How does a five-dish nutritious home-cooked hot meal delivered at your doorstep for 50 cents sound? For me, it was a Godsend. I had most dinners delivered and if I had other plans, I'd call and cancel--very convenient. The Tiffin or Dhubba Carrier is a lunchbox, usually made of steel, stacked 2 to 5 levels high. It is a time-tested food delivery system in India. In Mumbai, suburban families send home-cooked food to office-working relatives by bicycle and rikshaw through delivery teams known as dhubbawallahs. Management experts and the Harvard Business School have studied this amazingly efficient yet low-tech system of on-time product delivery with near-perfect accuracy in a poor setting. Most Indian cities have them so inquire & enjoy.
