Among the many proverbs that my father taught me is this one:
Enough is as good as a feast.
போதும் என்ற மனமே பொன் செய்யும் மருந்து
We all attend many marriage functions and in the wedding feast one of the ubiquitous sweet
is the beet-root halwa.
In pre-served feasts the BRH is served in every leaf.
I find that seven out of ten never touch this item.
I for one relish this sweet and if any server asked me "Is there anything else you want?"
and I reply " Some BRH, please", many around look askance!
When so much of BRH is going waste!!
Costs having escalated, I think it is high time that all wedding feasts be turned to buffet
and people just took what they want, as much as they want.
