About the Author
A journalist for the past twenty years, Rajendra B. Aklekar has two things on his mind—the railways and Bombay. He started his career with Rusi Karanjia’s firebrand The Daily, where he used to run a weekly column on the history of Bombay’s railway stations. Presently, Aklekar is associated with The Times Group’s Mumbai Mirror. He has trained himself in museology to document Bombay’s vanishing relics, helped the railways set up heritage galleries, and worked on several prestigious projects to conserve the city’s ancient structures.

It has historic (Unseen) picture collections too. It is worth to Read (& of course highly recommended to BUY).
One more reason to buy is it "forwarded by Mark Tully - “Rajendra B. Aklekar's research and his scholarship which enables him to interpret his findings throws new light on the way railways were built.' Sir Mark Tully, author of Non-Stop India”
Halt Station India - A book that actually lives up to its name. A beautiful informative book on little port of Bombay. Stories are well framed with pictures.
Halt Station India is not just about the railways—it is the true story of the growth of India’s business capital (Bombay) and a rare study of a nation.
Thank you Rajendra B. Aklekar Sir for Excellent script on Bombay literature.
I know Rajendra B. Aklekar through Social networking site, and I can say he is passionate for “Railways and Bombay” All the Best.
