It was saying that I heard that in Hindus chota neyi hona chaiye as all the elders tell the younger to do the work.In muslims it is the duty of elders to do the work and it is said that while elder brother is there younger is not supposed to do the work. These were traditions I dont know how far these are correct or feasible
Let us go in the kitchen no fasilities as that of modern age were avaailable in those days .I just remember the earthen pots , handia alliminium utensils and some degchi and thalies and katoris and chamamchs herth was of six bricks stacked in the saquare with one side open.To fire the chula it was a tough job .My mother used to blow air from her mouth so that the wood could catch fire .After the food was ready we all sisters and brothers sat around the chula and took the food in the kitchen It was the duty all to wash hands before entering in the kitchen sit and remember the god before taking first loaf of roti.With the dedication of our mother we all were brought up and were happy.Here I have become emotional and pay a sharandhjli to my mother and may God give her peace in Heaven.
