Thank you #VGsiddartha for bringing a coffee revolution in our lives. @CafeCoffeeDay cafe in a lot of places was the only option for a great coffee and snack. You did not fail, you won the hearts of millions of Indians who mourn your passing away. Rest in peace, Sir.

CCDs were the first coffee houses to mesmerise two tier cities like Kanpur.Back then when I left for college to a larger city,in Kanpur,they were the usual adda even for my parents to hang around with their friends,simply because they had nothing elitist about them. #VGSiddhartha
