the one who laughed at whatever you said whether or not they understood.
I am that person.
"With great patience comes great taste", Ananthanarayana gave his own twist to this Spiderman dialogue.
"Whose patience is that and which is that great taste?". I asked. "And by the way, I ran out of my quota of patience today, so do not expect it from me", I said with a semi-serious face.

"I dehusked the minapa pappu (urad dal) last night. I am going to make Pottu Vadiyalu now". He looked happy.

Needless to say, the fried Pottu Vadiyalu add an elegant taste to our food. They taste especially well with curd rice!
