Let me try...
a. The cost of the ticket is too less?
b. Why TN gets more share of railway lines comparatively?
c. Why print the ticket in English and waste ink on a 2 Rs ticket when Hindi alone is enough?
Is it a seven errors game?
Do we have a TT here on this forum to satisfy this lady?
Eager to know the problem
You are at your best when talking back to Kayal
@kayal By the way, Railways have not just banned Tamil, it banned all other 23 or so official Indian languages from printing on the Ticket. So, go figure.
It's a local ticket and it costs less than what peanuts costs. It's a short distance travel. This ticket is issued for travel without reservation. Means you go sit in unreserved coaches where you get to smell the armpits (Yuck!!) and people who come soaked in Desi daaru (Yuck!)
Nothing wrong in the ticket. And the holder of this ticket should not be looking into the reservation chart that is shown in the photo as his ticket is not meant for a reserved seat.
Rs. 2 for a ticket, you should be grateful.
dirt cheap ticket
Why is the reservation list posted in Tamil Nadu in Hindi and Enmglish. No Tamil. How many people in Trichi knpow Tamil? How many Hindi?
Get educated? No?
People with reserved tickets I presume will be educated and middle class.
And the ticket on display is for unreserved class that does not require any reservation list.
I have my relatives in Trichy. So if I was traveling from Trichy after visiting my relatives, how will I know if my name is on the list if it's printed in Tamil. It's Indian Railways you see not Tamil Nadu Railways. People travel from and to TN from all parts of the country.
Actually a very valid question.
Answered by me.
If someone doesn't know Hindi, One can read English.
The official language of the Republic of India is Hindi with English.
What you expect for 2 Rs ticket? Even a Rickshawala won't take you for 1 KM below 10 Rs.
Recently i went to Ahmadabad. There was a train from Kolkatta to Ahmadabad. Everywhere on Train, It was written in Bengali and Gujarati beside English. How a person who lives in North or Central India and doesn't speak English will read ? Many travelers take train in Bihar/UP/MP/Rajasthan too to reach Ahmadabad. No one complains because it doesn't matter. You cannot nitpicks such small thing and make it Hindian or whatever.
You bloody Naarth Hindian
I think @kayal is asking the same question. How will a person who lives in TN and doesn't speak English read?
I have offered an explanation earlier.
