SHORT STORY - PARATHAS GIVES HOMELY FEELING WHEN AWAY FROM HOME

PARATHAS GIVE HOMELY FEELING EVEN WHEN AWAY FROM HOME

Sachi completed her B tech from Patna engineering college. Her English communication skill is not that great, as she is from a small town, but seeing her confidence, attitude and analytical skills in the interview, she was offered a software job in an MNC with office in Bangalore. Even though she is not very ambitious, she wanted to gift her father a new scooter and basic lifestyle needs to her mother. She is the only daughter to their parents. The pain of being in different locations is almost equal to both daughter and her parents. With loads of weight in the heart, she touched her parents’ feet before starting to Bangalore. They blessed here with happiness and hugged her. 

Currently she is staying in a PG near to her company. It’s been one week she came to Bangalore. She is experiencing a complete change over in her life – new friends, new food, and new etc., Even though she made few good friends, she misses her talkative mother and pampering father a lot. She calls them over phone every three hours to get relief from home sickness. 

10 AM. It was her first weekend in Bangalore. She got up late. She noticed her roommates eating the eatables sent by her mother when she was coming. She couldn’t say no to them, as they were very supportive to her in all the things. All the packets which her mother sent were over. She wanted to eat some homely food because she was fed up with the junk she was eating the whole week. She opened an online app and searched for her favorite parathas. She finally found one restaurant having more than 4.3 ratings. She opened their menu and surprised to see 10 varieties of stuffed parathas and 5 varieties of flat parathas. She found unique combination of stuffings like OMG [onion, methi and gobi] parathas, aloo matar parathas etc., she order 5 varieties to her and her roommates as well. Each paratha is separately boxed with butter, curd, and pickle and aloo bhaji as a set. Five of them sat together and unboxed the parcels. Suddenly sachi remembered her mother making the tiffin box to her father. With that memory, she tasted the parathas. They were so homely with right combo of whole wheat atta and masaledaar stuffing topped with melting butter. She started her day with good nutritious healthy breakfast. They all felt the food was good and enjoyed their weekend with their plans. 

Whenever they wanted eat something homely, they ordered parathas repeatedly. Sachi became used to her new life in Bangalore. She took her life as it came to her by standing on the values she learnt from her parents and started supporting her family. Even though their parents don’t need to depend on her, her father truly believed in empowering women and she made her parents proud.
