A new chai hotel around the block, hai mar javaan

Posted on November 17, 2007. Filed under: Blogroll, Humour |

I have been alerted to the opening of a new chaikhanah going by the sinister sounding name Pak Tea House just around the block. And it was no newsmonger but one of the proprietors of the new place himself. I thought Raza Rumi was a decent person who came in once in a while because he liked my milkshake. Seems now he was measuring his competition. We have crossed paths a couple of times at Pakistaniat but nothing in his demeanor allerted me to this mini coup. Come to think of it, the news sounded more like an announcement. A challenge of sorts, if you will. Such challenges are routine in the world of a chai walah who has to compete with a dozen other vendors selling the same fragrant elixir on the same railway platform or bazaar. But these new guys are dangerous. I went to their new joint and it is shiny and upscale. Where we serve you by the half-sets, they have a proper tea service. Our desi biscut have nothin on their Danish delights. This Lahori Dagga is perplexed in the face of a team of highly educated smarts over there.

But fear not my chotas. I will be paying them regular visits to steal business secrets and will frequently pollute the sitting area with brain farts. Its a plan then. Down with these hoity toity Tea House people then. You may go there and look around, you may even sample the goods, but you better not enjoy, and if you do enjoy, you better not let me find out. Warna. Warna murr jai ga aapka saxxy chaiwalah. hai

Dear Chai wallah

Many thanks for this immensely enjoyable post. No, we shall not steal business from you – in fact we could very much join hands in fostering further consumerism
and milking the gullible customers…

We hope to see you there and also a merger of ideas
and acquisitions of wisdom…

Salaams
