A number of paata were arranged in a cluster at a dhaba (roadside restaurant). There were a few mausa (charpoys) and bankdo (benches) that were used for sitting. When the dhaba is open, thali (plates) are put on the paata for eating off. When the dhaba is closed, people use the paata for relaxing on or for siestas.
