Till last year this train was dark spot for the name of rajdhani. Dirty coach, poor tasteless food and rude attendents. Last year i promised myself not to travel again in this train.
But this month unwillingly had to travel in this train as purushottam was damn full and regret.
Just as i reached near the H1 coach with my heavy luggage, the attendent asked me for my cabin number and happily helped me to reach my seat. I was surprised by this humble nature.
First

shock for me was the pleasant scent of room freshner that i got after boarding the coach H1. Just as train departed NDLS, T.T.E came. He was very humble and polite. I was in a cabin and with me a old group of uncles were travelling. We were given welcome snack and a water bottle was provided. It comprised of 2 eclairs and a marie gold packet with a mango juice. I asked for some other drink in place mango juice. He politely replaced it with a coke can.
Just after some time evening tea came. It comprised of: Eclairs toffee, Fresh juice/Coke or Pepsi in can, Roasted Dry fruit Cashewnut, Vegetable Patties,Cheese /vegetable sandwich triangle,Good quality besan ka ladoo,Tomato Sauce sachet along with Tea/Coffee.
Then at about 2000 hr tomato soup with butter was brought.
Dinner was served. I asked for veg food as i was having a bit of less trust on the type of chicken/fish IR would serve.
It consisted basmati rice, dal tadka, mutter paneer , roti or parantha, pickle and curd. All this was given in ceramic utensils. No disposable type utensil was given. The paneer dish was delicious and fresh. You can ask for extra roti or rice to the pantry as after serving dinner he will make round and ask you if anything else you need. After that at about 2145-2200 hr, Vanilla Ice cream served. It was of barista company.
AC vents were all working good and a RPF attended was present in the bogie with the attendent and he was checking the whole bogie. At CNB he deboarded and boarded the guard's van. I think he travelled till KGP in the guard's van as per night duty.
Early morning tea was served at 0600hr and it was same as of evening tea.
Breakfast was served way before kharagpur. It was bread slices, cornflakes,butter and jam. For veg it was veg cutlet or paneer cutlet along with finger chips whereas for non veg it was cheese ommlette or normal egg ommlette. Tea/coffee was again served with juice and biscuits.
My timing at BLS was 1200 hr so i was not entitled for lunch.
While deboarding, the attendent came and happily helped me to carry my 3 trolley laguagge till the door. He helped me alighting the train at BLS. After alighting he asked for some tip and i would say i have to give him as after all he helped me to board and deboard the train both at delhi and balasore.
