No Boss ... it's that love where the Younger Son (SDAH Div) gets more love , where the Elder Daughter (HWH Div) gets left out and ignored knowingly OR unknowingly :(
I have witnessed it myself :0

Daughter would never be ignored that too under a Woman RM(I am right here).
Leaving apart both the divisions, there isnt much difference.
Its a total loss. Look the losses mounting high.
So, if you say that if a DD runs in HWH Div,its justified with the same occupancy ratio.

Are Sir , I have seen this difference . I have traveled in SDAH Raj in 2005 which had excellent service but in my HWH Raj (via PNBE) journey this year , I have found that it's services have deteriorated over the years . My last trip in 1998 in HWH Raj (via GAYA) was far better during those days . Rajdhanis are the Main Trains for any Zonal Railway [and it's Division(s)] . Looking at the Raj Services I can tell you that I am disappointed with this partiality between HWH & SDAH Divs . Come to Calcutta once and ask the people over here , you will then get to know :)

Ok,I have accepted and for some reasons I might not come to HWH for the next few years. But, how do you justify the running of this train w.r.t. to the both divisions?
I am not aware of services between those 2 trains but as per the avbl factors, they both are doing exceptionally well. So, if the quality of food deteriorates, that's a secondary issue. Here, in this case there are no passengers.

I agree with you on this point of scrapping a train service with little or no passengers , be it Double Decker or any other type of train (Just like I agreed with Bhanu Sir) BUT I still stick to my stand that a vast difference has come between HWH & SDAH Divs (Not only in terms of Food Quality but many other things in their Raj Trains) . Nice discussing with you . Should this Blog now be archived or do you want to say something else also ?
