This morning went to the nearby super market to get the vegetables and some other household articles. There in one corner was a huge stack of these double-yolk eggs.

Patla Macher Jhol

The monsoon here, and the humidity rising. All those days when it doesn’t rain in those tropical areas, I presume it is absolutely painful to live. More so when it comes to have food. Living in the heart of Kolkata for a long, long time, I understand the feelings of those people now in the…
