IDLI

Saraswati toils her day making Idli’s and selling it in various locations of Chennai.. at 10cents  for 2 Idli’s.   One day..

Rick ”isn’t it weird.. everywhere I see these white puffed food and people eating it.. Let’s have one’

He stops at a stall ‘give me IDALY’

Rick’s friend Ramu begins laughing.. Not IDALY.. It is IDLI

Rick gobbles two. for Rs6 and finds it amazing..

Rick ‘who is the owner of this’

The stall person informs ”Saraswati”

Rick ‘wow.. I will want to have this in US”

Saraswati informs in Tamil ”it will not sell there.. who will make the dough.. who will make the puffed rice.. cookers are not in vogue in US”

Ramu translates to Rick

Rick ”no worries.. we will make Idli packs and send it as breakfast.. but I want you there”

Saraswati ”how is it possible.. visa etc”

Ramu ”do not worry Sir, many South Indians  out there in US. we will start one”

3 months latter

Rick ”what a business. it is selling hot in Jersey City, NY and never knew i would make a business out of IDLI”

Ramu on skype ‘Saraswati wants to open more franchise.. will you invest?”

Rick ”of course.. Idli is one of my favourite dish now on.. pack up time for fat PIZZA’s’
