I've just read that since 2010 at least 50 elephants have been killed on Indian train tracks

49 elephants have indeed been killed on train tracks by speeding trains primarily passing through massive stretches of dense jungles in eastern India (the states of West Bengal and Orissa) since 2010.
There is no simple solution to this issue as the number of wild elephants have vastly increased in these hugely forested regions of eastern India and trains move much faster nowadays in India, than before.

However, several measures are being initiated to resolve this issue.
In a written reply, the Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said his ministry is holding regular meetings with the Environment Ministry to take remedial measures for controlling elephant casualties.
"Elephant corridors have been identified by the Forest Department and on such corridors speed restrictions have been imposed and signage boards provided to pre-warn the train drivers," he said.

He also said that advisories have been issued to zonal Railways to sensitise train crew and station masters on regular basis.

"In consultation with the Environment and Forest Ministry and the forest departments of state governments, Railways is also attempting to find a more lasting solution in the matter through deposit works consisting of measures such as construction of ramps and underpasses etc, the cost of which will be borne by the Forest Department," Bansal said.

Tricialeahy, on this same page, I've discussed the completion of a major Indian Railways project in Jammu & Kashmir State.
Since you didn't bother to even read this page, it seems apparent you're just trolling!

There are hundreds of Indian Railways projects under active implementation, some nearer to completion than others.
Kindly bother to delve deeper into the following SSC sub-forum for more details:-

Indian Railways Projects under active implementation

Also, only a handful of countries run high-speed trains. Even the world's superpower, USA, doesn't run truly high-speed trains. Why would you troll about high-speed rail in a regular rail thread?

Also, you're incorrect about the speed. Train# 12002 called the Bhopal Shatabdi Express runs at a peak speed of 162 km/hour.

About 70 different express train routes run at a peak speed close to 150 km/hour, that cover the length and breadth of a huge country like India.

HSR

Dear n20, You're right, a seperate thread already details on planning/conceiving HSR. However, your justification, solely based on comparison to US, is not sufficient. HSR has become a need now, my dear friend. Maybe you are happy travelling at 80 kmph, others are not. Moreover, Shatabdi's peak speed of 162 kmph does not qualify her as HSR, you must know that.

Sorry, I could not refrain myself.

I don't know when the condition of Indian railways would get better. There are some crucial things that require improvement including security and eating services.
