Distribution Management at Nutan Mumbai Tiffin Box Suppliers Association

History of Dabbawalas:- The word "Dabbawala" in Marathi when literally translated means "one who carries a box". "Dabba" means a box (usually a cylindrical tin or aluminium container), while "wala" is a suffix, denoting a doer or holder of the preceding word. The closest meaning of the Dabbawala in English would be the "lunch box delivery man". Though this profession seems to be simple, it is actually a highly specialized service in Mumbai which is over a century old and has become integral to the cultural life of this city. The concept of the dabbawala originated when India was under British rule. Many British people who came to the colony did not like the local food, so a service was set up to bring lunch to these people in their workplace straight from their home. Nowadays, although Indian business men are the main customers for the dabbawalas, increasingly affluent families employ them instead for lunch delivery to their school-aged children. Even though the services provided might include cooking, it primarily consists of only delivery either home-made or in that latter case, food ordered from a restaurant. The dabbawala originated when a person named Mahadeo Havaji Bachche started the lunch delivery service with about 100 men. Nowadays, Indian businessmen are the main customers for the dabbawalas, and the service often includes cooking as well as delivery. For over 115 years these lunch deliverymen who were subsequently started to be called Dabbawalas have been collecting lunch packed in three or two-tier metal boxes (called dabbas) from subscribers' homes and delivering them to their workplaces. Today the 5,000 Dabbawalas make about 200,000 lunch deliveries in the city and have become famous for their clockwork precision and efficiency.

Behavioral study of TCP Tahoe, Reno, New-Reno Vegas, and Lite

Comparing to wired networks, there are many different characteristics in wireless environments, such as higher error rate, longer delay, lower bandwidth, frequent mobility and so on, which makes TCP congestion control mechanisms not directly suitable for wireless networks, and many improved TCP congestion control mechanisms have been presented. The main goal of these mechanisms was to successfully manage congestion, reliably handle loss, and minimize transmission errors. In this paper, we analyze and compare the different congestion control and avoidance mechanisms which have been proposed for TCP/IP protocols, namely: Tahoe, Reno, New-Reno, Lite, TCP Vegas and SACK. Study of these variants provides guidelines for improved congestion and corruption control in mobile ad-hoc network
