We are going to visit "Chandipur on Sea" from 25th to 28th September. Then proceeding to Cuttack, staying there on 29th and 30th. Then going to Bhubaneswar.. and after that not decided what to do.. most probably flying back to Kolkata from Bhubaneswar.

Train tickets from Kolkata to Balasore and from Balasore to Cuttack are booked. Have booked the Otdc Panthanivas at chandipur sea beach.

You may consider the vessel tour in River Ganga.

The time is given 6 Pm - 8 Pm in that tour, but it will be changed later I think.

Darjeeling trip on Puja time.
Should we cancel our confirmed train tickets or wait for few days more?

You may wait for a few more days, Sandip. No seat is available in trains from Sealdah/ Howrah to North Bengal from 26 th Sep onwards. Very high waiting lists. It seems no one has cancelled their tickets yet. So, hoping against hope that the strike would be called off at least for that period

Don't cancel the tickets now. Wait for few days/weeks more. Also you can go to other places from NJP (like, Guwahati) if you want.

The reality is that if you lose the ticket then you will not get any confirmed train tickets for Puja time now. All trains are in very high waiting list.

I have cancelled my tour of Darjeeling, Tinchuley. I assumed that if the strike has withdrawn it is nearly impossible to make perfect condition for travels as they burnt lots of place which includes a pump station. There was huge loss for all the transporter, shop owner etc during the strike who will try to recover some of the loss. So I kept it for the next year.

Now I am going to Amritsar, Haridwar, via New Delhi. I decided in this issue near about 1 and half months ago. Got Ticket of Rajdhani, Shatabdi, and Janshatabdi for our journey.

I think bengali's are pioneer of traveling, if they wish they can do anything for travel.

Tickets of shatabdi is available as because there are lots of seats. Now Rajdhani Express ticket. I used the 15 years old trick (though it was with other Train). Bhubenswar Rajdhani Touches Kharagpur while its journey to New Delhi or on return. One via TATA another Via Adra. I got both the tickets confirmed. Total of Nine tickets.

I just have to travel Kharagpur from Howrah by Local or Memu or any express train.

It is troublesome but for travel we can overcome it.
