Low tech but ultra modern

The BBC's day in pictures site is a favourite of mine. Listening to NPR as the only source of news leaves me a bit deprived on the visual front and I love the photographic selection of the day's events.

This picture of Bombay's dabbawalas waving their lunchboxes a few weeks ago made me think of my school days when we had lunch delivered in a multi-story stainless steel 'tiffin box'; but it also brought to mind the fact that their efficiency has been appreciated the world over, and modeled in a business school case. Tradition and modernity all rolled up in one - that's Bombay for you!
