First, dive into the world of Dabba Walas, the dedicated food delivery experts who transport lunches to Mumbai's offices. Experience this unique role firsthand by picking up and delivering a Tiffin box, learning to sort the lunch boxes and executing a delivery with a delivery guy itself. Next, venture to the iconic Dhobi Ghat, an open-air laundry that washes over a million clothes daily. Witness the fascinating process of clothes being cleaned amidst the bustling environment. From there, our exploration continues to Dharavi, Asia's largest slum, where industrious locals engage in a spectrum of activities. Here, observe the innovative recycling processes for plastic, paper, alluminum, along with thriving leather and clothing industries. Immerse yourself in the intricate fabric of daily life as you explore schools, colleges, bustling markets, and residential areas. Experience the authenticity of local transportation by journeying via Mumbai's local train network, occasionally complemented by taxis or buses. To conclude this immersive tour, savour a traditional local lunch with a welcoming family, embracing the genuine hospitality and flavours of Mumbai. Experience the city not as a tourist, but as a part of its vibrant local culture.
