but alternate for plastic cups for tea was given by LALU PRASAD YADAV, THE THEN RAIL MINISTER.
but it was ignored by politicians and no social worker supported it.
you know well, it was" earthen kullad" with natural smell.
at railway station, it can be used and at some tea stalls even today flavoured tea is served in kullads and people ask for it.
why we hesitate in adopting our culture.
why we want to show that we are modern by using fatal materials like plastic. more
They are expensive and the supply is short which leads to vendors reusing them - again leading to hygiene and taste issue.
Inside one of the very prominent water park (Wet-n-Joy) in Lonavala (Pune - Mumbai highway) there is a tea shop selling Kulhad Chai at exorbitant prices. I saw the vendor reusing the Kulhads in fact he asked all the customers to return the Kulhads after drinking the tea. He then put the used Kulhads (without any washing) inside coal fired stove. Warmed them for a few minutes and served the tea to next set of customers.
Is this is the way Kulhads are going to be used ?
The best environment friendly is to carry own set of cups / glasses / tumblers unless a non polluting and reusable material is invented. more
