Lol..U r correct! Somehow I like this Duronto and especially its first class!
My only issue was my exams had ended on last Monday! And my Classes are gonna start from today!
So if you consider, it is just 6 days holiday! If I spend (2+2=4 days) in a train just to travel, how much time am I gonna spend at home? And
this time gap is exactly the same in almost all of the holidays I get (after every 4-5 months).
That was the sole reason I had when I wrote I wish to take flight from the next time!

when you travel next time in Duronto pls do not discontinue your commentary regarding food service. It will get an overall idea about the food served on Duronto. How clean is Duronto compartments. Whether ticket less passengers are available on this train [bugs, cockroaches, rats etc.] as I have noticed in some long distance trains with pantry car.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up.

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members. The ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE of the process is to promptly handle/look into Reports filed by members, which is expected to...

    There are some changes to the Forum section. . The Objection feature is now completely GONE. We now only have a "Report Abuse" button. When the Report button is used, an alert is sent to the "Forum Monitor" group. ALL FMs will see an "FM Alert" notification at the top. Thereafter, they will...
