Here's how people reacted to the viral video:

An individual wrote, "That's why I don't eat anything that is cooked in railways or stations. Either i take my own food or just buy packaged snacks. I will fast for the day if I don't have anything."

A second said, "I never trust train food. If needed only order from highly rated restaurants on IRCTC E-catering."

A third commented, "That's why I always advice everyone to bring your own meal irrespective of the AC tier you're travelling in."

"Never order on IRCTC instead sleep with a hungry stomach but never order. Home cooked food is the best," posted a fourth.

A fifth added, "Oh God. No wonder my wife and daughter are recovering after having food served by IRCTC during a visit to Bangalore last week. We have decided not to order food or tea for our future journeys."
