Visit Aquarium if you have to wait long for a train connection at Railway Station!

The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC) Limited has built the Bengaluru City Railway Station Aquarium in collaboration with HNi at a cost of Rs 1.2 crore with the aim of enhancing the passenger experience at the station. Passengers who enter the Aquatic Kingdom can now catch a glimpse of live sharks and exotic fish from Amazon river basin. There is a gate-fee and queue too as social distancing must be followed during Covid times.                               Such Aquariums will soon be built in Chandigarh, Pune and a few other railway stations in India where passengers have to wait long for their train connections.

Very interesting. Is it real or virtual? For a real aquarium to exist, the cost of maintenance I think will be prohibitive. With the kinds of crowds, we have at the Railway Stations, letting in only 25 people at a time would mean long queues and waiting time, but all in all it seems to be a good initiative provided it can be maintained in good shape.
