After getting to know about 5rs meals provided by Hare Krishna movement, I thought I'd like to try out the meal once. It never happened. That box is a stone's throw away from my living place yet, I never tried it. I preferred to order it online than to walk a few steps and have this lunch.
As I do things unplanned I was hitchhiking and got dropped near one of the 5rs meal boxes. I looked at it. I looked at the time. I jumped into action and went to the counter to have a meal.
It's funny how people perceive depending on places, and attire. I went in good attire and handed him a 50rs note. The cashier seemed authoritative and put a look which I read as, "Change Kaun Deta tumko? Paanch rupiyee nahi he??" I honestly didn't think much about the change. Though he had loads of change, he denied giving me. He asked me to take two meals of rice (10rs). I was okay with it. All I wanted to have was a meal.
He served me rice, Sambar, cucumber curry. Pickle was finished before I could go.
It's a decent meal. Everything seemed hygienic. Being there, having this meal taught me to appreciate the food I got for such amount. Thanks to the government for providing food for such price. Thanks to the Hare Krishna for a decent meal.
