"चाय पे चर्चा" (Chai Pe Charcha) Designer Tea Coasters
The Story Behind The "चाय पे चर्चा" Coasters
My husband is a diehard fan of the chai (tea), so much so that he would not hesitate having a cup of tea at 12:00 in the midnight just before signing off for the day. Most of the time, having a tea together with him means a lot of discussions about various topics like business, politics, social affairs, and the happenings throughout the day and the planning for tomorrow.
The chai has got a great significance in our existence. Together with our colleagues in office or with a friend on the road side tea stall or at a social gathering with family, having tea together, would invariably result in various discussions, gossips and debates.
The chai creates the social space for people to introspect, interact or sharing their experiences and memories with every sip of the tea.
During my college days, having a cup of tea would mean discussing the submissions, faculties and their issues, affair with who’s who and so on….
During my hostel tenure having a cup of tea with friends especially on Sundays with “Parle-G” biscuits dipped inside the tea, was the most memorable time…
As I look closely at tea stalls in the streets and bazaars of India, I realized that there are so many different ways in which people gather in public spaces for a “cup of chai". The chai stall seems to symbolize the point of departure for economic and social exchanges in the marketplace.
The very idea of discussions over tea inspired me to design the “Chai Pe Charcha” coasters depicting the various tea stalls, which symbolizes the Indian culture and social existence.
The chai (Tea) and the charcha (Discussion) have a great significance in our day to day life. The “Chai Pe Charcha” coasters will hopefully inspire us to have great discussions and finding new sparkling new ideas for our day to day monotones life.
