Ahemdabad: Here's wishing a very happy Valentine’s Day to all the couples crazy in love. Hope the Valentine's week started on a good note for you. But if you are a 'chai-loving' couple, then it might break your heart when you read this.

While a lot of restaurants and cafés have started introducing special schemes and offers couples on Valentine's day, a café in Ahemdabad has decided to break the stereotype and celebrate single-hood. On 14th of February, MBA Chai Wala in Ahemdabad has decided to go against the flow and cater especially to the single people of the city. It created an event on Facebook saying they will offer free 'chai' or tea to all the singles between 7-10pm. This café believes that Valentine's Day should also be inclusive of all those who do not have someone special in their life.


Hence they are promoting Valentine's Day as a day when singles get pampered too. Located in the Vastrapur area, it is run by an MBA dropout, Prafull Billore. This cafe, which offers 35 varieties of tea and snacks to customers, seems to be celebrating the 'Singles Awareness Day' (SAD) in advance. Also known as 'Singles Appreciation Day', it is a holiday celebrated by single people. It serves as a complement to Valentine's Day for people who are not involved in a romantic relationship.
