“There’s a separate happiness that comes with satiating people’s hunger, unlike no other. Take it from a street vendor selling Badam milk at a popular corner for over 5 years now- while the work might seem monotonous, the journey, overall, is nothing short of exciting!
Even today, when a person steps into the vicinity I get thrilled to see the reaction in their face, for the sheer size of my cauldron and the amount of milk bubbling in it usually gets their eyes widening with astonishment. Now, with kids, it’s a visible jaw drop and an immediate nudge to buy them a glass of the rich yellow beverage. Again, what starts with just one ‘test’ glass eventually multiplies into four or five more, chugged down slowly alongside a strong request to add more malai on top of them all! And as I happily oblige to each of these requests, I can’t help but chuckle a little on the magical feeling that food brings in, especially when one relishes it to their heart’s content”
