    Stinky old toilets on Indian Railways' trains may soon be a problem of the past! Don't believe us? Suresh Prabhu-led Indian Railways is focusing on revamping toilets on trains and the prototypes of the new toilets for both AC and non-AC coaches are ready! According to a report in the Indian Express, Railways claims that the new toilets are similar to those in premium-class airlines. Toilets of two coaches of the Uttar Pradesh Sampark Kranti Express have been modified to create prototypes of these modular toilets and also get passenger feedback.

      The truth is that none of nuclear countries, including US, N. Korea, Russia, China, Pak or India can afford a nuclear war, but India should give be ing reply to stan on acting as barbarians. Without further delay, stan should be declared as a terrorist state, though it should have been done long back. Also convince other friendly countries to declare the same.

Cl ke naam pe services deke Indians ko consumer bana ke rakhne ka main motto hai Govt ka.. Freight corridor ko Bullet train se replace karke desh ke logo ko ullu banane ka agenda expose hona jaruri hai Laluji ne desh ke kisano ko desh ke kone kone se joodne ke liye freight corridor introduce kiya lekin BJP govt desh se kisano ko ukhad fekegi

            Happly appalouse that now our government is thinking to offer a luxurious train journey to general public. But at the same time I would request to put a visible ad to maintain the cleanliness by this general public. The existing coaches are cleaner when it comes from yard but when this public enter they make it like anything. I have seen the same in AC coaches too. The well educated people are also not behind to get the train dirty they have food and most of the time tea and leave everything near by seating area. I request these people to carry a empty poly bag in journey and put all his garbage in that. And nowadays every station has got bin where they can throw this when train stop. Request one more thing to Mr.Prabhu that plz replace the SS rack which is just above the seating area in general coach with sleeping seat as it is there in sleeper coach.
