Poet's Notes about The Poem

Wrote this thinking about my cooking routine. Hubby's too busy with work to cook. Children are too busy with studies to cook. So I'm the only one who has to spare the time to cook. Back home in India, we all used to take turns to cook (I, my mother, my father and our visiting relatives) and so cooking didn't seem to be a chore and I used to love cooking :) Now it has become a daily drudgery, having cooked here for more than 15 years and so when I want to have some food made by someone else (kisi aur ke haath ka khana) , then I have to bank on takeaways and home deliveries.

    This small piece of poetry is heart touching, an honest admission of what's happening in the mind of a house wife. Thanks, indeed. (Report) Reply
