After watching inspector Ghote run into a couple of dabbawalas, I was reminded of an article I read on the BBC a few days ago. Apparently, the dabbawalas have gone online. Now, if you need your food delivered in Mumbai, all you need to do is go online to their web site at www.mydabbawala.com and sign up!
Here’s what the web site says about their operations:
5000 semi-literate Dabbawalas transport 1,75,000-boxes in a 3-hours period, through a 25-Km of public transportation involving multiple transfer points at six sigma level of quality!
