“I’ve been running this tea stall for almost 2 years now. It’s slow but stable business. My family is well off on my son’s income. Whatever I make from this small tea stall is an addition to the monthly income at home. I run this stall for keeping myself busy, mostly. The best part? I have known faces visiting almost every day. It’s a few people and their stories. Most of them work in the garment nearby or work at the small offices around this neighborhood.
People drop by here for a cup of tea and talk about their day to day issues. Sometimes, they even ask me about my opinion. It’s quite fascinating, seeing so many lives grow and transform in front of my own eyes (although I know I have no role in their lives).
If I could, I would’ve made a movie about this tea stall and the lives of people revolving around it. I think it would’ve been a big hit!”
