Useful items in hand luggage

There may be long stretches between the airplane and Ahmednagar when you won't have access to first-class hotels or restaurants. Because sanitation standards in India aren't always the same as those in the West, it's a wise precaution to pack some food and water in your hand-luggage. Bottled mineral water is readily available in Indian cities. Tap water is not safe to drink. Bring one or two snacks for each day of travel en route, and enough light meals to feed yourself if you plan to travel long distances by train or bus.
