Difficulty in booking train tickets

Hi

I am overseas and i need to book a ticket frm madurai to trivandrum. But using the irtc site, its asking me to register and asking for an indian cell. I dont hv an indian cell. So how can i book a train ticket while i am overseas? Do i need to go to a travel agent? Any solutions?

Even after attempting the method described here if you cannot book a ticket then contact an agent

Oh no...ahhahaa!

Thats crazy! All that trouble?

To book train tickets....!

I think it will be easier to pay just a little extra to book a ticket with an agent. Do you know anyone in chennai who can do this for me? as well as maybe arrange cars for me to travel inside chennai and outstation?
