the lunch that is provided is not exactly for the poor.. anyone, you, me, the rich, the poor; everyone can go and eat. lunch is made in huge quantities..it starts at 11:00 am and ends around 5 pm.. so you can imagine. i too was standing in the line to eat the famous khichudi and labda
(bengali specialties) that are served. Let me tell you-it was amazingly delicious...
take care and wish you a happy diwali
