Dhiraj Singh (right) purchases a box of milk sweets at the Mohali milk bar

Outside the Verka Milk Plant, in the town of Mohali in India’s breadbasket state of Punjab, is the ‘Verka Milk Bar cum Fast Food Complex’. It’s more like a Milk Emporium. From 6 in the morning till 10 in the evening every day, day in, day out, the human traffic walking up to the windows to buy milk in all its guises---fresh milk, curd, butter, ghee, paneer, milk shakes, milk whey, milk powder, milk sweets, salted and sugared lassis, sweetened flavoured milk drinks, ice creams---never stops (photo credit: ILRI/Susan MacMillan).
