A day in the life at Sadarghat
The word “dabbawalah” , means “one who carries a box”. “Dabba” means a box (usually a cylindrical tin or aluminium container). The closest meaning of the dabbawala in English would be the “lunch box delivery man. And whats for lunch - we guess, pulses, vegetables, a small piece of mutton, about 4 chapatis and rice and don't forget the pickle.
