Sign of Occupied Seat in Train General Compartment

Train General Compartment is either next to the train engine or at the end of the train near guard compartment. It is for unreserved train ticket travelers. During the journey from Hospet to Hubli via Hyderabad Kolhapur express while sitting at unreserved upper berth I clicked this interesting photo. The passenger might be gone for toilet but to occupy his seat he kept a handkerchief and a water bottle. Interesting way to reserve seat. General compartment train journey I personally find one of the best way of traveling – cheaper and interesting but most of the time it is over-crowded. Maybe more general compartments required. What say?
