I still remember those days when I was a child I used to see this whole process, by sitting at a side :) .
Mostly in the month of April every year , at my mom's place,Mom used to order good brand of wheat delivered at home.
To select good brand of wheat from stores , then order it, and afterwards get it plucked and finally make provision of storing it in such a way so that no way it get spoiled throughout the year.
Other major aspect of this tradition is to store it in a big, airtight containers.
I always find it much time taking and also after I get married I never did this kind of things.
But I always admire this system. This is the tradition due to which our parents and grand parents have spent and are spending a healthy life. This is the reason behind our healthy childhood and normal
day to day life.
Sometimes somethings become so common in our life that we rarely value them until it disappeares from our life.
The same life much of us around here on blogs spending now, right?
Just to get packed flours and cook it acoordingly. I also do the same at my home after my marriage. Fast life, fast cooking and fast weight increasing too ! :))
Fortunately, this time being at mom's place I got to click Mom's hands on these lovely moments and was gladly a part of all of this. I never even before my marriage even I was a part of such process, as always I was busy studying while I was at home, then I went to hostel for engineering , afterwards was doing job outside my home town, so this was something I knew uptil now,not something I did.
This is a first chance when Iwas an active part of the whole traditional process of plucking carefully stones and other items from Wheat.Then finally get it oiled well,mixing and storing it.
It really reminds me of secret of healthy life our my parents, grand ma-grand pa and great grand parents.
May be some day we will show this to our fast food lover niece-nephew or children and they might get a chance to see the tradition of India. Thought to blog about this to save this tradition of us with great pride and hight respects for those who did so much just to bring up their child with high nutritions and right food. :) Hats off to them !
