As I’m a foodie and also interested in technology, I was really surprised when I was invited recently to the launch of something called Vaya. I was wondering what it is. I was told it’s going to improve my life! I got to know that it’s a revolution in lunch gear. I thought of checking it out at the wonderful ITC Gardenia hotel in Bangalore. I was assured that from that day on wards, I would be assured of Piping hot meals – curries, dals, soft rotis; all, served from elegant tiffin boxes that are soon going to be the order of the day.
