Shipping Marvels

I am fascinated by the tiffin wallahs of Mumbai. The tiffin wallahs (or “dabbawallas”) pick up more than 175,000 lunches each day from the homes of the city’s office workers.  The tin lunchboxes used for transport are called “tiffins.” The service originated in the nineteenth century, and it uses a network of bicycle and rail transport.
