Tale of a bottle…

A bottle fills
so many tastes,
that many colors;
Just to make
you and me fully awake
without a shake!
Gets recycled
again and again
without any pain
to refresh my brain!

Note: The above picture is of a plane soda bottle, which was widely being used in India before the introduction of cans a decade or so. If you see carefully you can see a marble (locally called “Goli”) insdie. After filling the soda water and filled with gas, the marble is made to push against the narrow opening thus making airtight lock. Its locally called “Goli Soda”. Just want to know if anywhere else in the world such things are used? Please comment and let me know.

  1. There’s a soda marketed to kids at a local fast food Japanese restaurant that has a marble in it. I don’t know where they are made.
