The lassi cooler

The Delhi Metro makes me feel peckish. What quick snack could I get? Outside the metro station was a very crowded paratha place. It smelt good, but a paratha is not a small snack. Around the corner I found matkas full of lassi, cooling in cold cabinets bearing logos of giants of retail who are locked in a perpetual battle like the Arisians and Eddorians or the Kree and the Skrull. I don’t mind the pop culture of The Empire, but I would rather have a lassi than sugared water for a snack. One matka was enough for two of us.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.


  1. I’ve got a thing for mango lassi, or indeed just about anything that’s got mango in it. I got addicted to mango when I was in Karachi back in the 80’s. My colleagues and I would do the rounds of all the big name hotels to hang out drink coffee and watch the world go by and there always seemed to be a mango promotion going on somewhere. I think that might well have been the first time I tried mango lassi. Like you say, much better than sugared water!
