Why was the tea stall named Matric Fail Chai Wala?
Sanu told that people who knew something had refused to open a tea stall named Matric Fail Chai Wala. But Sonu thought that most people open shops with their own name, so he wanted to keep something different. There was also the tension of matric failure, just because of this he opened a shop named Matric Fail Chai Wala. Today we are running tea stall with this name only. Along with running Shanu Tea Stall, he is also taking some technical degrees related to computers. He said that the tea stall is getting good response. If people keep getting love like this, then I will increase the stall further, in which I will also keep other flavors of tea and food items like fast food.
