    Finally some good news for all those people travelling on IR and being on the mercy of the pantry or the food vendors on the station.
    A Delhi based entrepreneur has started a Meals on Wheels concept for serving piping hot food, of your choice during your next train Journey.

    Hat's off to Mr.Pushpinder Singh for coming up with this new venture.

    I remember that Bikanerwala had this arrangement at Nagpur Station for a long time. In Delhi Comesum is also offering a similar offering.

    My usual Jaipur-Delhi double decker is non-stop between Jaipur and Delhi :p
    May be some other time.

    How is the Train. Is it comfortable. The only problem is the timing, I believe it leaves Delhi in the afternoon.

    Only moderately comfortable but given the not so high fare, it is doable. Best thing is, it saves time.
    Leaves Jaipur around 6 in the morning, reaches Gurgaon by 9:35 AM and Delhi by 10:10 AM. I get to attend my office and don't have to travel overnight.
    Leaves Delhi around 5:55 PM and reaches Jaipur around 10 PM.

    I have not tried Bikanerwala but Comesum's outlet here overcrowds the platform when any long-distance train is about to leave. People go out of control to grab their packed food. I sometimes take Duronto to Mumbai & that train has no pantry! So its always better to have some options.

    So for people like me who travel from Delhi it is not a good option. Maybe I will use it next time I stay overnight in Jaipur.

    Delhi - Jaipur by road is a nightmare.

    Delhi-Jaipur road is better, but the return journey is nightmare. The condition of the road from Behrore till Manesar, one feels as if we were driving on the moon's surface.

    Very commendable compared with this:

    Amtrak Losing Millions Each Year on Food Sales

    And AMTRAK's food prices seem absurdly high.
