Since my childhood days I have loved anything and everything that was served chilled, be it a cold drink or Desserts or even the ice that went in to make a drink cooler, then came the Chuski or Gola which were prohibited as our partners were over protective, and didn't want a upset stomach or throat infections coz of the Quality of ice in Question. So most of the times it was home made crushed ice along with roohafzah or Khus sherbet on it. It is so much safer for our generation as we have the likes of Yamu's Panchayat at CP or Shikara Lovely Chuski at India gate who use good quality ice and sherbet.
It's peak summer now and What better way to welcome the Summer season than the Kala Khatta Chuski from Shikara Lovely Chuski priced at Rs.50, went there on Saturday midnight at 12:30 and they were doing brisk business even at that hour. Had to wait 15 min to get hold of the Kala Khatta, although there were 4 people working continuously to give us that heavenly Chuski.
There was a time when this guy 'pappu' was not very popular by this name (Shikara Lovely Chuski) and he had to create a brand value for himself by yelling out loud his popular jingle to catch the attention of the general public, have been a regular visitor to his stall for ages and back in those days we used to call him Up on his mobile and would request him to yell his jingles "Chuski, hai lovely Chuski, kya pyar se banti lovely Chuski, dil bahar Chuski, pan Chuski, haaaai lovely Chuski, pehle iskool mein khatey they ab India gate pe khaiye, hai Lovely" and he used to oblige. The guy is a AC mechanic by the day and used to live inside a Mosque back in those days selling a Chuski at just 10 bucks.
In my last 3-4 visits haven't met the guy(Pappu), who used to serve us with love and passion, but he has maintained his standards and his Chuski still rocks.
