Artist's description:

This painting portrays a scene of Kehwa shop.Green tea enjoys a very important position in KPK. It is served in every household, rich or poor, irrespective of the status of its residents. But somehow men can’t get enough of it at home it appears, for the number of the kehwa khana is always on the rise. Kehwa khana is not only a place to drink green tea; it is a place where men sit and talk for hours at a stretch while continuously emptying cup after cup of the fragrant, hot, sweet green tea. It is the place where the tired workers take a break during their day, a place where friends chat, a place where elders sit together to solve a dispute. That is why kehwa khana has such significance in their culture. The surprising thing is that though it plays a remarkable role in the lives of the people of KPK, yet it is in no sense fancy. The kehwa khana may comprise of only a few wooden cots(Charpoi) and a make shift shade on top. Some kehwa khanas are well built and modern to certain extent, but the charpoi has to be there for sitting purposes. Come to think of it, it is very efficient as a resting place, for the tired workers are often found napping on the charpoi after a hot kehwa drink.
