#India is in a #Lockdown to fight #Covid19 #Coronavirus – Day 33

0

Officially, sunday 26th April is Day 33. Began counting the lockdown from the day the Jantacurfew was imposed on the 22nd of March. 42 days since the Miss attended school within the confines of a classroom.

A board presentation was due for a bit of clean up. A short team call in the morning to sort things out and then it was back to weekend services.

Firstly the damage from the sesame oil had to be undone. Back to a tried and tested brand which is well recognized in the south of India. The oil has a sweet taste as it has a bit of jaggery mixed in to it. The Sesame oil is found to be rich in multiple nutritional components comprising chlorophyll, fiber, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin “E”.

Stocking up on vegetables for the next few days. The neighbourhood vendor had put out his stocks on display. His store attendants were unpacking vegetables from jute bags, cleaning them and preparing them for sales. One of the attendant unmasked himself and spat on the street. A warning was issued to his boss and subsequently all residents of nearby societies were cautioned about the conduct. The vendor apologized for his attendant’s conduct and promised that it would not be repeated.

The saga of one dish lunches continued. Morning was a change; everyone agreed for a breakfast of vegetable maggi. The sight of numerous colourful veggies made everyone forget about the mainstay which in any case is not exactly a healthy alternative. Lunch was a rice mixed with sesame powder and tempered with some peanuts, curry leaves, chana dal and some red byadgi chillies.

A heavy lunch meant a simple tiffin as it is called in south indian circles. Dosa with coconut chutney and curd.

Lot of reading, follow up on twitter action especially with respect to political developments in the country, COVID actions taken by various states made saturday truly a busy day. Mrs. had a need for chocolates and it was duly taken care of by undertaking an afternoon trip to a grocery shop.
