Small is beautiful.


Dear Buddies, how are you all doing?

I haven't been writing much on this blog of mine since a long time. However, I do post regularly on my another blog Manju'z Kitchen. But now I'm back here.

So the moment I've been waiting for since past five years has finally arrived! I got in a good college for my MBA...And I'm really so so so happy!

I have this habit of buying little things. Things that don't cost much, but are beautiful in a sort of way. I always keep on looking around for food props, for my food blog mentioned above.

Last week, I went out with my BFF Mehnaz to check out the local stores. I wanted to buy some kitchenware. To my surprise, I found something which I couldn't resist buying.

These small little cute tea glasses!




These tea glasses are generally used by the street-side 'chaiwalas' in India. The pair costed me just INR 10, or around 20 cents in US currency!

My Mom and Dad were kinda upset when I showed them these tea glasses with a delightful grin. They didn't like me buying these, for reasons alien to me. But for me, these glasses reflect humbleness. That's the way I look at it.

I too have had tea in such glasses at the small tea shop outside my office in Mumbai. When one of my office colleagues insisted I go with them to have tea there, that was my first time I've ever had a tea on a roadside stall. It was amazing. It gave me a sense of  liberalization. People from varied walks of life; young and old, rich and poor enjoyed tea at the same place.



And these tiny glasses remind me of  the tea breaks I took with my office buddies...So I bought myself something that will bring a smile on my face every time I look at it. Sometimes, small is beautiful...

Have a great day ahead all my buddies. :)
