Daily Miracles...

For the past few days, due to a variety of personal reasons I have been having breakfast at the office canteen. Today, I was serving myself idlis which looked more like hard stones and suddenly I became all nostalgic about the soft fluffy idlis my grandma used to make...At that moment I would have given all my worldly possessions just to get one more of those soft idlis...I was myself surprised by this feeling since I am not particularly fond of idlis (whether soft or hard) and I wasn't sure whether I missed my grandma more or her idlis more...As I went to my table telling myself to come to terms with reality, something really amazing happened - My friend, who had bought breakfast from home opened her tiffin box and handed me one of the softest idlis I have ever eaten in my life with the words "Try these idlis - these are soft !".
P.S We usually never share food and I didn't verbally express even the slightest dislike for the idlis from the canteen...I don't know what prompted her to give me what I was sooo badly desiring to eat with exactly the words I was soo badly wishing to hear...You may call it freak coincidence - I like to call it daily miracles !

Home food is home food. period!
When amma used to serve pulisseri,sambar and all, I used to "crib" at the slightest instance of a variation in taste, be it 2 gms of extra salt or chilly...

Now I know, home is heaven...
