Definition

The French have their wine; the Belgians have their beer; the Russians have their Vodka and the Indians have their "water, no ice".

In certain regions, this national drink is also referred to as water at room temperature

The origins of this drink are linked to the inability of people of the Indian subcontinent to consume liquids at temperatures below 19 degrees C (66.2 F).
