~~~ The Flying Horse of Mewar ~~~
.
#Name: Pratap Singh, popularly known as Maharana Pratap was a Rajput ruler of Mewar province of Rajasthan. The Chittor Fort at Chittorgarh, which was Pratap’s ancestral home was under Mughal occupation. It was his dream to capture Chittor in order to give Mewar its lost glory. On 21st June, 1576, the two armies (one of Maharana Pratap and other of Akbar) met each other at Haldighati. The Mughal forces outnumbered the Rajput forces and Pratap’s generals prevailed upon him to flee the

field so as to be able to fight some other day. Myths indicate that to facilitate Pratap's escape, one of his lieutenants, a member of the Jhala clan, donned Pratap's distinctive garments and took his place in the battlefield, so that Pratap can safely escape. He was soon killed. Meanwhile, riding his trusty Chetak, Pratap was able to successfully evade captivity and escape to the hills. However, Chetak was critically wounded on his left thigh by a mardana (Elephant Trunk Sword), with spear of weight 26.3 kg while Pratap had attempted to nail down Emperor Akbar. Chetak was bleeding heavily and he collapsed after jumping over a small river a few kilometres away from the battle field. A famous couplet in a poem narrates this incident of the battle:
~ Aage nadiya padi apaar, ghoda kaise utare paar; Rana ne socha is paar, tab tak chetak tha us paar... ~
English Translation :
Lies the boundless river ahead, How will the horse cross it? While Rana was thinking still on this side (of river), Chetak was that side!
.
Since the train connects Delhi with Udaipur, one of the important cities of Mewar region, the train is named as Chetak Express as a mark of respect to Chetak who was a horse of unparalleled fame, courage, speed, intelligence and sacrifice who gave up his life for the cause of freedom.

And yes, none of the character characters here is running with a delay of more than 2-3 hours nor is there any diversion/disruption/unnatural scenario
The interesting case of a dual overtake.
.
Sam was traveling in a compartment holding the alias S2 of a blue coloured rake. The train had departed precisely at the scheduled time but with only a dozen minutes to follow there was an unscheduled halt. To his dismay this was enough to trigger the catastrophe. At the very next station the train was looped to give way to the storm coming from behind. The red beauty roared and whipped past Sam's train within seconds. Astonished and amazed, Sam sighed and waited for an uninterrupted run ahead, given the priority his train commanded. And that's what followed too, not till long though as after some time in excess of five hours, the same storm struck Sam's train YET AGAIN and thundered past him

in a moment of amazement. But HOW?
How can a train be overtook by the same train, TWICE? Well for now, Sam knows the secret. Do you?
.
Besides clarifying doubts, if any, I shall respond here as and when someone comes up with correct names of BOTH the blue legend and the red beauty or by tomorrow evening 9 PM, whichever is earlier. And yes, none of the characters here is running with a delay of more than 2-3 hours nor is there any diversion/disruption/unnatural scenario.
Keep guessing. Good night.

Once whwn I was travelling in Chetak express from Delhi to Udaipur the. twice overtake happended at that time also.
1.New delhi Ahmedabad Rajdhani express overtook chatak between DEC-RE
2.New delhi Ahmedabad rajdhani express overtook Chetak at Phulera.
Since chetak travels on shortcut route and goes via ringus and rajdhani runs on longer route and takes more time to reach phulera from RE.

''हाँ लेकिन सुपरफास्ट
पिंकसिटी के आ जाने बाद
भी धड़ल्ले से हमारी चेतक
भाप के इंजन से चलती थी.
जिसके विदेशी खुश
हो हो कर फोटू खींचते थे.
तब हम अपने पिछ्ड़ेपन पर
दुख मनाते थे, मगर अब वह
बहुत याद आती है''.
