pApA d' gReAt !!!

these fathers... uff...

i called up papa when he was still in school and asked him to get some Gulab Jamuns for me from Kaleva ( its a sweet shop in Gole Market CP)..

"yaar, wo mere liye bilkul ulta padega.. 3 km ka extra chakkar lagega..."

"papa, mereko nai pata.. aap bas lekar aao." ( me like a 10 year old kid)

"theek hai."

"theek hai weekh hai kuch nai. Aap kahin se bhi lao par lekar aao"

"theek hai dekhta hoon..."

and he disconnected the phone...

about an hour and a half later.. he came home... and had two bags in his hand.. i was like.. i had asked for just some Gulab Jamuns... kya le aaye...

and when i saw what was there in them... here is what they had

10 Gulab Jamuns... ek dum garma garam
10 Rajbhogs.. from my favorite Bengali Sweet Shop Sandesh...
& 10 Bengali Roshogullas... again from Sandesh...

now we are just three members at home... and mom does not eat a lot of sweets unlike me and papa... who are total sweet freaks...

we managed to have just 7 gulab jamuns... and the rest is there in the fridge... care for a party anyone?


love u dad :)
