Mumbai`s famous dabbawalas are set to don a new role, as Govindas, to celebrate this year`s Gokulashthami, the birthday of Lord Krishna, a leader of a trust formed by the meal suppliers said here Sunday.
Craze for fast food and
growing trend among the youngsters to eat out have led to near

who deliver lunch boxes to over two lakh Mumbaikars every day.
Nearly 5,000 dabbawalas of Mumbai and thousands of farmers and farm widows of Vidarbha Friday extended their support to yoga guru Baba Ramdev`s proposed fast against corruption and black money from Saturday.
