Seen here in the office near the work area, Datta Phadke (L) and Viraf (R).
