Chai wala!

It’s been a while since anyone posted a picture of Lahore’s life. I thought I would share this photo of a chai wala (tea cafe), taken by a friend. This kid wears a beautiful smile all the time, is fun to talk to and salutes you whenever you pass by. The tea cafe belongs to his father and he only works in the evening, just in case if you’re wondering about child-labour. And he makes zabardast tea!

    Ye photo dekh kar bohot maza aaya hai! Existential therapy for the tired brain. Thanks for the little slice-of-life break.
