This is really unusual. Families travel on holidays to their homes, people go out as a family for excursion. Railways is the ideal way to see India and bond with the different people and places which make them proud to be Indians. Not all are affluent to travel by air. Further, the best way to see India is to travel by road in your own car, so that you can stop where you want and interact and see. That is not feasible in conducted road trips by tourist agencies. However, the cost of petrol and diesel has made this impossible. The next best is by rail. You can see the countryside as the train moves past. Air travel is the worst way to see India since it flies high and you are confined from one point to another. It is true that a child travelling with concession occupies a seat or berth just like an adult. Had that seat or berth been booked by an adult, the railways would have received the full fare. If people don't grudge paying airlines full fare for children, why should they seek concession during rail travel, but then the Railway Board senior official must realise that it is not the rich who travel by train or those who can afford air travel. Further, Railways is run on tax payers money and not the airlines! Hence, it should be a profit oriented cum social need balanced organisation.
