The famous dabbawalas
or tiffin carriers of Mumbai will be celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in a special way. A few days back they had announced that they are going to distribute sweets to relatives of patients at the government-run Tata Memorial Hospital, KEM Hospital and Wadia Hospital. And now they have a new surprise for the couple. They have gone shopping! For Prince Harry, they bought the famous Kolhapuri “pheta
“- a traditional Maharashtrian turban and a Paithani saree for actor Meghan Markle.
The dabbawalas took a break from their routine of going around offices on cycles laden with lunch boxes, and went shopping in the Lalbaug area of central Mumbai. They chose a saffron-coloured pheta for the young prince, at whose father’s wedding, they were among the invitees.
“We brought traditional wedding presents for the royal couple today,” Subhash Talekar, spokesperson of the Mumbai Dabbawala Association told PTI.
