Dear Diary-6

Dear Diary,

Week started disastrously. Landed in Bangalore and, sticking to standard protocol, drove straight to MTR, hoping to feast on some super-soft idlis and incredibly crisp dosas. Found, to my utter dismay, that the place was closed on Mondays. Have you heard such nonsense in your life? A restaurant closing on Mondays? I mean, don’t they know that people need to eat all seven days a week?

On the other hand, I am happy that somebody’s adopted the calendar that I had painstakingly and single-handedly designed some time back.

While leaving for the airport to catch my return flight, made a quick dash to Blossoms, that great place in Church Street for second-hand books and picked up a couple of classics. Realised later that books, being neither soft nor crisp, are a poor substitute for MTR idlis and dosas.

Indian Restuarants here in the US are closed on Mondays and there are 2 reasons to that.

1. Sundays, generally, are good business days with large orders and stuff and so generally the restaurant is over worked that day. So, monday is a rest day.

2. Amongst the consumers here, there is a belief that Indian Restaurants serve old food on mondays - reason being - again Sundays are full rush days and the hotels cook more to meet the rush and are invariable left with leftovers - which, the people suspect is served on mondays.
