There was a small tea shop on the roadside. A bench was placed in front of it and three men were sitting on the bench together. They were lazy and relax together there.

The shop was selling biscuits, cigarettes, and others with the exception of tea. The glass bottles behind them were filled with biscuits. You may think what was sold in this shop be targeted at children. Yet it was not true.

In Hindu culture, alcohol drinking is intolerant because it was written as one of five mortal crimes in Manusmriti, which is an ancient legal text of Hinduism. So the adults drink tea while eating these snacks here.
