For the convenience and safety of the female passengers, the Delhi metro came up with the idea of ladies coach. A separate coach for women only. But, I need to ask one question!

You might have heard people saying that though metro has given a separate coach for ladies then don’t know why they board in the other coaches too. Dude! It’s not the fault of the female passengers that some so called very intelligent person didn’t think about the population of the ladies.
