Should I write an ‘argumentative essay’ on the benefits of land transportation?

I think I should. I really should. Another month has gone by without much on this blog. I’m sorry. Being in the media business is not an easy task.

Like last month, I did manage to get myself featured in Swarajya’s print edition this month as well; do check it out here: 70 Years After Its Creation, Pakistan Is A Failed State.

Now the important question. A while back, a friend of mine told me about a discussion she had with someone else. She told me that the topic moved towards land-based transit vs others, and referred the other person to my first article on Swarajya: Lesson From Amtrak’s Failure: Invest Heavily In Railways. She then asked me if I could write an ‘argumentative essay’ on the matter. Perhaps I should. I asked on Twitter:

The results were surprisingly positive, so yes, I am going to write one.

I intend to do it in two sections: Intercity and Intracity. I have had my had my reservations about aviation in intracity spaces, you can read about it here: Are We Ready For Three-Dimensional Transport?

So, requesting you folks to drop in a line in the comments section with additional feedback.
