During the morning rush hour, people dash to subway stations to climb onto crowded trains. Inside, people are either looking into mobile phones or staring ahead blankly as music blares from their earphones. When the train jerks, people waddle as they try to balance. When the train stops at their destination, off they go again running. Such is the daily routine of most urbanit...
