My mum's still not that old, but I'm making sure to note all those little recipes down before the inevitable. If I'm fortunate enough to get married, I somehow doubt the modern Sikh woman knows anything about those old-school alaaj that our elders used. Paracetamol doesn't cut it anymore, lol. I'm not leaving myself at the mercy of ignorance.
lol see it makes sense y sikhi is dead/dying in doaba and the people who ticked the sikh box from them only a minority are amritdhari/kesdhari
seeing a young singh is actually not common at all in nawanshahr/doaba
I never really felt it in my youth, but in my 30s I realise how important the food we consume is to how the body responds to it. All those desi daane and masale and whatnot really do make a difference during recovery. It's wonderful to have those little specific cultural items and bits to fall back on that perhaps aren't used in the English culture.
