Ganesh, a #chai wallah at the train station in #Patna #Bihar brews his last pot of the night. His hut, bright blue with flower garlands adorning the front, is identical to the adjacent chai stand. But Ganesh and his neighbor, Shubhilal Yadav, don't see each other as competition. They view their proximity as a strength: It allows them to serve rushed commuters at twice the speed. #Street #Food #India #ekPlate #ekplatechai
This street, which occupies less than one millionth of the area of Chennai city, covers more than 15% of Chennai's everyday retail sales. So, what is sold here? Everything! You can buy anything from a single push pin to gold jewelry on this street. The prices here are lower than anywhere else in the state. This is why Ranganathan street is worshiped by Chennai shoppers. Lately, tourists have been flocking here to get a glimpse of this unique, rowdy atmosphere.
