Amazing. Speechless. Absolutely.


and you did not finish anything - dishes still in the sink when I wake up in the morning... dried ones not back on the shelves wrong or right AND the Italian pumpkins were the best I have had - all this after you enjoyed the soup, the fry, the boiled ones and the sambhar - I made enough sambhar to last all week and there is still quarter the pumpkin left over for another round of soup and now I am thinking of pumpkin cubes sauteed in olive oil with garlic and pepper.


Ha! Enjoyed the way you've written it. Splendid comeback, colors. :-)


Haha. This is one for Lynn Truss.
BTW, does colors have a blog too?


Seventy hour week don't you have any trade unions to catch you or your boss by the neck throw out lock the gates and give a lecture on the maximum working hours in this part of the world these indians will disrupt the relaxed work style...


hehee..you both are the best! and yes, i have felt that way too abt running out in the open and staying in the fields. maybe one of these days my boss is going to make me do that forever..wait..let me check my fax machine.


dense... really...
read Faulkner by any chance ?
And folks ask me why i dont want to get married !! ;P


loosemuse - I will deal with you soon - in person.


and musie, why DON'T you want to get married? Not finding anyone who is as sweet/cool as colors? yeah colors, I feel loosemuse shud be treated with pumpkin icecream.


Wow! I feel this way too sometimes.


Anita, did the pumpkin icecream tempt you soo much ?

Incidentally, pumpkin halwa is a good idea but parmanu does not like sweets too much - so he will beg off if I make that.

Stefan, incase you are reading this, halwa is an Indian sweet - we have beetroot halwa, carrot halwa(which I had brought to your house around 2.5 years back) and other such delicacies. I believe there is a pumpkin halwa also.


small pieces decked in in such wonderful semitransparent light yellow color giving a delicious crunch and such mild sweetness ...
Pumpkin halwa is Yo dish ! :)
So colors your belief has been rewarded. Now u better make some halwa also to prove that "with great belief comes great halwa" !! :P

And alphie better halwa than ice cream...
that much am clear about !!
And about colors - yes... there were those moments between us u know (sigh) !! forget whatever Parmanu is gonna say though - he is just a brash kid in these things ! :P




and you let a measly atom take her away???..that too brashly?

psst- I don't think the culinary expert liked the fact that you called Pumpkin halwa crunchy.


I want pumpkin halwa :(


Colors, I have to say that like he who writes this blog, I'm not into sweets either. Nor ice cream - overdose of it after tonsilectomy. However, I would be happy to TRY 'em.


Alpha: Culinary expert with google encyclopaedia.

Anita: Do come home while there is still some available.

Loosemuse: You should not reveal secrets in public. Looking forward to meeting you without kabab mein haddis


That's how I feel these days. The holiday seems a century ago


Rash: Someone was feeling neglected when compared to all the pumpkins - your comment will make someone feel wanted again...


colors!!! did you just call me a pumpkin (in rash's comment) ?! I take offense.. Musie..if I were you, I would too.


Hekate: I was speechless too when I first read “Running away from home”, a short story by Kamala Das. It is a form, which, used well and in appropriate contexts, can leave a deep and lasting impression upon the reader. The topic here – above – is perhaps a little casual; it leaves you breathless for no good reason.

Joyee: Colors does have a blog, but she won’t let me reveal it. She says she doesn’t want to steal the limelight (which she believes exists) away.

The others: I never thought I’d live to see the day when FOOD is discussed in these pages – unbelievable!


how did I miss this one??? :(


alphie - maybe cos it was meant to be a Rash comment she did so ? ;P
Still pumpkin - i mean colors - u should not call pumpkins such names like ours ! :P
BTW is it an yellow or a Grey pumpkin ? [ i mean the original that started the topic - not the ones that are commenting ! ;P ]


Hi colors,
I didn't realize that I fell out of favour with parmanu due to heaping pumpkins on him until I read this. I told my parents in law about it (who grow that stuff) and they reacted by offering to give you another TWO giants of similar size. :-) Tempted? Presents shouldn't be rejected, should they? ;-) stefan

PS: Halwa never survives its expiration date in our house.


Love this post... and the comments that followed!!!
