I look forward to the weekend afternoons where I can get away doing absolutely nothing. This is also the time when cooking becomes more than just a chore. I prepare my ‘comfort food’, park myself in the couch, watch some movie or read some book. There is no rush to gulp the food down or stick a deadline to anything that needs to be done. Such a welcome break from the days when time flies faster than one can keep track of. At the end of the couch is the crisp newspaper, with all its gossip, puzzles, crosswords, and occasional items of news. There still is romance in turning over its pages, reading every single word, even the weekly zodiac predictions, which one forgets as soon as they have been read! Oh! how can I miss mentioning the naps – the hoping for an hour long nap which extends into two hours, thus making you feel all disoriented when you do manage to get up! But you have the savior in form of the strong masala tea, the smell of which sets the tone of the evening – relaxed and happy.
