Hello once again. I hope you all have somehow managed to digest my first post. I would like to thank all of you who read and commented online/offline.

I would like to dedicate this post to all my super greedy friends who "live to eat" and not "eat to live". This is also a tribute to the entire “live to eat” fraternity who are putting their constant effort to eradicate the global food supply. People who are engaged with the noble civil war with their respective digestive systems across several generations and centuries. Guess who gave them the power to combat all obstacles in the path of achieving excellence in invasion. A tiny warrior called Antacid. A light year old phenomena which still holds the victory flag high. Victory against the devils named gas-ombol-gola-buk jaala-pet byatha-bomi-bomi bhaab etc. regionally and indigestion, globally.

The ever-increasing desire to eat takes off from the first taste of tongue. I remember that I read somewhere that the taste buds of greedy people blooms much quicker than others and remains healthier with the increase of greed, in comparison to others. The consequence of over consumption (a basic common complication seen in greedy Indians) generally varies from person to person. The Antacid hence comes in different shapes, sizes and are applied according to the damage creating ability of the devil.

Eating I guess is nothing but a master festival. The festivals which we celebrate throughout the year actually revolves around the master. Imagine how puny will be a Durgapuja without the Khichri and Pulaw bhog, Deepawali without Laddoos & other delicious sweets, Ramzan without Halim, Id without Biryani and Sewai, Christmas without the Cake and cookie and so on. Even the best part of Karwa Chauth starts with it’s end, when a long fast gets broken with sumptuous food. So friends, eat tight and leave the worries to Antacid.

FYI, Durgapujo is just 60 days away from us. Hence, apart from the traditional annual shopping plans, strategize your eating plans as well. You may refer to a brilliantly made sample plan for the days of the festival, provided you are stationed in Kolkata or adjoining areas during the pujas :

Shasthi : Dinner at Azad Hind, Uluberia, NH-6

Saptami : Lunch at Tero Parbon, Goalpark. Dinner at Beijing, China Town.

Astami : Lunch (Khichri bhog) at Pandal. Dinner at home (Veg. Luchi, Cholar Daal, Dum Aloo & Gaajar ka halwaa)

Navami : Lunch at Oh! Calcutta, Forum or Silver Spring. Dinner with Phuchka, Batatapuri & Ice cream. Dig in. Keep your brand of Antacid with you, at all times.

Apart from indigestion, an Antacid may prevent you from loads of other complications and digest the unexpected agonies such as :

a. an obnoxious boss

b. a forthcoming film of Ram Gopal Verma

c. Sunny Deol, again in an Advocate’s role

d. Rendezvous with Rakhi Saawant

e. Usha Utthup etc.

Friends, as a proud member of the “live to eat” fraternity I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a great festive season ahead. “Eat and let eat” should be the oath of a civilized society at all times. Remember to keep your Antacid with you.
