Wondering who I am?I am grandmother.
Remember that person who always brought a smile to your face for being
the one who always heard you,
the one who loved you no matter what,
the one who laughed at whatever you said whether or not they understood.
I am that person.
"While I serve you hot breakfast, you guys talk to each other. I will not take much time", I was not expecting them to appear at the breakfast table so early!
"Hey, let's sing songs", said Karthikeya. "No", Shruti and Maitreyi said in unison. "Let us share interesting Tidbits!" says Shruti. Maitreyi agreed.
Gargi was least interested in the conversation as she never likes the gap between making up of the mind to eat and actual eating. She spread her left hand over the table and lazily rested her head on it. When the girls did not get any response from Karthikeya, they turned to her and she responded with a Thumbs-up.
"Alright," said Shruti, "Let me start. You know Idli was first mentioned in a 10th century Kannada book!"
"Eh, is it not in Tamil? Idli is a Tamilnadu breakfast item!", asked Gargi. Her interest grew as the topic was food.
"No, the actual dish is not even from India. It was from Indonesia. Our Idli is a modified version of something called as Kedly", said Maitreyi. All girls broke into laughter with the name 'Kedly'. I was amused by the information the two girls have - 'books!' I thought.
"I know something", claimed Karthikeya. Everyone looked with curiosity. "Grandma is bringing Idlis and she is serving them with Idli Chutney Podi".
"That's not even fair, that is not a tidbit" shrieked Maitreyi. "Did you know that before I told you? I was the one who told you first that she is serving Idli Chutney Podi, so I am correct", he said while taking his first bite.
