Prabha's Falooda


After an intensive Corel Draw tutorial, P and I went around searching for a much needed sugar high. We decided to have chocolatesandwiches. When Hari’s super sandwich joint was closed, we went to the Lassi bar nearby to mitigate our disappointment. I ordered Royal Falooda. It was a nice baby pink colour as a falooda should be. P took some time to make up her mind and then ordered the same thing.  She had to wait a while. In front of our eyes the falooda man carried a strange poisonous looking brown bottle, opened the freezer and poured a generous amount of mysterious stuff out of it into one of the containers inside. Then he mixed it well. Then he poured some more brown bottle stuff and mixed some more…

 ‘What is it? What is it????’ Prabha frantically craned her neck to see. 
‘That is what he is going to serve you’ I said.
‘No! No!! No!!! Please God no!’ said P frantically, ‘I want to know what is in that bottle!’

We knew what was in that bottle when her falooda was served. It was bright pink in colour. At least 6 times more pink in colour than my falooda.
I hope she is still alive.

Prabha: Your eyeballs will be stained pink from what you drank. Check in the mirror.

Robyn: I don't want to be reminded to explain what a Falooda is for a loooong time.
