Chaayos has introduced certain new items in their menu. While their ads, specially radio ads promote tea, more than their snacks, this is a place that people visit for food. We tried certain food items from both the menus. And of course their chai!

Aadyam, the theatre initiative of Aditya Birla Group has been presenting a series of plays. These plays mostly have a Mumbai based cast.

Not just for food an entertainment, we welcome the initiative as it’s a celebration and reminder about the advantages of living in a free state.
