Dabbawallas

The delivery of home-cooked lunch in what are called tiffin tins is a daily tradition in India’s bustling commercial capital, Mumbai.

Workers leaving for work early in the morning get lunch cooked by their wives delivered to their offices, thanks to so-called dabbawallas.

About 5,000 men earn their livings through this delivery system. Every day, 200,000 boxes travel through the city on bikes and trains.

Incredible.
