Beauty and the Bread


Beauty and the Bread


don’t know if you have noticed, but food is becoming prettier by the minute. There was a time in the past when the world was new, when food looked like food. A roti looked like a roti and a dosa like a dosa, and rice and meat curry looked like rice and meat curry. (And the khichri from dadi’s kitchen looked like the dog’s upchuck, but nobody minded, because it tasted surprisingly yummy and khichri was never supposed to be a contender for Miss India anyway.)

But now all food looks super pretty and so aesthetic that if this trend is left unchecked, by next year even the vada sambar sold by the man on the bicycle at the corner of your neighbourhood will look exactly like Aishwarya Rai.
