A dish of bhelpuri and philosophy

Bhelpuri – a wonderful chat item that is a combination of sweet, sour and spicy tastes. Each of these unique flavors blend together to create a great dish.

Imagine that the bhelpuri has not been mixed properly. A piece of hot green chutney hits your tastebuds and you scream. The next bite has a bit more of sweet chutney and you relish it all the more after that having had that attack on your tastebuds.

Now imagine that more than the necessary amount of sweet chutney has been added. You would probably wrinkle your face in disgust on tasting it. You need a little bit of sour and spicy to create just that perfect flavour.

Isn’t our life just like that? A mix of sweet, sour and spicy moments? Too much sweet makes life dull. A few sour or spicy moments from time to time would create a more balanced life and would help us relish the sweet moments even more. We need to savour life as a whole instead of reflecting only on sweet times or sour ones…
