Do you remember the age-old goli soda? I was lucky enough to come across a goli soda seller in the deep lanes of One Town area, Vijayawada.

It was my childhood fantasy to be a goli soda seller, as opening the soda bottle by pressing the goli (a glass marble which pressure-locks the aerated lemon water) looked like so much fun, and I thought it needed super-human power!
Well, I got into a chat with Ramana, the seller. He says there are lots of people who buy it as it’s a thirst-quenching drink that’s got lemon, is aerated and comes fresh everyday.
Moreover, it’s pocket friendly at just Rs.2 per chilled bottle. These guys are so straight-forward that the regular soda bottles with cooling are sold for Rs.1.5 only. I ask Ramana how the business is, and his answer is a reassuring “GOOD.”
He says in summer people flock to his shop and that he makes a profit large enough to keep the business going through the winter when sales aren’t so great.
There’s ‘Cocakola’, ‘Fepsi’ and ‘Panta’ in the market but nobody gives so much of a drink for so less, so goli soda still rules, he says. Next time you come across a goli soda selling shop, make sure to stop by and enjoy the original Indian aerated refreshment!
