It is ok!

Yesterday, I had the best Kulfi in Paris at Gandhiji. Of course, it is the best I had so far. My all-time favorite is Rasmalai. But, damn it. There are no Indian restaurants in Paris which features Rasmalai. There is a little sweet shop near Gare du Nord named Bhai Bhai which serves you Rasamalai. I wasn't impressed with their offerings. Anyways, here I am after eating the delicious Kulfi and my British friend has only one thing to say, "It is ok!".

Well how can one say "ok" after taking a bite of the most delicious Kulfi in the whole town. That is what the differentiates British. Isn't it? They are not easily impressed. They have an austerity plan as far as praise is concerned. The evening turned out to informative too. Do you know what OK means? It is derived from a military term - Zero(0) Killed.

Now Zero killed is ok is kulfi. Oh come on! The Kulfi... Forget it. I need to get back to work!

  1. The British are so hard to please, I'm surprised about their decision to rule over us for so long. India must have been awesome back then. We Indians can be very annoying. Maybe our ancestors were better. Anyway, great post! I'm craving some kulfi now and since I'm still here in India, I just have to run to the nearest 'nukkad' to get some yummy kulfi. Keep writing!

  5. Lol why is everyone after Brits,, reminds me to myriad American movie locking at British accent and their mannerisms. Lol

    reminds me of the funny Friends episode wherein they bring in a Brit guy - supposedly Monica's perfect match.

    Well try the gulab jamun next time with Britishers, most of them love it

    1. Definitely. The Brits refer to Indian restaurant as curry place. Borrowing from their vocabulary... Yes, I will try out gulab jamun at the next curry place. :)
