Chef

by Jaspreet Singh

A serious topic, yet a gentle tone. An ugly war yet beautiful writing. The descriptions of the tastes of India, and elsewhere, are truly tantalising. Just don't read it on an empty stomach

My thoughts during those days of demonstrations kept turning to the colonel's wife. On the third day of the demo's I gathered the courage to walk again to her residence but the orderly told me that Memsahib was in the living room taking dance lessons from an instructor. I waited on the lawns. Their dark forms, visible through the window whirled and spun, but I could not hear the steps.
