    This letter in original is on display at the Railway Museum in New Delhi. It was also reproduced under the caption Travellers Tales in the Far Eastern Economic Review.

    Any guesses why this letter is of Historic Value?
    It led to the introduction of TOILETS in trains in India.

    So no idea is stupid and
