Out of our love for tea and the dearth of milk in the hostel, we became frequent visitors to the teastall at the edge of the street. The tea was just perfect for us- strong flavour with low sugar. There is a saying, “Where ever you go, you will find a Malayali!” This saying is usually followed by the funny story of the teashop on the moon which belong to a Malayali! Now I did not get a chance to go to the moon yet, but I was quite amazed to find who owned this teastall near us! My curiosity was triggered when I heard someone address the shop owner as “chetta” which is the Malayalam term for a older man( literally meaning elder brother). And all doubts were confirmed when my mother tongue was being spoken between the owner’s wife and daughter. Well, now I wouldn’t be really surprised when I see the Teashop on the moon! Totally random yet intresting!

Nothing but a recipient of Christ's grace. I am a young doctor and I use this space to find meaning in the bedlam of my thoughts. My blog might resonate with the screams of a young adult finding her place in life, the stench of hospital corridors, images of the many people who intrigue me and the lessons my Saviour Jesus teaches me.
