Arrived in Madgaon, need to relax and take a bit of rest? AC Lounge is where you should be!!
Madgaon has a wonderful AC Lounge operated by Konkan Railway. It is
situated on PF-1, near the main exit. Charges are Rs. 25 for 2 hrs and Rs. 35 for 4 hours. Extension in time is available. The attendant was extremely polite and helpful, he asked for my ticket, noted my PNR number and IN time and issued me the ticket. He then asked me to wait for 15-20 minutes since cleaning was going on. An excellent job done by the cleaning staff, the lounge was spick and span with good cooling. The washroom was clean and the dry area near wash-basin had liquid soap. I was lucky enough to have this entire lounge all to myself!!
Kudos to KR for this superb facility, other zones might do well to follow KR's footsteps.

जननी जन्मभूमि स्वर्ग से महान है
जिसके वास्ते ये तन है मन है और प्राण है ॥धृ॥
ईसके कण कण में लिखा रामकृष्ण नाम है
हुतात्माओंके रुधिरसे भूमि सष्य श्याम है
धर्म का ये धाम
है सदा ईसे प्रणाम है
स्वतंत्र है यह धरा स्वतंत्र आसमान है ॥१॥
ईसकी आन पर अगर जो बात कोई आ पडे
ईसके सामने जो जुल्म के पहाड हो खडे
शत्रु सब जहान हो विरुद्ध आसमान हो
मुकाबला करेंगे जब तक जान मे ये जान है ॥२॥
ईसकी गोद मे हजारो गंगा यमुना झूमती
ईसके पर्वतोंकी चोटियाँ गगन को चूमती
भूमि यह महान है निराली ईसकी शान है
ईसकी जयपताक पर लिखा विजय निशान है ॥३॥

Update: The AC Lounge is still being maintained well. The charges have now increased: Rs 50 for the first two hours, an additional Rs 40 for an additional two hours and two more hours would cost you a total of RS 130.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
