The delivery of home-cooked lunch in what are called tiffin tins is a daily tradition in India’s bustling commercial capital, Mumbai.
Workers leaving for work early in the morning get lunch cooked by their wives delivered to their offices, thanks to so-called dabbawallas.
About 5,000 men earn their livings through this delivery system. Every day, 200,000 boxes travel through the city on bikes and trains.
Al Jazeera’s Casey Kauffman follows one such meal from kitchen to lunch table.
