Mahindra Navistar - Life at the Highway Dhaba

Posted on Friday, October 21, 2011

We all are accustomed with the term “Dhaba”, the name itself teases our senses. These are local open restaurants dotting the highways in rustic scenery and have a native aroma to them. The Dhabas range along the Indian Highways from the extreme stretches of the North, to the warmest coasts of the South. Small and Large Dhabas have sprung up along the highways, providing cheap & tasty traditional Indian food. They offer the best choices when it comes to lip-smacking variety of Indian culinary delights.

Dhabas are not only a stop for food for the truck drivers. They certainly are a resting place for the truckers. The cozy & comforting ‘khats’ at the Dhaba and amenities such as washrooms & bathing facilities gives the truck driver a ‘Home’ away from home. On every route, truckers have their fixed stops at Dhabas where they rest & eat food. The truck drivers share a unique level of comfort with the Dhaba owners and their staff. There is a confident & special bond of friendship between the Dhabas & trucker drivers.

Few years back, people used to think of a Dhaba as an unhealthy place in the open, loaded with files, and selling cheap food. However that belief is no longer valid as Dhabas are a lot better these days. Times have changed to a point where Dhabas aren't really looked down upon. People today eat at Dhabas and appreciate the tantalizing foodstuff. So nowadays it's not just the truck drivers but also a variety of populaces from collegians to families are seen enjoying the food at a famous Dhaba.

But all things aren’t easy for the Dhaba owners. The inflation is certainly pushing them backwards. Also a major concern of safety & security at the highways Dhabas trouble the Dhaba owners.

We share along a video – ‘Life at the Highway Dhaba’ - which is a collaborative effort of Mahindra Navistar and Zee news to recognize and appreciate the effort taken by a highway Dhabas to feed the travellers on the highway.

This video brings more such interesting insights into the ‘Life at a highway Dhaba’:

Mesmerize yourself with every bite that goes into your mouth and count your blessings. No matter where you come from and who you are, fact is that there is nothing that can outperform a meal containing of a parantha, dal makhani, murg makhani and an extra-large glass of lassi.

So the next time you travel on the highway, make a point to visit the very own ‘Highway Dhaba’.

This initiative is taken by Mahindra Navistar under Mahindra Navistar Excellence Awards to recognize and reward Outperformance, Excellence, Innovation and Change Leadership in the Indian Trucking Industry.
