While daily there for an afternoon cup of strong and sweet chai, I just had to snap the activity that takes place in this little shack that always has a lineup waiting for the next batch.

After a month here I also felt like sweating a little for them, although it's obvious they are proud of their quality and popularity regardless. So I put this postcard together, printed a few 6 X 4 inches photos and handed them over. The surprise and joy were worth much more then the sum of minutes I put into this little production. In this case nobody was shy to ask for his photo to be included and I ended up producing a variety of collages to include every employee in the shop.

Ohh... if you happen to come around, prepare 6 Rupees for a glass. If you only have a 10 rupee note... better search for a single rupee coin so the cashier can spare you a 5 rupee coin for change - thats the way he likes it :)
