One good thing about the double decker train is that it is
quiet fast (5 hrs. 30 mins between Chennai and Bangalore).
However, it is the most uncomfortable AC chair car train to
travel in. The seats are about 1ft by 1ft and the head rest
is straight, The passengers have to sit in a crouching
position. Only extremely thin people can barely manage to sit in the seat. if you recline the, person at the back will get
squeezed. The tray table, if you bring it out, it will hit
your chest.
The net result is that after the 5 to 6 hours of travel, one
gets a back pain.

To make it more comfortable, railways need to :
1. Remove some rows, so that there is more leg space between rows.
2. Make it 2 by 2 seater instead of 3 by 2 to make the seats wider.
3. 2 by 1 seats in each row, in at least a few coaches with an additional charge.
This would at least make the seating comfortable.

This is all the more necessary, especially in the Chennai<-> Banglaore route, since on 2 days a week there is
only one Shatabdi and the AC coach has been removed from
Brindavan express.

in todays world it is not an yeomans task for engineers of railways to sit and break their head to imagine and design and make proto type of any thing related to railway coaches. It is just either in the internet of a visual trip to any western country or even import a coach for study ofcourse COPYING THE DESIGN as we Indian always did in anything and everything.
now when such facilities and read working comfortable designs are available in the world outside India, why the coaches in India are in unfriendly designs.>>>> the answer is simple.. For Indian scenario it is the CHALEGA attitude. Indians within India are taken for granted since there will be very rarely a comment or complaint reaching the railways. Even if it reaches, the guy who receives it will READ, LAUGH AND THROW IT INTO THE DUSTBIN, he knows that railway has no system for any employee including the GM to take assessments of the 'comfort zone'. inside coaches. The coaches running without proper lighting, fans not working, no water in the toilets, stinking filthy toilets, crude and rude railway staff are all part of a railway system that has run since Independence. Indians are like the tamed elephants, mute and cannot resist atrocities of any kind.
The Indian governance mentality for the people is just mediocre and about 45 years behind railway systems of the west and even China which runs fully air conditioned long distance trains for millions of Chinese workers.
a glance of thte inside situation of 'Gareeb Radh' from Trivandrum to bangalore used by high tech engineers and intellectuals is enogh to give an answer yo how the indians are considered by the railways more
