Happy Birth(month)

Chai ki Dukaan entered its 7th year this september!!!

One of the quietest years for CKD has been its 6th, and rightly so! It has been an year of realizations, milestones, achievements, new journeys, and revisits! A few windows closed, and a lot of them opened!!!

Window Panels @ Tajul Masajid, Bhopal

And from how I see it, the 7th year is going to be extremely exciting, and happening, and set a strong base for years to come!

Here is some tea for everyone who has been a part of the journey in some form or the other!!!

Happy Birthday Chai ki Dukaan!

and with this, I finish the 100th post for 2010! Interesting!


  1. 7 saal??? whoa!
    as far as i remember, it didn't debut in this name...

    i guess the first post in the new year should be the chronological listing of major changes such as:-
    - names
    - logos
    - policies

  2. 6 years actually! 7th started on the 16th of September :)

    There has only been one name change bro! from Life as a (W)hole to Chai ki Dukaan! thats it!

    About the logos.. i guess just about two or three of them.. not even sure if I kept the previous versions!

  3. congrats... some patience haan

  4. I'm glad I stumbled upon this blog ! it's as refreshing as a garam chai ki pyali... keep up the gud work :)

  5. Seven years is a long time but I am sure it's fun for you as well. :) Congrats to you and wish you many more. I enjoy reading it too so there's a a bit of selfishness in those wishes... keep the photos, philosophical and all other posts coming!

    PS. I love the blue windows and chai with bubbles the most.
