It could be a scene straight out of science fiction: a young lady and her daughter walk up to a machine, key in a few commands on the touch screen, swipe a card and lo, their food arrives on a conveyor belt!
Only just that this did not take place in some megalopolis of the future, but in Chennai’s Koyambedu bus stand, where the machine competes with several eateries at the terminus and roadside food vendors to win over the customer’s palate.
