Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

Snack-time, on the move

These set-ups are quite common here in Delhi, but the camera was handy only during a trip to Manali. A brass vessel with a rather generous bottom tilted at an over-acute angle and stayed by strings, and mounted on a stove. Several pots of spices accompany the eye-catcher, and of course the whole setup is completely mobile. What does Mr Brahm Kumar vend? Spiced up lentils, embellished with onions and tomatoes, and garnished with coriander leaves - a rather filling snack for much needed 'interim relief'.Happy snacking!

I was misled into thinking it was an improvised satellite dish! Intriguing, if you don't know what.
