There was a large pot on the side of the road in Kolkata. Steam was rising. This was a chai stand. It seemed to be run by two men. The hot chai drunk in a hot and humid alley is very tasty.

A lot of workers were stopping by for a break and drinking chai. Few of them continue to relax there after finishing their drinks. Everyone went back to work immediately. It seemed to be the custom here to drink chai quickly and leave quickly.

The chai stand in the busy alleyway was still busy. Chai is the national drink in India. As I pointed my lens at the steaming hot pot, the two men who were working there were watching me closely.
