Mumbai’s Dabbawalla: The Uncommon Story Of The Common Man
Mumbai’s Dabbawalla: The Uncommon Story Of The Common Man
Description
About the Book

Mumlais Dobbawala is the uncommon story of a common man whose existence plays a crucial rote in making the wheels of India’s financial capital turn smoothly. They may be a tiny cog in the machine but the intrepid dabbawalas of Mumbai deliver 200,000 meals every day from homes to offices within three hours. Their clockwork precision and incredibly low error rate has got the world to sit up and take note of this awesome army of 5000 men, who make sure office-goers get a hot, home-cooked meal every day, come rain or shine. It is a stupendous feat of coordination, efficiency, honesty and sheer hard work that could teach many a corporate honcho a lesson or two in running a business successfully.

The story is narrated alternately by the man who has made it happen — Raghunath Medge, president of the Dabbawalas Association, and the author Shobha Bondre

About the Author

Shobha Bondre is a celebrated and much-published Mararhi writer. She has been writing for the last 25 years and has published 15 books, many of them bestsellers that have gone into over 75 editions.

The non-Marathi reading world is now keen to read her works and her books are being translated into English, Hindi and Gujarati. She has written articles, short stories and columns for prestigious publications like Maharashtra Times, Loksana, Lokprabha, Maher and Kirloskar. She has also written dialogues for many popular Marathi TV serials like Abhalmaya, Manasi, Oon Paaus and 14rclhangini.

In the last few years, profiling people from various walks of life has become Shobha’s forte. For this, she interacts closely with her subjects, understanding them in their social, familial, emotional and economic settings.

She has won many literary awards for her work, including the Maharashtra State Award for Best Novel in 1997, for Saata Samudrapar.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
