When I was in my first year in college, the glasses the chaiwallah gave tea in were pretty decently sized .Of course we didnt think so at the time.Times changed and Afzal Chaiwallah went, only to be replaced by a canteen in college. Canteen guy sold chai at the same Rs 2/-(only) per cuppa. Has been doing so for the last 4 years. I guess in this mehangai ka zamana one must cut corners,or at least cut the size of the cup.Increasing the price of Chai was not an option. that would have set of a riot. So cups got smaller and smaller untill we reach the present day, where a thimblefull of chai cost the same Rs2/-(only) ..If we were talking about bras here this would be an A size.I mean cups can't get any smaller now. unless the canteen wallah is funding frontier research in nanotech.
