My TRAIN tickets to Bhubnaeswar are booked as follows (for Third AC):
1. 26th December 2011 (New Delhi to Bhubnaeswar): Bhubnaeswar Rajhani (Train no : 22812)
2. 2nd January 2012 (Bhubnaeswar to New Delhi): BBS RAJDHANI EX (Train no: 22823)
The train takes only 24 hours and there are still a lot of available seats! So why not go ahead and book your tickets and travel with me! (I will be carrying my laptop with a lot of good movies in it :-). It would be like our own small adventure.If you book your tickets by 20th November 2011 and send me your PNR number, TISA can pay your registration fees of Rs 1000 for the NC (Please use the scholarship only if you need it )
So stop whining about the higher airfares, and travel by train :-)
Trivia: Dr Sachin and Mahatma Gandhi both used to travel by train!!
