Communi-Tea Building, One Cup At A Time

In the midst of a construction site in a rapidly developing suburb of Pune, you'll find an interesting collection of people gathered. IT professionals, mechanics, builders, taxi drivers, teachers, parents, children, and grandparents too. People of various faiths. People from all walks of life. And at the heart of this group is a hardworking, cheerful, incredibly talented chai maker who can teach us all about a lot more than just tea.

The Street Performer Who Made Me See With New Eyes

I want to tell you about one of the newest friends I have made here in India: Chetan. Chetan stays in Vangani, a suburb of Mumbai. He is a young dad, and lives in a humble home with his wife Radha and adorable baby twins. He's also a musician with an incredible passion for percussion, and a pretty good singer too.
