TIPPING

by Amitu

Depending on the service rendered, 5% of the total cost is appropriate. There is a service charge of 10% in most up-market hotels. While hiring taxis or autos, there is no need for tipping since they are all run according to metres. If you wish, tip at your discretion.

BOMBAY DUCK (yuck!)

by mariocibelli

In 1997 Bombay Duck was banned by the European Commission (EC) of the European Union. Bombay Duck is a delicacy eaten as an accompaniment to curry. It is dried fish that is usually served fried. It has an acquired pungent taste adored by curry lovers.

The EC admitted that it had no "sanitary" evidence against the product and the UK Public Health Laboratory Service confirmed that there are no recorded cases of food poisoning, or bacterial contamination, associated with Bombay Duck. It was been banned because the EC only allows fish imports from India from approved freezing and canning factories. Bombay Duck is not produced in factories.

A day with the Mumbai's Dabbawalas

by rjogadiya


In 1998, Forbes Global magazine, conducted a quality assurance study on the Dabbawalas operations and gave it a Six Sigma efficiency rating of 99.999999; the Dabbawalas made one error in six million transactions. That put them on the list of Six Sigma rated companies, along with multinationals like Motorola and GE.

Achieving this rating was no mean feat, considering that the Dabbawalas did not use any technology or paperwork, and that most of them were illiterate or semiliterate.

The dabbawala service is 113 years old and operates with an efficiency and punctuality, hard to beat. Forbes magazine gave the system a "6 sigma" rating for precision, its accuracy being 99.99 per cent! The documentary on the Mumbai dabbawala shown on the BBC channel was a hit.

No wonder, Britain's Prince Charles wanted to meet the men who formed the system.

Early Damage

by keeweechic

Unfortunately most of the sculptures were apparently damaged by the Portuguese during the 16th century when they were used as target practice. Some were even destroyed completely. Hard to believe that anyone could wilfully destroy such treasures. In later years, some have also been damaged through carelessness by those visiting the caves.

Location : Elephanta Island
