Chai Time

Kamakshi Canteen, Ponda, Goa
After performing the puja at the Ramnathi Devasthan, I sneak away to the canteen beside the front entrance. They make the best missal and ussal paav. As I gorge myself, I notice these two guys taking a Chai break. Both were caught up in their own thoughts and did not utter a single word to each other. Prolly none were needed. By their mere presence they seemed to support each other.
