I was thinking of you, when I made…

Pav Bhaji today, Dad !!! 🙂 🙂

Wherever we go out or whatever restaurant we ate at, this will be Dad’s choice always – the yummylicious, spicy Pav Bhaji !!! 😛  We used to tease him a lot…abt this choice of his. I don’t how he got really hooked on to it, but he was a great fan !!!

So, what could possibly be my mood, when I made Pav Bhaji yesterday ??? Of course, filled with Appa and how he relished the dish, made by me at Hyd.

The Bhaji on the stove !!!

The house smelled of butter and the masala and hmmmm…..made the girls tremendously hungry, when it was not dinner time at all…. 😉

While eating....

So what, if we didn’t have the Pav…we compensated with the Bread… 😉

It was like a tribute to Dad, when I made and ate this. I know, I was eating and he was watching me….but still, I felt close to him at that moment, as though we were sharing this meal.

In life, we take so many things for granted. And we also feel that there is no need to express our feelings of love and caring, ASAP.

Dear ppl,

Please dont postpone ur expression of love. There might not be a perfect moment, later in ur life to express it. Now, is the moment to tell everyone, what they mean to you. Plz do tell ur love.

I feel I missed telling my Dad a lot of things….he was busy with his work, and I didn’t feel like disturbing him – See, I feel a lot bad when I think that I’ve failed to share some small beautiful things with him.

One more memory of Dad – through this simple Pav Bhaji !!! 🙂

    Small children who have lost a dear grandparent often remember them like this. My father-in-law passed away when my son was 6, and the little fellow would insist on a fancy cake on late grandpa’s birthday, because he had such wonderful memories of those . I remember how his grandma would indulge him, and everyone would get lost in memories while enjoying the stuff with a cup of tea. I think its so wonderful, that you made something that your Dad loved, when you missed him so much. I am sure he loved the Pav Bhaji in spirit….

    I so agree with the last portion of the post! Most of the times we don’t express what we feel thinking that they already know how I feel and later we regret not telling!!!

I missed so much to say to my dad and i repent each day EACH DAY .. and i had so many oppurtunities he stayed with me in uk for a 6 months and i missed it to tell him how grateful i am for what i am …
