I have already told you about my cousin, the biologist and a cook par none. Now, she is upset about me writing about her cooking and cites the following episode:
Once she invited a leading scientist from Bayer, Mumbai for a lecture on entomology to her college.
Following the Indian tradition of honoring the learned, she invited him to her home for a lunch.
She claims the scientist liked the ‘food’ (which rhymes with ‘wood’ more than with ‘good’) that he carried all the leftovers with him to Mumbai.
Readers of this blog are aware that bed bugs suddenly and nearly disappeared from the surface of earth in last a couple of decades.
One of the rumors says that it was Bayer’s insecticide that became very successful.
