Mobile, Money, Chai, Delivery

Ahmedabad: chai delivery

Spent an hour this morning in the basement of my hard drive looking through the archives for photos related to mobile money service use for a catalogue highlighting the work of the IMTFI. Came across this photo taken in Ahmedabad in one of those wander the streets before breakfast moments, the morning before leaving for home – it captures a chai seller taking orders on his mobile; his kitchen-hand/delivery boy is in the foreground and a stack of customer names/credit accounts sits in a tray to the left. Every transaction is blessed by deities eyes.
