The Dabbawallas of Mumbai, famed for the impeccable team work, time management and delivery record, are striking work today for the first time in 120 years. This to support the Jan Lokpal bill by Anna Hazare (a social activist who has galvanized the nation) which is hoped to bring corruption under control.
The Dabbawallas, about 5000 in number, cater to nearly 200,000 residents of Mumbai and deliver lunches from their homes in the suburbs to their offices every day. They are reputed to make less than one mistake (average) in 6 million deliveries and have never interrupted their service, be it for weather or some other reason.
Oh India. Sometimes your people make me all teary with their heart.
