First of all we booked the tickets 2 months before the summer vacations. We have been there two times in last 5 years. We started our journey from Hazrat Nizamuddin station via Bangalore Rajdhani. It takes two days to reach Bangalore and about the train, it's awesome. You will get everything you need in Rajdhani and an excellent level of service and food.
Its quality is improved from last time I visited it. I often travel by this train since I am doing my graduation from NIT Warangal but I am from Delhi. The train only halts at 6 or 7 major stations excluding Warangal. Jhansi, Gwalior, Agra Cant, Nagpur, Bhopal and Warangal. It's an on time train and you don't need to worry about anything once you are inside.
It's was nor a bad neither a good journey. As because its a very long journey but during the journey I made some new friends and had great fun with them. The food is not upto the mark but still it was good. When we reached our destination I felt like we have covered the distance for visiting heaven.
Kannayakumari is very good, somewhere clean place but a big problem is that there are very few people who know Hindi language in Kannayakumari. Somewhere their is a language problem there but thatís not a big issue as most of us know minimum of 2 languages.
The staff detailed for distribution of food is not adequately trained. Also, they want much more money as a trip they were asked money in a very negative manner. This type of activity should be stopped immediately and staff should be dressed in good manner.
We started our journey from Delhi. We were really pissed with the hot weather because it was summer there and the toilets were not that clean. Sometimes there was no water supply at all. Since we were going to South, we only had rice to eat all the time. We managed somehow and finally we reached our destination.
Travelling in Rajdhani Express is now not so good option. Very poor services are being provided in the H.Nizamuddin-Trivandrum Central Rajdhani Express (12432). Food was not good. However, timing and punctuality was excellent. You should avoid Rajdhani express while going for a Kerala Trip.
