Save Ganga - Clean The Tributaries DAY 1

We had a very common experience with booking the bicycles at Howrah Station for transport to Haridwar . We came to the Station with our bicycles at 11am, even though the Railways Department was fully aware of our requirement it took us till 4pm to finally resolve our issues.There was also an attempt for bribery. The bicycle prepared for transport by DOON EXPRESS will be transported by the UPASANA EXPRESS departing the next day. If that happens the delivery will be made the
same day we reach haridwar.

Hope that, what they're saying is what they'll do.

Here we go...

Some of the things we have learnt:

1. Even if the Railway Authority is informed, you may not be able to get what you
2. If you book your goods for transport it may not be delivered the day you intend to
   have it delivered.

3. If you are asked for bribe, do inform their superiors... it has worked.
