Love your reports normally and this was even better. I am seriously nostalgic for Indian Railways and the amazing samosas we could buy on the trains. It has now been 19 years since i was last on an Indian train. How time flies :(

This is definitely not just some cross booking. Again from Chrissy's feed:
