But I am totally agree with IndiaCivic we still use it. There are various classes in India railways, there are also first class air conditioned well maintained coaches fro luxury travel. Govt are trying to make all these facilities fro every traveler fro this sake GaribRath & Duronto trains have been started.

Something I hope to experience and photograph myself soon. I’ve always wondered, if the carts are so crowded, why not just hang out on the roof for some fresh air?
