Train journeys in India are incomplete without this sound buzzing in the morning...its a unique experience in itself....When I was a kid, On weekends I used to make tea for my mom dad and serve them saying chai chai in the same manner...funny na...Well tea is something magical .... something which is so much a part of our daily lives.....our mornings...our evenings..our get togethers...our celebrations...something which you can have anytime anyday..and.. gives you ultimate comfort specially after a hectic day.
