The maiden worst trip in my life...!! hated up to the core.
On 29th Feb I booked 2 tickets for my sis and me in tatkal, surprise I was able to get the ticket below 5 mins( first ever CK within this less time :). Later all the happiness in it were washed up.
We reached station to board the train at 2 pm. It was on PF 1 at MAS. Two things: the pf was half filled with parcels and the remaining half with passengers. Slowly and steadily we made upto S2. And boarded the train, for my bad luck I got seats 4,7 respectively which are just beside the toilets. Cant able to sit there due to the water flow under our seats and the bad smell. People are stuffed
like anything, no place in SL coach. At that time I thought this is going to be bad, worst till VSKP. After charts were placed I moved to SL 5 and from there checking for any seats that are left unfilled. No, I cant see any leftover, all are filled from MAS itself :(, Luckily I had seen 21 berth in S3 which is going to be occupied at BZA, that too under LD quota. The entire 6 in the coupe were ladies. Thank god,I went to my coach asked my sis to move on,along with luggage. Finally I was succesfull to show her place where she can feel secured. There were 5 ladies which are travelling up2 BAM and adjusted there. Now its my turn to request the TTE. ( If I cant go and say about this matter then automatically he can allot to passenger who is going up2 BZA).And after explaining the situation,the TTE okied formally.
