Trips are many but you are right that trip reports section has gone very quiet.
Infact, i find very few trip reports on any rf social site these days. Mostly its about pics and rail news only.

Sep 07 2016 (8:02PM)   Dynamic fares for Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Duronto trains from September 9

Entry# 1984140   News Entry# 279332         Tags   Past Edits
Indian Railways will introduce dynamic fares in Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains from September 9.
"The base fares will increase by 10 per cent with every 10 per cent of berths sold subject to a prescribed ceiling limit. There will be no change in the existing fare for 1AC and EC class of travel," a railway ministry release said.
As passenger traffic has been dipping in the last few years across the country, railways is looking at different ways to generate revenue from passengers on high-density routes.

Dubious decision ?
This is in collusion with airlines. They are unable to fill seats with 1.3 bn population. Even if 1% people fly by air then this won't happen.

Such pics dares ones who have sensitive immune (due to born / living in cleaner world) to travel in trains. The ones who accept challenges get sick terribly. I have witnessed such awful experience mate.

Jun 14 2016 (7:11AM)   The shocking tale of India's 'Cancer Train'
 

Baaz SGUJ WDP4~   109 news posts
Entry# 1894429   News Entry# 270942         Tags   Past Edits
Everyday, the dimly lit and shabby Bhatinda railway station in the Indian state of Punjab comes to life sharp at 9 pm. The reason? The arrival of a passenger train that's been long christened as the Cancer train on platform no 2.
The train leaves Bhatinda around 9.25 pm and covers a distance of about 325 km with 26 halts to reach Bikaner in the Indian state of Rajasthan at 6 am. Sometimes, it's an hour or two late.
The most remarkable feature of this train is that 60% of its
...
more...
population are cancer patients of all ages who come from all across Punjab. This 12-coach train has gained its name from a sudden increase in cancer cases in Punjab that many blame on pesticide use, growing pollution and hardly any response by authorities.
On an average, this train is the lifeline of 100 cancer patients daily, along with 200 other co-travellers and is almost always packed to near capacity.
The ticket is priced at Rs 210, but for cancer patients the eight hour journey to bikaner is free, while one accompanying attendant gets a concession of 75 percent.
All the patients aboard the train undertake this journey to visit Acharya Tulsi Regional Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Prince Bijay Singh Memorial Hospital, in Bikaner, which like many hospitals in Punjab is also covered for benefits under the Mukh Mantri Punjab Cancer Raahat Kosh Scheme (MMPCRKS).
One of them is a frail 68-year-old Madan Lal who along with his sister boards the sleeper coach, the only compartment with reserved seats, which allows him to lie down on the seat.
All the remaining coaches are of the general category, where passengers jostle to find space.
Lal, who hails from Mallan village in Faridkot district of Punjab has been undergoing treatment for cancer in his food pipe since the last year and has made over 30 visits to the Bikaner hospital.
The first question that comes to mind is invariably this, 'Why are scores of cancer patients from Punjab travelling to a far-off place in Rajasthan for treatment when Punjab itself boasts of state of the art facilities for cancer treatment?'
No matter how many people you ask, the answer for that is the same, and equally alarming. As Lal reveals, he did go to Faridkot Government Hospital more than four times last year when his condition deteriorated, however he never got a chance to see any doctor despite waiting for long hours.

No matter how many people you ask, the answer for that is the same, and equally alarming. As Lal reveals, he did go to Faridkot Government Hospital more than four times last year when his condition deteriorated, however he never got a chance to see any doctor despite waiting for long hours.
The patients on this train are mostly small farmers from the southern districts of Punjab- Mansa, Sangrur, Bhatinda, Faridkot, Moga, Muktsar, Ferozepur and Sangrur, which together make up the Malwa region .
It is in this Malwa region that scores of farmers and their families are coming to grips with cancer and numerous health problems due to the lush fields hiding a scary tale.
Malwa, which is also Punjab's cotton belt, requires the use of a startling amount of pesticides. Reportedly, farmers in this region use 15 different pesticide sprays and the unregulated and excessive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides have resulted in farmers and their families living in a cesspool of toxicity.
In 2011, it was also found that Punjab's farmers use of pesticides is 923 grams per hectare was way above the national average of 570g/ha. Even worse is the fact that farmers also end up using the empty pesticide cans to store not only water but also food, which get contaminated with high heavy-metal toxicity.
The residents have little choice than to drink highly polluted water or bathe in tap water that are sourced from canals where industrial effluents are discharged with impunity.
Many of the farmers blame the success of the 1970's Green Revolution for their sorry state right now. It was during then that the farmers had switched to a combo formula of high yield seeds-fertilizers-pesticide-water from traditional farming methods.
Though, a few years ago, the Punjab government set up water purifiers in villages prone to cancer cases, but it was of little help as those were not cleaned properly.
Meanwhile, hundreds of patients crowd the platform to get on the train hoping against hope while there continues to be atleast 18 deaths due to cancer in the state everyday.

Absolutely correct sir.
The situation is dreadful when we think about what our young kids are eating. No wonder life expectancy in India is reducing decade after decade. Reason is what we eat, drink and breath. The reason is population which we are all part of. To feed 1.25bn people with limited land (that does not grow but reduces day by day for making mega cities) is chaallage. I have seen a video on you tube. It's scary. Need magic wand for solution. There was an episode of Satya Mee Jayte also.
