Lunch

'Jolna' bag hung from the forehead, coconut oil, vibhoothi, aluminium tiffin carrier, lemon rice, egg inside rice, buttermilk stains inside lunch bag, people talking in loud voices, empty water bottle, unfinished home work that is due in the afternoon, no PT period today.

What about oorgai, with the frighteningly red oil seeping out of the dabba in a quiet stream? My eyes are misty.

I think that sweet is made out of Tamarind and Elantha pazham. It will be inside a small plastic cover with pins at the end.
