@monisha_rajesh About 8 pages with Kami Mata, Waiting for the Australians, Col. Barog’s tunnel, NRI, Shiv on Kaveri Exp & finally, train 80.
This Bangalore Rajdhani was a complete wreck during my last 2 journeys in April.
More improvements: Upgraded coaches, very neat & clean, prompt & polite service and food that’s served hot and no longer devoid of taste.
The Malaria Express aka The Terminator is a full on jugaad train with an MCD van+MCD bloke on a wagon spraying anti-larval stuff around NCR.
It’s Oct issue features, amongst others, excerpts from @monisha_rajesh’s travelogue ‘Around India in 80 Trains’ & a certain Malaria Express.

@aditya I get your funda here. I had something different in mind though. I’ll let you know if we ever get around to optimising the IK site.
@aditya Thanks for taking the time. I have a few ideas on reverting this to native scroll, but keen to see how you’ve tackled this.
@aditya Can you reload the page in a window less than ~970px wide (to disable custom scroll) and see if that dramatically reduces load?
@aditya Yup. No doubt that browser scrolling would’ve been ideal.
@aditya You’re right about the scroll/margins, but it works quite smoothly on my much older MBP. That’s why we didn’t optimise further.
@icashmir @B_Nazir Thanks! Ashvin Kumar did the hard work with his film. We just helped him bring that to the web. @souvikdg
