It is interesting to observe the difference in the feedings when the weather is this hot. No one wants to be out in the mid-part of the day, so we have a big rush at the 11.30am opening and are pretty much finished with the bulk of the people within 45 minutes. Usually these feedings last for 2 hours or more.
The menu for today consists of seasonal summer vegetable curry with potatoes, puri, khir, and cold water. The cold water is a smashing hit! The food is tasty and spicy. The children do not stay around too long afterward. They are in a hurry to get home and avoid the intensity of the afternoon sun. At the end of the day, one of the last boys to eat had his shoes taken after being here for less than 15 minutes. He does not seem to be half as disturbed as I am for him. Alas, that is part of the culture here and it won't be his last time losing sandals.
