The bus booked was by Universal travels. The bus was not the bus earmarked. They shifted us, myself and my wife to another bus. The bus left by 10.55 pm only but from the beginning it was having problem. The engine was overheating and hence every half hour, the bus stopped to water the radiator. There was substantial delay from the arrival time of 7 am, we arrived at Karaikal, not the destination, by 10.30 am next day,. We were told to go by some other means. Please do not go by Universal travels, if you want to go to Tirukadaiyur, pl go by train/ bus to Cuddalore and go that way. The road will be also better. The driver went bumping and bumping, we could not even sit on our seats. The seat nos reserved were changed.
