Chai is not only a volatile drink, of flavour and of character as Aditi Sriram writes in her interview with Playright Ayad Akhter in Guernica in 2014, it is a distinctive sense of home for the migrant in a bubbling hot broth in a paper cup, in short it is, home in a cup.

It is very easy to arrive at hasty conclusions, harder to take the effort to understand the context. #karakchaitales
