Brewing Magic with a Pen and a Teapot- Laxman Rao the Acclaimed Author and Master of Chai
In a heartwarming celebration on the rise of the common man, Shangri-La Eros New Delhi proudly introduces Laxman Rao, an internationally recognized master of Chai and an award-winning author, as a cherished tea consultant at Mister Chai & Tamra.
Laxman Rao’s journey is an ode to determination and the pursuit of dreams. A common man who once brewed tea at a roadside stall at ITO has now authored over 24 novels, plays and essays. He writes his books about his personal experiences, and the ideas which he gets when he interacts with his customers. His books are known to exude a rare sense of honesty and are woven around the ground realities of life.
Laxman Rao’s determination, unwavering passion and constant effort have led him to be an illustrious figure in the world of Hindi Literature. In his journey of being an author, Laxman Rao faced multiple rejections from publishers, but his passion drove him to keep trying. As he says ‘Junoon hona bahut zaruri hai, aur thoda sa pagalpan bhi’ (Passion is important, so is a bit of craziness). He has now sold multiple copies of remarkable books like “Rammdas,” “Nai Duniya Ki Nai Kahani,” and “Dansh,” captivating the hearts of readers across the globe.
A moment which is forever etched in his heart will be meeting the former President of India, Smt. Pratibha Patil along with his family. His destiny led him from being a roadside tea-seller to walking the grand corridors of the President’s house, where he realised the immense impact of his work on society and culture.
Beyond the realm of his pen, Laxman Rao has also been a ‘teacher of hearts’ to young minds as a revered guest lecturer in multiple schools and universities. With his wisdom and humility, he has left an indelible mark on all who have had the privilege of learning from him. For Shangri-La Eros New Delhi, the bond with Laxman Rao goes beyond the ordinary. The guests and colleagues at the hotel are captivated not only because of the exquisite Masala Chai, but also by the humility and warmth which he brings. Each cup is served with an inspiring story of a common man, who followed his dreams with constant passion and determination.
Every morning, he brings his unique alchemy to Mister Chai & Tamra, brewing a magical potion that weaves together flavours and emotions, creating a symphony of taste. Through this association with Laxman Rao, Shangri-La Eros New Delhi has embarked on a journey to bring the essence of the common man to a global stage and promote talent from different walks of life. As guests savour the magic potion crafted by this literary wizard, they are set to embark on a journey of connection with the heart of humanity.
