Business in Cochin temporarily came to an end after the Markar affair. In 1875 Georg G. Volkart, the son of Salomon Volkart, visited Cochin and decided ‘on doing what should have been done long before’, namely, as Ammann reported, on visiting ‘the Coast-ports and on seeing himself what the conditions and business possibilities were in what had been up to then terra incognita for the firm’s’ representatives at Cochin’. This trip, on which Georg G. Volkart was accompanied by Ammann, was a revelation. Ammann recalled their arrival in Tellicherry, a coastal town in the north of Cochin: ‘The w:hole place was full of coffee and pepper, with crowds of Natives of both sexes sorting, garbling and packing the goods and a gang of coolies carrying the bags across the beach to the cargo-boats’ (Figure 4.5). As a consequence, Volkart decided to open up an additional branch in Tellicherry, with Ammann as its first manager, and to begin to purchase both upcountry and on the coast in the north of Cochin.58 Yet even at the new branch in Tellicherry the purchase of goods did not work without the help of indigenous middlemen. In 1886, Volkart established the Coffee Curing Works in Tellicherry to prepare coffee beans for transport to Europe, but it proved difficult to guarantee a sufficient supply of coffee and Volkart considered closing it again. Its long-termfuture was only assured when members of the Cooty family of Moplah merchants were employed as brokers. The sons of the family worked as buying agents upcountry during the season and became successful in supplying Volkart with enough coffee and other merchandise. This cooperation was so satisfactory that it continued up until the 1960s.
The unicode character “ಠ” comes from the letter “ṭha” in Kannada, one of the major Dravidian languages of India that is influenced by Sanskrit.

In the late 1970s, Karnataka Govt began negotiations with Wilkinson Swords of Englad to set up a razor blade company in India. The company was formed with the RPG Group, and was called the Karnataka Blades Pvt. Ltd.
The Company also established a feeder college—Haileybury—so that it could recruit bright schoolboys and train them to flourish in, and run, India. These high-minded civil servants both prolonged the Company’s life when Victorian opinion was turning ever more strongly against it and also provided a model for the Indian and domestic civil service.

48 years ago when Kalanthan Koya opened Ameen Juice Shop at Moideen Mosque Jn, Calicut, it was probably Calicut’s first juice shop. He opened KPK Fruit and Cool Bar in Mananchira in 1980, and later opened shops at Kidson Corner and Stadium Jn.
KPK Fruit and Cool Bar came up with a juice made of ‘Njaalipoovan’ banana, frozen milk and sugar — the first customers were a set of guys watching Sharjah Cup in a shop next door. When asked the juice’s name, he just cooked up a name and said, “Sharjah Shake”. The name stuck! As they say, the rest is history.
The juice travelled far and wide — and is now a favorite among Malayalees across the world.
The juice shop that gave the world Sharjah Shake will stay on, but the man who created it, EP Kalanthan Koya is no more.
Here’s to all the Sharjah Shakes I ever had.
