No you can not travel without original counter ticket. Because if you are booked ticket through counter then its mandatory to carry original ticket otherwise you will be fined as without ticket passenger.
However you can try to take duplicate ticket by giving an application to the nearest reservation counter or station authority they may then provide you duplicate ticket. You will have to pay the amount for duplicate ticket as per given below :

Without original ticket traveling not allowed. Always carry the ticket message or print.

No, that’s not valid. One has to show original counter tickets otherwise TTE can charge full penalty.

Ek option hai ki aap PNR yaad kar lijiye aur jab TTE aayenge aap I-card dikhaiye aur PNR sunaiye.

Disclaimer : This is NOT a ‘legal’ method but it can save you trouble if you have no other option.

Main har baar PNR yaad karke train par chadhta hun (eticket ka SMS ya print rehta hai mere paas) lekin aaj tak kabhi TTE-ne proof nahi maanga. Wo soch lete hain ki sawaari ko sahee PNR yaad hai, toh genuine hi hoga.

That’s not the permanent solution dude. Kai TTE bahut akdu hote hai.
