Once upon a time in the lively Indian town of Chaiville, there were two best friends, Raj and Rohit, who loved nothing more than chatting with each other. Every evening, they would gather at the local tea stall to chat and share stories.
One scorching summer day, Raj came rushing to their usual meeting spot, panting and sweating. He exclaimed, Rohit, I’ve got a crazy idea! Let’s drink cold drinks every day, all summer long!
Rohit raised an eyebrow and asked, But why, Raj? What’s so great about cold drinks?
Raj grinned, Well, they’re so refreshing! They’ll cool us down in this heat, and we’ll be the ‘cool’ guys in town. Rohit thought about it for a while and then agree with Raj.
So, the two friends decided to embark on their cold drink adventure. They started gulping down bottles of soda, cola, and fizzy drinks with enthusiasm. Initially, they felt as if they had discovered the elixir of life. They were the envy of their friends as they strutted around with their cold drink bottles.

But as the days turned into weeks, something strange began to happen. Raj and Ramesh noticed some not-so-cool changes in themselves.
Rohit, usually known for his smooth dance moves, started to trip over his own feet on the dance floor at the town’s annual festival. Raj, who was once the cricket champion, suddenly couldn’t hit a ball to save his life. They even found themselves arguing over the silliest things.
Confused and frustrated, Raj and Ramesh decided to visit the wise old man, Mr. Sharma, who ran the local grocery store. They told him about their strange predicament.
Mr. Sharma chuckled and said, Boys, it’s those cold drinks you’ve been guzzling down! They might be ‘cool’ for a moment, but they can make you lose your real cool in the long run.
He explained that the excessive sugar and caffeine in cold drinks can lead to jittery nerves, mood swings, and a lack of focus. They might taste sweet at first, but in the end, they were wreaking havoc on their bodies.
Raj and Rohit looked at each other, realizing their folly. They decided to kick their cold drink habit and switch to healthier options like fresh fruit juices and water.
As the summer continued, Raj and Rohit slowly regained their smooth moves on the dance floor and their cricket prowess. They were once again the ‘cool’ guys in town, but this time, it was because they had learned to make healthier choices.
From that day on, whenever they passed by the colorful display of cold drinks at the grocery store, they would wink at each other and say, No thanks, we’d rather be cool without the cold drinks!
And so, in the town of Chaiville, Raj and Rohit learned that being truly ‘cool’ didn’t come from a bottle it came from making smart choices and staying true to themselves.
