Flavour

The cost holds back the mother
from buying the food;
her child desires...

The food, I relish, loses its flavour!

யோவ்! costக்கும் flavourக்கும் என்னைய்யா சம்பந்தம் ? Even dilute rasam would be very tasty, won't it be ? if mother makes it with love.

Photo, though appropriate, looks like is from a restaurant where they serve food on a round ever-silver plate kept on banana leaf, or is this is the way your mother serves everyday ?

Poem என்ன சொல்ல வர்றதுன்னு புரியல (not able to understand what the poem is trying to convey)...

A New Beginning said...

Yes, when you sit and eat and all of a sudden you see someone begging, the food loses its flavour, how can one eat, when a hungry soul is begging for food...its painful...
Thanks for posting such a powerful thought in a few simple words, I guess that an art Mani excels in :) isn't it!!

lets not talk about the words you put to life, but the thoughts ! poverty indeed is one thing to discuss about, talk about and deal about just when its an age where the poor becomes poorer and the rich richer :) cheers mate !

Mani,
Touched by the post.
Was it based on a true story or imaginary?
Either way, its a reality..
(Between, there is lot of food getting wasted in Lady's hostel here everyday..)

Taste ...
Why God is good for only a few??

venus66 said...

Beautiful thought.

manivannan said...

#Slow Processor

Yeah...it happend Hasna...it's true...the sad thing was they were not beggars :(

But can't you send them to any nearby ashrams or give them to people who live on roadsides??

Also, my friend, do you know, the amount of food wasted every year could feed to one-third of the world's poverty(I forgot the exact statistics)??

So, God is biased, eh? :-)
