Ranu came as usual to meet the family .They did not plan anything,Gepetto thought he would see if he remembers the words he learned from Ranu.She gave him a quiz. “All right ” she said, here is a test for you.”I will print the words for you , It is your turn to print them under the correct heading.The following are the words:  roti, naam,murghi, Jama Masjid, paani, khana, Nizamuddin Awliya, Qutub Minar, tumhara naam kia hai? mazaydaar,The categories are :”,Now put them under the proper heading ,you have 5 minutes.”

Name               Food               Building                drink                Saint          Tasty           Mosque

naam                Roti                   Qutub Minar      Paani              Nizamuddin mazaydaar  Jama masjid

What is your name?”How did I do?” Perfect ,Ranu said.”  “Gepetto deserves to get a prize for his perfect score,how about it Alphie,Susan, I am impressed ,Susan said.”  Gepetto did not want to lose this opportunity. He asked his parents,”Can It be my pick?”  ” Yes!” was the reply.   I want to see the Taj Mahal,I read it is one of the seven wonders of the world. Ranu immediately said;  “I was hoping you would say that!” ” Now Gepetto it is not in Delhi,we have to go to Agra,it is not that far from Delhi,we can go by train or bus or even by air.The family and the guide decided it would be best if they planned to go the next day,they will have plenty of time to get tickets,they found out by reading the comments of the visitors,it is an unbelievable building and worth visiting.They recommend one should see the monument and get back to Delhi the same day.

Gepetto suddenly changed the discussion to the variety of foods. ”  Hey , You must be hungry?”  “slightly,but I really want to know some of the names.”   “All right ,Ranu  replied;  there is biryani which I cooked for my daughter’s friends,it is like a casserole.It has meat,rice,potatoes,yogurt,tomatoes,onions,and a lot of spices.Then there is Korma,which is not too spicy.We Bengalees are rice eaters ,we always have rice in our menu.There are a lot of recipes for meat ,dishes,we eat a lot of fish,so there are different recipes for fish.Are you hungry enough?”

“I have one more thing to tell you about before lunch.Have you noticed my name in the pictures,my name is a very common name,this is why you see it in the pictures.”

The family went to Mcdonalds for a quick lunch.After lunch they made plans for the following day.It would be busy.

Aphie said, “Let us relax today,Gepetto go for a swim and be careful!”

Once again it was time to say,    ” Allah Hafiz”   (May  Allah Take Care Of Us All)

  1. Greetings,

    Thank you for this post.

    I noticed your name on the photos. To what does it refer on so many places?

    The casserole you mention, with meat, rice, potatoes, yogurt, tomatoes, onions, and a lot of spices sounds quite nice!

    I hear the Taj Mahal is magnificent, being the manifestation of divine principles.

    Rest is good.

    All good wishes,
