54. Back in the Day – Part XII

Hello all you lovely people at CFC/FOM. Story-time again – my favourite time!

Many of you have read parts of Shipra Castledine’s ‘Back in the Day’, in which Shipra writes about her childhood in the tea gardens of the Dooars (North Bengal). It was a magical childhood, and Shipra’s storytelling is nothing short of magic.

Today, I am happy to bring you the latest excerpt from Shipra – ‘Back in the Day Part 12’. Do reach out for that cup of tea and prepare to travel to the Dooars of the 1960s. 

Cheers to all of you, and cheers to the grand old spirit of Indian tea. Be back with another story next Friday – yeh vaada raha!

Cheers to the spirit of Indian tea!

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.

So go ahead #raiseyourcup #DrinkToACause
