I had been thinking about this for a while now, how little, inexpensive things give us endless joy, somethings that even money can't buy!
This one tops my list! Think of getting up from deep sleep on an early hour in the morning, and you start planning for the day ahead, dreading the traffic to work and all. And then in a flash, you realise it's a Sunday morning. You can snooze off for a couple of hours at least. The realisation that it's a Sunday is priceless, no amount of money can buy you that kind of joy!
There is nothing that matches a cool lemonade on hot summer day - no cocktail, no fizzy drink can beat that taste.
There is nothing that matches the aroma of warm, freshly baked bread with butter and a warm cup of tea. That magical aroma will always be etched in my mind.
No gourmet chef can match a fresh warm puffed chapatti with a bowl of steaming tadka daal - I guarantee that this simple fare will tempt you to overeat!
There is nothing that matches the smell of the soil when it rains and nothing matches the joy of getting drenched in a cool downpour, providing you have hot ginger tea and pakodas waiting for you at home!
As I ran these little joys past Neeti, she rightly said, "For everything else there is a MasterCard!"
