Its Chaitra month Navratri going on and today is asthami. As in the normal Navratri some people celebrate this asthami too..by doing pooja for small girls.
Now the brat is a popular choice in my building (not too many small girls eh?) which has 2-3 north Indians who call her every year to do prasad. I always always always send R because I LOVE the prasad they send across. The black channa, puri and sheera. And the brat always gets back excess food for me 🙂 (What I am a practical mother, some advantages of having a girl eh?)
Anyways so today morning, at about 8.30 I get a call.
Hi, I am XX calling from X floor
RM: Hello hello
Voice: We are having Navratri pooja at the house, can you please send your daughter for the pooja
RM: Oh, but she has gone to school
Voice: oh..when will she return
RM: We will be back in the evening
voice: oh okay
RM :you have made puri,chole, sheera prasad kya?
Voice: Yaa, was hoping to have her here..but chalega..
But the phone got cut. And she didnt even ask us to come in the evening to collect the prasad.
Darn darn darn! That prasad is to die for. Absolutely yummmmm and I lost a golden chance to eat it. Just darn my luck!!!!
