I am a dabbawala

[great big story]

With a population of over 18 million people, Mumbai is one of the world’s largest megalopolises. To put it mildly, the city can be unpredictable. But amid the chaos, Mumbai has one thing that is nearly 100 percent reliable: your lunch delivery. The dabbawalas of Mumbai are an institution. Dabbawalas deliver homemade lunches to workers across Mumbai—nearly 200,000 of them per day. Crisscrossing side streets on bikes, balancing trays that weight almost 150 pounds on their heads, this group of 5,000 men helps define the city. But it’s not just the staggering quantity or exhaustive work that sets these guys apart; their 99.9% delivery accuracy and incredible efficiency is the envy of delivery services the world over.

One day I’ll fly away

One day I’ll fly away


 [John  Lewis]

One Day I’ll Fly Away

I follow the night
Can’t stand the light

One day I’ll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
What more can your love do for me
When will love be through with me
Why live life from dream to dream
And dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I’ll fly away!
Leave all this to yesterday!
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day when dreaming ends

The music is One Day I’ll Fly Away performed by Vaults, the original song was by Randy Crawford.  Find the track HERE
