VISAKHAPATNAM: A walk on the beach road can be good for health for more reasons than one.
Morning walkers can not only get to enjoy healthy sprouts and health drinks at make-shift stalls near Yoga Village, they can also enjoy their morning coffee or tea at any place on the beach road. Carrying the mobile tea and coffee machines on his back Naga Sarathi drives all along the beach road every morning to give that refreshing hot sip to tired walkers.
He can be easily spotted going around the place between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m.
“The concept of mobile tea and coffee is very popular in Hyderabad. I wanted to do some part-time job during my free time and felt this idea would work well on the beach road in Vizag,” he says. Naga Sarathi works as a real-estate agent. But the low salary hardly meets the need of his family.
With the extra amount that comes from the part-time work, he pays his wife’s educational expenses with it. His customers are the weary morning walkers and tourists.
Stalls of herbal tulsi tea near the Children’s Park also draws good crowd in the mornings.
For the health conscious, it is an ideal drink after a long refreshing walk. The stall has ragi malt, vegetable soup, sweet ginger, sprouts, ragi flour, multi-grain flour and dates.
There is another stall near the Yoga Village that is quite popular among yoga learners and walkers.
