Coffee on wheels…

A bicycle of a coffee vendor in the market… most of the street shops can not afford to take a coffee break but yearn for the sip, this mobile coffee serves them hot and homemade filter coffee at their place without leaving their business… a most desired option many shopkeepers opt in business hours….

Well then this is a service the people are willing to pay for. We have something similar here in this country where I live. Small trucks go around and open up one side and expose food. It depends on the time of day but in the morning it would be coffee, milk, donuets or pastries. At lunch it would be hot soup and sandwiches, ooffee, tea, milk and soda pop like Coke or Pepsi.

Nice shot.

Surprise, surprise, surprise. It's me!

It is these attempts that are true examples of entrepreneurship. Simple services, no fluff, yet fulfilling in their primary purpose with good quality. And these are to me essential part of a developing country like India. It is what makes us what we are. And it troubles me that some of these things are slowly going away in the name of becoming a modern society.

What do you folks think?

Arun, you have raised an important point of entrepreneurship spirit, I strongly believe that the same will continue taking various modes and meathods to provide for demands generated by the masses. I could even see few of the vendors now got connected via mobiles phones to their customers and have extended their reach and availability...

Yes Sally, the wallahs go along woith almost any vendors like kapada wallahs ( cloth merchants) Chai wallahs ( tea vendors) and so on....
