Matke ka paani

Thanda thanda. But not cold. Not freezing. No ice-princess business. (Ice-prince?)

And then, when you drink it, leaves behind a lovely taste in your mouth. Warm earth. Like a good conversation.

Ever touch a matka? The touch can make you smile – grainy, rough, pleasant. Like a crooked smile showing tobacco-stained teeth.
