Despite all of the work and preparation in the lead-up to the attempt, he were aware that it would be a physically and mentally demanding challenge.
The night before he couldn’t sleep properly due to anxiety.
“I have been using Delhi Metro for a long time so I am very much aware of all the lines. My planning was from which station and line should I have to start and end so I can complete my record before time,” Singh said.
Of all of the stations, Patel Chowk (Yellow Line) is his favorite as it houses a small museum celebrating Delhi Metro.
