Virgin Group Chairman , Sir Richard Branson Visits Dabbawalas

After the much talked about visit of Prince Charles , Sir Richard Branson , the chairman of Virgin group , visited Dabbawalas. He actually traveled with us in local train from Dadar station to Churchgate station in a typical Dabbawala dress , carrying tiffin box means for Virgin Atlantis employees.
When reporters asked him  as why he was traveling with Dabbawalas , then he replied - "I want to travel with Dabbawalas because I want to get myself photographed with Dabbawalas. I will keep my photograph with Dabbawalas in my head office in London and will tell my employees that if you want to work then work as Dabbawalas otherwise do not work at all."
Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson (born 18 July 1950) is an English business magnate, best known for his Virgin brand of over 360 companies. Branson's first successful business venture was at age 16, when he published a magazine called Student. He then set up a record mail-order business in 1970. In 1972, he opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores and rebranded as zavvi in late 2007. With his flamboyant and competitive style, Branson's Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s - as he set up Virgin Atlantic Airways and expanded the Virgin Records music label. Richard Branson is the 245th richest person according to Forbes' 2008 list of billionaires as he has an estimated net worth of approximately $2.8 billion USD.
