From Mumbai Lunch box to Dubai Conference

Today this post won't be on share market or any company but on one of the unique organizations which wonders the big business tycoons. The legendary dabbawalas (lunch-box carriers) in Mumbai, known for their management skills, will feature in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) conference to be held in Dubai on June 4 and 5.


Like time and tide, Mumbai dabbawalas (tiffin carriers) wait for none. That's how they are able to make 16 million deliveries per day. Their management skills have won over the likes of Prince Charles and Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic.
Mumbai's 5,000-odd dabbawalas have been in action for over 125 years now, without any work stoppages and have now become a part of Mumbai's culture. They deliver nearly 2,00,000 lunches everyday and on time, without any technological support. They have also been awarded an ISO certification for accuracy.

This service originated in 1880. In 1890, Mahadeo Havaji Bachche and Ananth Mandra Reddy started a lunch delivery service with about a hundred men. In 1930, he informally attempted to unionize the dabbawallas. Later, a charitable trust was registered in 1956 under the name of Nutan Mumbai Tiffin Box Suppliers Trust. The commercial arm of this trust was registered in 1968 as Mumbai Tiffin Box Supplier's Association. The current president of the association is Raghunath Medge

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I leave a comment each time I like a article on a site or I have something to add to the
conversation. Usually it's caused by the passion displayed in the article I looked at. And on this post "From Mumbai Lunch box to Dubai Conference". I was actually excited enough to post a leave a responsea response :) I actually do have a few questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at other places, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you list every one of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
