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

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
