@kns008 Alright then Mawa Jalebi it is. Calling it simply Jalebi would be inaccurate. It is probably impossible to jalebis that texture.

@ap00rv Fog is the root cause, but once schedules go haywire the traffic pileup leads to more delays.

Why are the Indian Railways catering staff so reluctant to give coffee (in place of tea), even though it’s officially on the menu?
