Is it Bhaaji or is it Pudding? … passenger complaint letter

March 26, 2009


In my ongoing quest to find classics, to link-to from my blog… this one is going to be hard to beat. So without further ado, here is (written to Richard Branson of the Virgin fame) perhaps,

the world’s best passenger complaint letter?

The link is dedicated to all of us road-warriors who can relate and LOL.

ROTFLMAO and then some.

    This is funny. However, I would not go so far to say it is the “world’s best passenger complaint letter”. That credit would have to be given to Mr. Okhilchandra who wrote the following letter in 1909 to railway authorities describing his “suffering”. The letter resulted in installation of toilets in trains. The letter is on display at the Railway Museum in New Delhi. It was also reproduced under the caption “Travelers’ Tales” in the Far Eastern Economic Review.

    “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 platform. 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 honor to make big fine on that guard for public sake. Otherwise I am making big report to papers.”

    On popular demand, I am adding a link to the other very famous complaint letter sent to NTL (the UK Cable Co). The brits sure have a way with words!
