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.
