She said, ‘Appa came, so mom made them this morning. <with pride> Is it good?… <in shock> ayoo… miss is coming…’ … ‘Tuppp’! She hurriedly closed her tiffin box tightly.

Ch, if only my friend and I managed to sneak a minute before the assembly dispersed, I would have succeeded getting a second spoon of the Carrot Halwa from her tiffin box.

So it’s mandatory to hide all the snacks, sweets and biscuits from the four imps somewhere in the kitchen. I, being an active participant in the kitchen right from my childhood <batting my eye lashes> I know… Continue reading »
