Happiness is attending a home science class of special children.
Ask any food blogger for a recipe of dhal and rice and he may look at you with a raised eyebrow. This meal is the simplest and the most basic dish to make. But then, with special children, it is not so simple; it has to be taught, like many other things.
So today, I sat in a home-science class and closely observed eight special children while they happily stood in the kitchen learning the technique of making dhal and rice. They learnt to distinguish different spices by touch, color, smell and taste, they learnt about the value of hygiene during cooking, they learnt about quantity and quality of the food used during kitchen.
When the dish was ready for taste, there was a smile on every face in the room.
