The Saltlist

Satire in the Age of Letters and Technology- more than just a pinch of it.

Noon Chai

A photostory by Shivani Rajput.

It was my regular evening walk to the Lal Chowk in Srinagar, when all of a sudden it started drizzling and the weather got a bit cold. So on the way to the Tea stall, I came across this man who was sitting on the pavement of the shop and was enjoying his tea. When i said “one Lipton tea” he stared at me and asked “Kashmir me naya ?”  I nodded my head and he smiled back at me and said “Noon chai”. Noon Chai which  is very different from the regular tea that we drink,  is salty in taste and  favourite  of  Kashmiris .
