    Using “classic” without knowing meanings of the word…
    Chennai-Coimbatore 585/-
    Rs. 75/- extra but cannot use toilet. Conductors lock it claiming it to be “out of order”.
    So what happens to the extra 75/- I asked. “Go ask management” is the response. The arrogance!
    So, whose pocket it goes to?
