Home Cooking

4,000 men transport 175,000 lunches daily to workers in Mumbai.  Mind-boggling to think about, isn't it?  What's even more interesting is that despite the arrival of Western fast food chains, the cliental base for their daily lunch delivery service remains strong.  How about you, do you eat lunch at the office?  I would normally buy ingredients to make my own meals each week, but if there were an affordable daily delivery service like this available, I'd take advantage of it.  There's just nothing like a home-cooked meal.
