Seeing the photos/videos of what a train commute in Bombay aka Mumbai involves I do not know how those people handle it.

There was a report published a few years ago about the Mumbai public transit system. At they time, they averaged 10-12 fatalities PER DAY
on their passenger rail system. The most common causes of death were train strikes (people running across the tracks and getting hit by trains), electrocution (people riding on top of the trains and getting electrocuted from overhead wires), and blunt trauma (people hanging off the side of the train and hitting utility poles or other fixed objects along the right-of-way).
Imagine the outcry if a U.S. transit system had 10-12 fatalities over the course of 50 years.
