The word “dabbawala” in the Indian language when literally translated, means “one who carries a box”. “Dabba” means a box (usually a cylindrical tin , brass or aluminium container).
This extra large tiffin or Dabba is a vintage, handcrafted in brass containing 4 compartments for Indian Bread, rice, lentils and vegetables not forgetting handwritten messages from a loved one at home.
The smaller round compartment with a cover on top of the compartments is usually for pickles or a digestive.
Believe it or not, the dabbawalas of Bombay ( Mumbai ) who have been delivering lunches to working people since the last 125 years are recognised as delivering 6 sigma level of accuracy in their Dabba delivery ie which means only 1 mistake in 6 million deliveries.
