Okhil Babu's letter to the Railway Department :
"I am arrive by passenger train Ahmedpur station and my belly is too much swelling with jackfruit. I am therefore went to privy. Just I doing the nuisance that guard making whistle blow for train to go off and I am running with 'lotah' in one hand and 'dhoti' in the next when I am fall over and expose all my shocking to man and female women on plateform. I am got leaved at Ahmedpur station.
This too much bad, if passenger go to make dung that dam guard not wait train five minutes for him. I am therefore pray your honour to make big fine on that guard for public sake. Otherwise I am making big report to papers."
Any guesses why this letter was of historic value?
It apparently led to the introduction of toilets on trains.
i know! this actually inspired the railways to construct on board toilets ....toilets on train ! ha, gotcha...any prizes ????:) lol
Well the prize is....
you get a chance to use the toilet of any train, even without having any ticket for the same! ;-)
I Think it's valuable to publish in my blog too... ;)
