Title:
Tea Tuesday: Meet The Chai Wallahs Of India
Publication:
NPR
Reporter:
Eplett, Layla.
Description:

This "photo celebration" includes a series of photos of "chai wallahs" from India:

 

"On virtually every other street corner, in every city or town or village in India, there is a chai wallah — a tea vendor who supplies the piping hot, milky brew that fuels the country.And because everybody — politicians, rickshaw drivers, schoolteachers — needs a daily cuppa, chai wallahs get to meet people from every walk of life.

Like New York cab drivers, they 'witness a slice of life in such an intimate way,' says photojournalist Resham Gellatly. She and journalist Zach Marks have been documenting the lives of tea vendors throughout India on their blog Chai Wallahs of India."
