I found a long lost friend of mine on orkut. We were friends during our school days.She was my junior at school. As we were neighbours we used to go for tuitions together.We were not in touch for around 13 years now.When we finally started chatting she asked me the recipe for my ammas beans thoran. It seems my amma had served her chapathi and beans thoran 13 years back. And she still remembers it!! What could have made amma happier than this?
