The meal resembles an in-flight meal, with the one photographed most certainly being veg. There's rice, dal, a vegetable, a bun, salad, a sweet and a butter chiplet.
Replying to Goenka's tweet, the official Twitter handle of the Taj Hotels thanked him over the compliment. Calling his words kind, the Taj Hotels stated that it is their honour to serve people in the time of crisis.
