Hot topic

Tea & Coffee
By Jamil Khan | SHARJAH

A group of friends gathered at Corniche as their weekly meeting to catch up. All have one common habit of reading news, either on paper or social media, and spend most of their time highlighting their favourite topics.
Some weeks ago, the hot topic was about taxes as the prices of cigarettes and energy drinks were doubled. After an hour-or-so fierce debate, two decided to quit smoking permanently and one decided to reduce the daily dosage.
That was easy to discuss and decide according to one’s “health and wealth.”
“Okay, listen,” the senior said. “We are just a month away to have VAT on many items. Do you think it will affect in any way on Karak Chai (a cup of takeaway mix tea costing Dh1)?” he asked.
This was not an easy question for everyone as all they are “addicted” to tea and they consume many cups in a day.
“I’m not going to quit TEA for VAT but definitely reduce the daily consumption,” one declared, and all agreed.
