    Re: travelling by or in

    Indian Railways is the official name of the railway system there.

    '. . .travelling by Indian Railways' is correct.

    You could also say '. . .while travelling by train in India' or '. . .when travelling on Indian trains'.

    But what are we supposed to think about?

    It's a joke that passes around in my country on how the tea is prepared which they sell on railway stations(it(the joke) is written on a photo).

    Think possibly means that it is up to you to drink the tea after seeing how it is prepared.
