Introduction: The Dabbawalla’s are the people in charge of delivering the food to the workers across the city at lunchtime. They normally wear white clothes so it’s easy to identify them and they use public transport. The effectiveness of the Dabbawalla’s is so outstanding that several important business schools have carried out studies about the way they are organized. I met this guy in the street and he was very nice to spent few minutes with me (normally they are not allowed to do it).
