Chai hai ya jadoo...
Chai and streets of Hyderabad..., are inseparable.
Looks like, a pakka Hyderabadi's day will never get completed without his daily dose of Irani chai.
The whole of Hyderabad has landmarks with these Irani cafes which are prominently located in various areas. Blue Sea, Diamond Point, Nimrah, Central Point, Masthana Hotel, City Light, Niloufer and so many more.
You try to find some place using postal address you may face a problem, but you mention the Irani cafe of the area and bingo..., you will get all the directions within minutes.
These cafes are not very well maintained but are still a bubbling with activities. People from all walks of life come there. Few for the economical pricing and few for the experience sake.
But there is a huge set of such people too, who do their business dealings sitting in these cafes. No frills, no ego, no show offs but pure business. These cafes become an office outside office for many...., and the waiters there give personalized service to such regular customers.
So next time you want to experience the pulse of Hyderabad, do try to slip in one of those cafes nearby and start blending in.
You will start seeing Streets of Hyderabad with a new perspective.
C ya soon.
