You need a cell phone to get anything done with the IRCTC or Cleartrip (booking and boarding trains). It's funny to see everyone whipping out their phones to look at their compartment/berth # as they board these ancient looking trains that look like they are about to explode.

There are many, many capable and highly intelligent Indians, there's just far too great a population to be able to organize a reasonably functional society. That's what makes India so worthwhile to visit, it's just a trip full of 'WTF?'s.
