Why the track is a bit tilted at the bends or turns ?

Sir, its called "Banking Angle", this is so b'coz if the track is flat, because of the train speed it may derail, in order to maintain balance the Train from derailing, track is set like that at the bends or turnings.

And the force acting in this process is called centrifugal force.

Technically , if the banking angle is not there, the outer wheel flange shall skip or jump over the rail, due to force applied on it while taking turn at higher speeds. The banking angle is kept , so that the force is divided between the 2 wheels on axle
