Last Chance Saloon
by Marian Keyes
Best friends since the days when legwarmers were cool, Tara, Katherine, and Fintan have survived small-town ennui, big-city heartbreak, and endless giddy nights out on the town. But now that they've graduated to their slightly more serious thirties, only Fintan has what can honestly be called a "love life." With Tara struggling daily with her eternal diet -- and her dreadful, penny-pinching boyfriend -- and Katherine keeping her single existence as ordered as her drawer full of matching bra and panty sets, it seems they'll never locate the exit door out of the "last chance saloon."But it's always when you are least ready for change that fate insists on one. And when catastrophe inevitably follows crisis, the lives of three best friends are sure to change in unexpected ways...and not necessarily for the worse.

Mumbai's Dabbawala: The Uncommon Story Of The Common Man
by Shobha Bondre
It is a stupendous feat of co-ordination, efficiency, honesty and sheer hard work: Mumbai's dabbawalas deliver 200,000,meals to office-goers and return the tiffin boxes back to their homes in a span of three hours, on a daily basis. Their clockwork precision and incredibly low error-rate has got the world to sit up and take note of this awesome army of 5000 men who carry forward a 120-year-old tradition.

They have made the headlines several times in the last few years: when they were accorded the Six Sigma status, when Prince Charles met up with them in Mumbai, when they were invited to London to attend the royal wedding. Today the Mumbai Dabbawala system is the subject of management studies by experts and students all over the world.

How does this giant tandem bike work.

Who are these men and what are their lives like.

What are the challenges in delivering these meals on wheels.

How does their Association hold it all together.

Narrated alternately by the man who has taken it all forward, President of their Association, Raghunath Medge, and by researcher-author Shobha Bondre, the story unfolds in all its many hues the struggles, the triumphs; the questions, the solutions; the urban, the rural; the personal dreams and the collective reality of Mumbai's amazing Dabbawalas.
