When we were in Bombay i have learnt this recipe. As there were all states people. Means from Gujrat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar, UP, Assam etc. All were living lovingly to each other. We were living at Bandra Borge Home. A big hostel of ”TATA Hospital” There they have given us a huge kitchen we all were making there our food. At that time gas was not there so everyone was bringing stoves with them & in them, a lot of stoves are running & so we can’t talk to each other. Everyone has to get a specific space to make food.
I was also making food there. In them, we have a good family of a patient from Madhyapradesh. That patient name was Ghansham. He also suffered from the same disease. He was with his Mama. His age was 21 years. His Mama loves him unconditionally. Thinking that ”our relation is like Ram & Hanuman ” means they consider for the sister’s son as a Hanuman & treats very lovingly. Anyone’s mother also can\’t take care of like him. He had made one wish to Hanuman for him that ‘If his Bhanjya will be cured totally he will go to take darshan of Hanuman about 100 KM by walking ”’He makes food for him washing all utensils, feeds him. A patient was very nice & in a healthy condition. If we will see we didn’t feel that he was patient. But then also he was always taking rest as due to chemotherapy he becomes tired & weak.
In today’s period can anyone keep like this for his sister’s Son? or can anyone will live with any Bhanjya for 9 Month by leaving his own family? Are we are on real track now.?
The same situation was there my ‘mama went to the tour in that period & his son was for MBBS in CHEM HOSPITAL. He came to visit his own son & maybe thought to see my son also. He came to meet my son alone not brought any fruits or any sweet food item also. Having a good job of Bank Manager along with his wife HOD of senior college & having a big farm & so many properties also. He enters in my son’s room.At that time my son was admitted into the hospital & sat aside.I was happy as my Mama came to see my Son. At that time my husband was not there, he sat for awhile & gave 10 Rs only for my son although i have to spent 2.5 lack Rs for my son. then also i didn’t mind about his relationship. See the same relation was there one was behaving like this & one was like this.
Now before 3 years at Diwali, he was suffered from Brain attack & admitted in the Hospital, he had brain hammering & something i got this news i rush to the Hospital. His wife, his daughter’s husband were sitting outside. There was no entry to the patient inside in ICU. After small intervals of time, they gave us permission to meet him. I went inside & saw him he was crying, his wife also crying loudly & saying his hand was hot means he has a lot of temperatures. Actually, he didn’t have any temperature & all were thinking that everything was finished. After a successful operation. Both were crying loudly now what can i do? I saw there another patient & told them why did you were crying,? see here so many patients were in the coma. They have a lot of difficulties to do their operation & your operation was very well done. You are talking well & then also crying. Both have lost their confidence with a lot of fear.I have given good counselling for both. Took money 150Rs from his Son to do ”Abhishek ” in the ”DATTA MANDIR ” temple. First, i told his son ”go to the temple & fill the money for ‘Abhishek ”He has a van with him i didn’t have any vehicle with me. But he refused to go to the temple & he gave me 100Rs & told take this money & you go to the temple. Then i went to the temple by walking about 1 KM , filled the money of his name for ”Abhishek & came back. Then i have to make food & some Diwali food items in my home. I haven’t eaten any food on that day as i have to go to the temple. So to come home there was 1 o’clock & up to this time i was with an empty stomach. Now he is in Okay condition.
I want to explain here one point that when God gives us some unhappiness in our life it is for to learn something.If we are not learning anything from it means we become totally animal or again we have to face this type of situation.
I am writing a post about Masala KHICHADI & telling you another story. So his cousin [MAMA] making Special Khichadi for him. He had told me a lot of times story of his Khichadi at first I thought he may be making something different. Now he was telling me a recipe for it. told one word that is Ajawine. I was new in Bombay i can speak Hindi very well but some hidden food items or new words didn’t know to me .& He was explaining to me about Ajawine. He explained me half an hour about that spice food item still we didn’t understand means, my husband, too. Now he tired by explaining told let us we shall go to the market to bring some new food items. So we went into the market. Both took some grocery & when he took grocery he took Ajawine pocket & i saw oh, this is ”OVA”in Marathi & they were tired by explaining it . To know this spice item he told us in a lot of ways, explaining its structure, it tastes it’s use everything but we didn’t understand. At that time we have laughed for half an hour.
Now he started to make it in front of me by showing it’s all recipe. So many times he was making it & smell of his Khichadi spreads through all building. I asked about his rice he told we were bringing rice from Shimala from Himachal Pradesh. & really he was making Khichadi or rice the whole building was taking a smell of it.
So here is his recipe.
