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.

“I don’t want a rainbow… Rainbows have too many colors and none of them receive the appreciation they deserve…

I’d prefer a fading red or a striking golden, a shimmery silver or a sober blue… Ruling the sunset sky alone!”

[Mahindra adventure]

Mahindra Adventure is a unique experiential marketing unit of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. It started with our first off-road outing in 1996 when we started with a couple of events a year. With the inception of Mahindra Adventure in 2011, we truly began perfecting the art of getting lost. Since then every year, we’ve been giving people trips of a lifetime, be it the single-day off-road adventure – Great Escape or the multi-day expeditions to the most beautiful places in India and abroad.

We pioneered “the arrive and drive” concept and to help us bring you the Mahindra experience, we maintain a fleet of over 100 vehicles stationed all over the country. With over 7 expeditions spanning the length and breadth of the country, there’s no driving holiday worth its salt that we haven’t covered. Tour the Himalayas with the Monastery Escape or take the paths less known at the Spiti Escape. Get treated like maharajas in royal Rajasthan with the Royal Escape or cross borders by road in the TriNation Escape. If fun is on your mind, the Authentic Goa is just for you. If exploring is your mantra, try the Authentic NorthEast. And if dirt is your game, the Great Escape and Off-Road Trophy are your fix. There’s something for everyone !”      Select your adventure HERE
