100 Days of Happiness – Day 31

It’s easy to find sadness each day, but to find a moment of happiness is difficult. Last year, I couldn’t bring myself to finish the 100 Days of Happiness challenge. This year, I am more determined to finish it โ€” Counting down to 2016 with Happiness!


The Happiness of Comfort Food at Home

100 Days of Happiness – Day 31


If happiness and food go hand in hand, thereโ€™s nothing like comfort food made at home in a jiffy to bring joy in a jiffy too. When the grandmom is not that hungry, and says she will finish whatever little was left over from lunch instead, we decide not to make a lot of items and instead have something light. Today, it was bhel puri and boiled plantain. I love bhel puri, but itโ€™s the boiled plantain that I love more. It is food for every mood, and any time, be it breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner. This is simple food joy. No questions asked!

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. More than boiled plantain, I love pazham pori (plantain dipped in wheat flour batter and crispy fried)! And you are right, when happiness and food go hand in hand, it’s heaven!
