Baapre so many people here?
I just imagine if all the population of BIhar who are working abroad or in different states come home during holi, hence the rush!
Isn't it so?

Agar saare log ghar aane ke liye train mein baith gaye to train start hi nahi ho payegi :p
There are many people who are not able to come because of non availability of tickets, many others plan to travel but decide not to after seeing the jam packed trains.
Rush is also because holi is most important festival of Bihar after chhath.

But Holi rush is bigger than Chaath rush I feel. Isn't it?

Many people of Delhi, Mumbai have started doing chhath at Yamuna ghat, sea beaches, etc so the rush has reduced.
Chhath festival is mainly about the devotion to God, spending time with family may come as bonus. Whereas Holi is all about spending time with family, having fun, eating delicious food, etc.

    एक के बाद एक हो रही ट्रेन दुर्घटनाओं की असली वजह 'मिशन रफ्तार' है, जिसने पहले से यातायात के दबाव से ग्रस्त रेल पटरियों को क्षतिग्रस्त करना शुरू कर दिया है। रोजाना पकड़े जा रहे दर्जनों रेल फ्रैक्चर इसका प्रमाण हैं। इनमें ज्यादातर को समय रहते दुरुस्त कर लिया जाता है।...

    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...
