My friend Eashwaramma. (how the other half lives ...) Part 3.

Eashwaramma took Sasi, her grandson, to Tirupathi for treatment. Chinapaapakka also went with her grandson. There the treatment expenses were more than what they expected, and there was only twenty rupees to spare. They had taken a 500/- rupee note - well over what they could spare.

Eashwaramma and Chinapaapakka had one idli each. For Sasi they got two puris. That was their sustenence for the day. They all came back very very tired and hungry.

Eating out is not for pleasure for most Indians ... it is a punishment of semi starvation.
