Puri Chennai Express (22859)

Sometimes unintentionally, I came across to reach Chennai with urgency. I want to reach to Chennai with shortest time, to reach to Apollo Hospital, Chennai. It is the choice between air flight and train. I always prefer to go with train journey as I continue to use the time in writing out enormous distance and realise what I have experienced my life for later stages.

I did ticket in tatkal booking, and di with Puri Chennai Express and the number of the train is 22859. It is a weekly train and it goes directly from Puri to Chennai. It is a superfast express. It starts from Puri on Sunday and reach on Monday at Chennai Central railway station. After reaching at Chennai Central it then start towards Puri. It reaches at Puri on Tuesday.

I reached at Puri station. It is there at platform no. 8. I reached at the station one hour earlier. The train was standing there, and it is red. I reached the B2 segment and then I wanted to enter my coach at the same time the worker said the train was in the process of overall cleaning. I realised the importance of Clean India and that is there and I wait for the time to enter the train.

After sometime I reached into coach. After some time I realise that the three pin charger not working as some faults there. This means I decided to preserve the process of charging of batteries. Luckily I have phone which had good amount of battery. The clean up status of the train was good. It has green toilet. The floor was covered with plastics this means water will remain downwards.

It has automated clean up strategies and it works nicely. There were hand shower and it made cleaning job nicely and convenient. The door lock system is good. The basin has nice tap and the liquid soap and that made washing of hands extremely convenient. The auto clean up functions inside latrine of this coach is very nice and good. It added extra benefits and conveniently an wonderful journey.

They write the instructions to clean up latrine in English, Hindi and for the first time in braille language. It provides another surprise and see wonderful decorations and I realise in this way government works for all citizens. In the coach wrote, do not provide commision to coach care taker.

I found that the same care taker asked for the commission. I said it is against the rule. He said: how he would live with small money. I do not reply it to him. The air condition of coach is good and the entire space is full of nice environment.
