And I never knew Mumbai could be so silent – it was like a different world inside the car. It was a solemn race too. We have a very well developed organization here; one that many say is impossible to clobber. But somehow the XJ won! The navigation system was a big help, but we were also fortuitous because the other Dabbawalla got stuck with a rare sequence delay.’
