Dheel de dheel de de re bhaiya



Happy Makar Sakranti! Or as we call it in Gujarat, Uttrayan. I'm sure I've blogged about this before, but it was such a wonderful part of my college years that I can't help but go back in time.

On this fateful day, every selfrespecting Amdavadi retreats to his/her (or a friend's) place in the old city.From morning till evening, the skies of the city resemble a colorful battleground dotted by millions of kites trying to outdo each other. If you've read the Kite Runner, multiply that by a thousand. The only breaks taken are to gorge on a delicacy prepared only for this day called undiyu.

As all my friends were migrants to the city, thankfully 2 of our guju friends had a place in the old city to host us and moms who cooked the best undiyu in the world!

Happy Uttrayan Amdavad..go get them!
