Chai on the Beach

On a beach, over mishkak, paaya slowly cooked over three hours and piping hot milk tea or doodh wali chai, the subcontinent converged over a warm meal under the winter moon in the Gulf. The event catalyst was from Lucknow, the Paaya was made by a boutique owner from old Delhi, who has been to Karachi three times in the 1990’s to a real estate manager from Mangalore who was insistent on explaining the Christian community’s focus on Konkani, rather than Kannada to jolly academics from Islamabad to Lahore, extolling the inadequacies of Imran Khan. With the moon above and the warm waters of the Arabian Sea under our feet, we left our selves to one under nature and India and Pakistan sat together and enjoyed chai, politics and Dhindchak Pooja.
