யாரின் பிரியம் எதில்??? இங்கே பார்க்கவும்!!
It has been a while and here I am to continue our talk on cooking !!! I will try my best to post more frequently than before to keep the topic lively and in continuity !!
Do you know to cook??
Wondering why am I asking this?? If you ask this question to a 25 yr old girl a decade ago in India, she would look be like “what??? Of course, I do” or perhaps, she might get offended.
But, now, this question is perfectly acceptable and most of the times you would hear ‘I am learning!! ’.
Listen!!! There are many new girls out here from India for doing Masters…Oh my Goodness!!! I was shocked to hear things happening at their homes...one girl is so scared of the cooker whistle noise that she runs and stands near the bed room door while cooking rice. Another is like ' Do I have to use the gasket always while using the cooker?' and the other girl asks ' At what time point, I have to use the whistle?'.
There is an area called kitchen at home which was just occasionally visited by young girls at their homes back in India. Man,,,, girls will have to look for a place called "kitchen" using 'google maps' in the future :)-
While the scenario of modern girls’ knowledge about cooking is not too good, let’s try to think of how the guys were - a generation before!!!. In general, knowing to cook was not within every guy. I don’t think my father knows anything other than just boiling milk. But, now, guys coming abroad are much better. They cook as good as any other girl out here. Guys back at home seems to have improved little more than the previous generation, though not too much,as still, moms are too nice to them. It looks like they help out the family members by cleaning utensils, doing some shopping etc. Still many guys don't know the difference between 'chily and green chilies' or 'fenugreek and cumin seeds' !!!
Makkale! let's look at the various aspects of the question ‘Why to cook?’ in the next post - the question that seems to appear stupid or silly!!!
