Whenever there is some festival, food is a must or else people may not come.
Yeah..true..I have seen very poor attendence when there is no prasad.
What one may call 'Langar', food is cooked in large quantities and people have wait long queue, they start pushing and fidgeting, even before the food is served.
There is enough food cooked for all but still, people have this phobia of not reaching food stall in time and are always afraid of going hungry.(what if food finishes??) They are too lazy to cook after this disappointment and are not willing to order the food from a restuarant, specially when their taste buds are drooling over the chosen menu.
But the food is very delicious and has a special taste which cannot be replicated at home. There is always a sweet dish in the plate.
During Guru Nanak festival, there is always Sindhi Curry, Rice, sweet bhoondi and mixed vegetables, puris, papads and pickle. soooo very yummy,,, and during Durga Mata festival there is this khichri (look I m drooling too), roshgolla, bhajiyas, puri, pickle and fried papad...
No surprise then , that there is so much dhakam dhukki.......
