Rugs washed every two months!

rail The Indian mentality is to adjust to any discomfort to the maximum. Hence it is not a difficult thing for him to adjust himself when he learns that the rug he uses while travelling in an AC compartment of Indian Railways is washed every two months. When it stinks he puts a hanky at his nose and contents himself that the rug is not washed annually! While answering members’ questions about cleanliness in the railways, the minister of state for Railways Manoj Sinha said that the rugs in the AC compartments are washed every two months. The Rajya Sabha member Hamid Ansari intervened to comment that it is better for the railway passengers to get their own rugs. The only saving grace is that pillow covers and blankets are washed daily.
