Mumbai Dabbawallas Join India’s Republic Day Parade:
There are four days remaining until Republic Day in India. On January 26, India will celebrate it’s 60th year of being a republic. As happens every year, thousands of people will line Delhi’s central Rajpath avenue to catch sight of the spectacular Republic Day parade. This year, Mumbai’s dabbawallas will feature in the parade. If you’re familiar with the dabbawallas, you’ll know what an integral part of Mumbai they are. The 5,000 dabbawallas accurately deliver around 200,000 lunch boxes of freshly cooked food to the city’s office workers every day. The system started operating in 1890, with only 35 workers. It’s now internationally recognized. The dabbawallas will perform a skit in the parade, demonstrating how a box of food gets from one far-flung part of Mumbai to another.
