Uff this gloomy whether…As much as the rains cheer you …too much of it , especially a week full of clouds , rains and devoid of any sunshine , makes you fell dull and drain you off your enthusiasm… Sunshine gives a strange freshness, a new hope, maybe since its associated with the sunrise, a new day, a new morning….And with none of it for many days , may magive way for  depression…. Okay  i m not complaining, but too much of anything isnt good …. So yes, I got my dose of depression, last week , when it poured and poured, and I barely got a glimpse of any sun…just the lazy hazy whether….and more…I was alone at home with my kiddo , and , suddenly I began missing my mom , terribly….Gosh whats with these mood swings and women!! I didnt call though , cause I knew I ll burst in tears, for no apparent reason , and that would get everyone worried…. So to keep myself occupied ,so that no other thoughts creep in my mind, I decided to make something I loved eating when I was young…..And I remembered the simple tomato saar, or soup that Mom made… Lovely sweet,sour and mildly spicy ….and enjoyed hot with moms instant straight from the tawa phulkas, smeared with tup or homemade ghee…and laced with lots of love!!! And yes, my lil kiddo ,gave me a good company with the soup!! My lil Momma’s Boy!
