An Idea During Train Journey, Turned into a Startup Called “OMitra”

Few Days back, one of my friends Mr. Vikas & Mr. Srihari, was traveling in the train from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam to attend Seminar and he wanted to order food while traveling. Vikas searched on net and found one food vendor mobile number, who serves foods in train. He called him and asking if he can get any food in train at upcoming station at Kazipet. But as train was running so the network was intermittent and call disconnected, he tried multiple times but every time he start talking and in middle call disconnects, he spent 60 minutes on call but the order wasn’t completed . So they completed the journey bye eating biscuits in train. Mostly veg folks avoids food served in the train as quality is pathetic.
