Burf or Ice. There are spots all over town where large blocks of ice are dropped off each day from the ice factory. The ice is usually covered with jute and with this additional tarp (talpatri in mumbaiya) on it during the rains. If you want ice, all you have to do is call the number written on the all next to the unattended block of ice. But then, the customers are all regulars. Today was a lucky day because I saw this young lad who had come to pick up some ice.
