Mumbai’s cutting-chai warms the gullets of many-tired souls on the streets. Roadside stalls, or tapris as Mumbaikars like to call them, serve piping hot cutting-chai to athirst Mumbaikars.
It is this cutting-chai and the tapir where it is found that has found a home at this year’s Kala Ghoda Festival. Students of Rachna College have come up with unique concept of ‘Cutting Chai Pyramid’.
This concept gives out a glimpse to the visitors about a Mumbaikar’s attachment with the tapri and cutting-chai. This cutting-chai pyramid stands 14 feet tall with 4,000 cutting-chai glasses.
Gaurav Machivle, a fourth year Fine Arts student at Rachna College, was seen working on this cutting-chai pyramid said, “My team and I have been working on this concept since last two months. Mumbai’s streets seem pointless in there are no tapris.
Whether its daybreak, or a quiet chilly night, the cutting chai is every Mumbaikars everlasting friend. By setting up the cutting-chai pyramid we have made an attempt to show the trifecta that is tapri, cutting-chai and Mumbai.
