What I actually do at 7 A.M. or P.M. depends on my mood , situation and patience 🙂 If I wake up early in the morning by 5 45 or 6 I would be in gym by that time but the cool lazy Bangalore mornings force me to switch off the alarm and I usually end up in gym by 7 : 30 or some times 8 or even 9. I watch TV only while eating or if I come across some thing interesting while browsing through innumerable channels. More than TV watching I do browsing.
Anyway today I was travelling in the bus from Hyderabad to Bangalore and it was around 7 by the time I reached home. As soon as we got down the first thing we did like we always do is buying “Nandini” milk packets from a vendor near by. As we both are chai freaks that’s the priority when the day starts 🙂 As and when I entered the house I boiled the milk. Of course I brushed my teeth before I did that !

The image of boiling milk always feels good. Pasteurization is very much needed to preserve the milk and I have been taught this many times as my dad works in Dairy department 🙂 Even if you don’t have fridge at home boiling milk at regular intervals preserves it. In India boiling milk is a ritual on many festival days. We have 100s of sweet dishes which have milk as a major ingredient. As per my mom’s instructions I even boiled milk on the first day we entered our new home. It actually is a Hindu tradition but followed by most of the south Indians. The milk is allowed to overflow and spill over. This symbolizes that our new lives would be overfilled with wealth , health and happiness 😉 Once the boiling gets over the rest of it in vessel is used to make some sweet !
Below is my milk boiling pic at 7 A.M. today morning 🙂
