Realization by sipping tea

This is not the most profound realization I have had but I feel compelled to write something. Now a days, everything I write is with the aim to publish it somewhere. Though writing is still fun and I still choose to write what I want, I miss writing to you, here.

So here is something I realized sitting at this beautiful park next to my house. It is a cloudy day in spring and the weather is like it is in Mahabaleshwar.wpid-20150512_090114.jpg

As I sit here, sipping tea and enjoying the peace after finishing all my chores for the day and sending my hubby away to work, my thoughts drift to the rare times I drink tea.

I remember making tea for an American sister of ours. How I had not added sugar as she doesn’t take sugar with tea. In most households in India, we make tea by heating everything together – water, milk, sugar and ginger and lemon grass depending on individual taste. From what I personally know of US and UK, there is no one pot of tea, there is black tea water separate, milk separate, sugar separate and …. this gives me two realizations.

1 There is respect and consideration to each individual more in US than in India which makes me feel safe and comfortable here.

2 Also, I find tolerance and the ability to adjust is more in India than in US. (This is my personal opinion from my personal experience) Just sharing!

  1. I agree with both your realisations as well as your experience which is quite true. You find more respect and consideration in the US whereas you find more tolerant and adjustable people in India than in the US.
