I Travelled in NZM-MAS garibrath deparing from nizamuddin.. first point to be noticed is that the train boggies was not cleaned or washed which they are supposed to do in the carriage centres.. inside the compartment it was good.. but as the people we never keep our surroundings clean.. keepng the tea cups near or bearth itself.. it was such a painful thing to see the garbagges surrounded me.. even though v travel in graib rath its not meant that v shuold not take care for these things//

Welcome to IndiaMike!

Did you just register to crib about sanitary conditions in Indian Railways? Is it your first such experience? Are you appalled because you saw this in an AC coach? Is it OK in trains with Non-AC classes?

I'm not being rude, I understand what you are trying to say here. It is so common to see garbage on trains, that it's not a big deal anymore. Have you ever noticed a dust-bin on any train? People are used to lobbing refuse out of windows. Where are they supposed to shove it if they buy a cheap Garib Rath ticket and find that windows are sealed in an AC coach?

Did you lodge a complaint with TTE after seeing that the boggie wasn't cleaned or washed? Did you try to educate your fellow passengers in "proper way" or getting rid of garbage (if there is any)?

If not, then what's the use of cribbing about it here on an Internet forum? Most people are not going to read this thread anyways.

Delhi - Chennai

Rs2075 for 3A in Rajdhani
Rs892 for 3A in Garib Rath

Same travel time for both trains.

I find the Rajdhani more cluttered, mainly because of the extra staff regularly blocking one end of the carriage (a serious safety issue if there was ever a crash and it will happen), the trays they hand out and the endless supply of wrappers for everything they give, it can be a real mess.

Personally, I'd prefer the Garib Rath, and I'd simply collect all the rubbish (even other people's) and store it under a seat, or at the end of the carriage.

This is the way Indians are..indisciplined and no public sense. Though in a/c compartments the window cannot be opened, but passengers can still collect their own garbage in a plastic bag. Even in non a/c compartments families happily shell peanuts around them!
And educate people around you in a train journey! I find this advice to be just impractical. In day-journeys daily passengers regularly fill up the compartments..try sharing advice with them!

Bottom line..'we are like this only'!

My point exactly, if even talking about civic sense in a train is impractical, how is it going to help cribbing about it here? People just love to complain on a public Internet forum, when they wouldn't dare open their mouth in the train. How many people actually take some steps? Only one step is practical what Steve just mentioned - simply do your bit and set an example!
