Blog: Woman’s Lib a mixed blessing in Mumbai

Catherine Sleep | 27 August 2004

Interesting article here about a female tiffin carrier in Mumbai (Bombay). I was in India last year and extolled at length the virtues of this most complex of logistical networks, which delivers some 200,000 lunches every day from the home to the office, enabling office workers to enjoy their family food without making the journey back out to the suburbs.

You can read more about tiffin carriers by clicking here, or follow the hyperlink below to find out what life is like for one of the very few ladies who work as a tiffin carrier. Flipping hard, by the sounds of it.

Happy weekend.
