Gone are the days, when people travelling in all classes on Indian trains had to rely upon those foods served by the in-train caterers or the vendors selling on the platform. Both are found to be made of poor quality ingredients, badly cooked and not at all hygienic. There were many instances of people complaining about poor quality food being served on trains and even a good number of them falling sick, facing death.
Need for good food during train travel
Although with time, the trains have been modernized and the coal based engines have been replaced with diesel and electric ones, the journey is still a long one and may take a day or more, depending upon the location to be covered. Carrying along home cooked food for such long distances can be practically impossible, as it is bound to get spoilt due to changing temperature and weather patterns of the region that the train passes by. At the same time, it is not possible for the travelers including the seniors, children, pregnant women and those who are sick to reach their destination starving. This will only create further problems. A better option here will be to avail Food in Train from one of the reputed portals.
