If a person was told that he will be a given something which will outmatch the rest, then naturally his expectations and the intensity increases exponentially regarding that. It was the same with a 24
Nice report, Sourav, made interesting reading of your observations. If there is variety and taste on on-board catering, it will auger well for the current trend of AC trains and catering services and people would happily munch and won't mind paying a few pennies extra. The major grouse is about maintenance and poor and mundane taste.
As usual you were spot on sir. The food offered in Rajdhani needs to be transfigured at the earliest , IR can charge few bucks more , It wont be a problem. A person is ready to travel in a Rajdhani means it infers that he wont mind to shell out more for food.
Once again a superb show by both the King and Sourav..:)
dai .. enna vachi comedy keemedy pannalaye !!!!!
ada paavi... I praised you.. and you tell this... :O:O
Really awsome narration da..!! But apart from food why didn't take other pics like Railway station of Coach interiors etc etc... ?
I was just mesmerized with the speed to the core , i did not even have a moment to think about the interiors and others , i was just looking outside, nothing was running in my mind. .. And yes , i snapped the pics of food just to irritate u :P:P
Apart form the Non-veg part.. I am getting irritated seeing the Veg food...:@:@:@

Best train to travel from Mumbai to Ahmedabad?
I would be travelling with luggage hence can't do much of railfanning. Also suggest the class of travel.
Gujarat Mail ...Class:1 AC
try for ADI duronto in 1A
ADI Duronto since there would be luggage, 2A must be a good choice.
Cost of ticket.
1A is too costlier nowadays.
2A is still reasonable.
Place for keeping d luggage is no different in 1A or 2A in cabin of 4 people.
I have never traveled in a Duronto, what better than ADI Duronto and even Guj mail looks great after going through the train blog.
Final call guys:
ADI Duronto or Gujarat Mail?
Thanks everyone for your prompt reply. I really appreciate it.
Duronto I would say.
Gujarat Mail also is excellent train.
But Duronto since less travel time and only end-to-end passengers, no disturbance of sleep by co-passengers who want to alight enroute.
Also ticket availability will be a factor.
There are 21 pairs of Rajdhani Trains running at present.
After the introduction of Duronto trains in 2010 by the then Rail Minister, Mamata Banerjee, everyone thought that this train would lose its priority.
But honestly saying and asking, that these trains have been able to keep pace with the Duronto and Premium Trains.
Moreover, a #Duronto train is a second option for a passenger, #Rajdhani train at first.
Very few Duronto trains are able to run with great popularity like Mumbai Duronto, Howrah Duronto, Allahabad Duronto, Chennai Duronto.
