41. Bungalows that became homes

Hello again, friends! It’s so joyful to go through the Indian Chai Stories blog in search of the story that I plan to share on the coming Friday. We’ve read two very different accounts of life in the tea gardens over the last two weeks; each of them from a tea planter’s wife. We’ll continue with the memsaabs today.

I’m particularly fond of this story, and I won’t spoil anything for you by telling you why. Read all the comments at the end and you will understand!

So here is Gumi Malhotra, with an invitation for all of us to take a little virtual trip to the tea bungalows that housed her and her family over the years. Be sure to sit down with a cup of your favourite chai before you set off on your little tour! Bungalows that became homes Read the story

Cheers to the spirit of Indian tea, and cheers to the spirit of the planter’s wife! More about her later. See you again next week, folks! Yeh vaada raha!

Indian Chai Stories

This segment is a result of our fruitful collaboration with Indian Chai Stories, a blog by Gowri Mohanakrishnan, a planter's wife who's been writing tea stories for many years and is also an active supporter of Chai for Cancer.
Her stories come straight from the tea gardens of India and are best enjoyed with a cup of garam chai.
