About the play partner: Our very own Brainbuilder and Pretendgineer, Kaveen and Vinuthi will share Falooda. Falooda is a drink enjoyed by many South Asian Countries. The main flavor and aroma are Rose. It was a comforting drink my sister and I enjoyed in Sri Lanka, and is a very nostalgic childhood drink. There are many flavors and textures in the drink which combine to give a unique flavor.
