I wonder why the railways has chosen the name 'DURANTO' express. Duranto in Kannada and I believe in hindi also, means a mishap. God forbid our duranto expresses meet with mishaps !
Was it meant to mean TURANT meaning immediate or fast by our Bengali railway minister !

yes. If it remains in RAC, you will get a berth no. in a specified Coach which will be shared with some other passenger. If gets confirmed till charting, you will get an exclusive berth no. in a specified Coach.
