Thank you all
Yes, you are free to go slumming with the riff-raff who are not travelling in 1A.
It's all part of the adventure of travelling!

In 1AC you sit in a coupe with 2 or 4 seats. 2AC is also good and is available on most trains. You have more opportunities to interact with other passengers.

I believe one can move between all the coaches of the air con sections on a train, but the non air con section is blocked off from within the train, one can gain access to that section at platform stops.

In most of the trains that I have been, the pantry coach divides the AC section and the non AC section.

Though what you say is also possible.

It may be that I got confused too, maybe the unreserved section is closed off, rather than all the general sleeper section...

AC compartments are interconnected with a vestibule. Typically there is a pantry car or closed door between AC & non-AC coaches in most of the trains. However, there can be exceptions.

It is a good idea to be back to your seat when you are approaching a stoppage station with some wait time, to ensure full security of your luggage.
Did you wear the other person's shoe today?
