Overview

Booking only for at least 2 people.

DABBAWALA: A dabbawala (one who carries the lunch box), is a person in the Indian city of Mumbai whose job is to carry and deliver freshly made food from home in lunch boxes to office workers. Although the service remains essentially low-tech, with the barefoot delivery men as the prime movers, the success of the system depends on teamwork and time management. Such is the dedication and commitment of the barely literate and barefoot delivery men. A simple color-coding system doubles as an ID system for the destination and recipient. There are no multiple elaborate layers of management either — just three layers. Each dabbawala is also required to contribute a minimum capital in kind, in the shape of two bicycles, a wooden crate for the tiffin-boxes, white cotton kurta-pajamas, and the white trademark Gandhi topi (cap).

Dhobighat: A unique feature of Mumbai, the dhobi is a traditional laundryman, who will collect your dirty linen, wash it, and return it neatly pressed to your doorstep. All for a pittance. The "laundries" are called "ghats": row upon row of concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. The clothes are soaked in sudsy water, thrashed on the flogging stones, then tossed into huge vats of boiling starch and hung out to dry. Next, they are ironed and piled into neat bundles, almost two hundred dhobis and their families work together in what has always been a hereditary occupation.

Mahim Station: The east flank of the Mahim Station is dominated by the plastic and metal recycling catacombs of the 13th compound. It is amazing to see the heavy machinery’s melting and molding the plastic pellets for toys and button manufacturers producing Barbie Dolls of India. The delicious aroma from tiny bakeries and sweet shops, the exotic smell of soaps and cosmetics creates new magical incense, one can feel instantaneously. The dime-sized cyber cafes, mass-producing tailors, altar shapers and the children waving from the precipitous balconies are the most happening in slums that qualifies an active show and tell.

Kumbhar Wada: Khumbarwada area is the place occupied by the potter’s community from Gujarat, the origin habitat of Dharavi zone, they set up their communal clay pits and kilns in 1930. where the mud wells and kilns portray the story of struggle and hardships with each round of the potter’s wheel and unfurl the luster of this region. Come and had a look at what you can’t experience at any other place other than Brazil's Favelas and India's Dharavi.
