  1. sir , basic requirement of public is availability of seats in sleeper classes that is clearance of waiting list . if it is not done all efforts like bullet & other trains will proved futile . since after taking charge of train it appears that you have restricted yourself for name and fame and giving facility for higher class only . i would also like to suggest you that compartment reserved for ladies may be converted into full bogie in all trains where in senior citizen traveling ALONE for small destination may also take shelter .
