On the way to Lalgagh, we saw someone selling something out of 15-20 Containers (the kinds that are used to get milk from mother dairy in Delhi). Himanshu mentioned that in Mumbai, they sell Mixed Fruit Juice out of similar containers on Juhu and they mix juices as per your wish. We took a U turn and went back to that shop. He said these are Ayurvedic Juices and we wanted to explore further. He had Karela, Loki, Kari Patta, Carrot, Tulsi, Amla, Bhrahmi, Neem, Lime, Aloe and around 10 more different things. An uncle standing came and asked for a juice “Neem, Karela”, looked at us and said “It is good for Sugar”. Himanshu confirmed that his father has also been prescribed the same juice. We decided to give it a shot and you know what, don’t even try to taste the neem karela combination, and just gulp the entire glass of juice. We tried a few combinations and then left. In the car the unanimous first reaction was “it woke me up” and then discussion started around why these juices are healthy and no one cares.
We reached Lalbagh and found out there is a similar shop there as well. After the run we had tried a few more juice combinations. He sells around 100 juices every Sunday and around 70 on a weekday. Wow! If these many people come to him to have these juices every day, then just imagine how many people come to Lalbagh everyday!
BTW it was just Rs. 10 per glass at the shop near Lalbagh and Rs. 7 per glass at the shop on the way to Lalbagh.
