Oops… I’ve done it again.
I’ve gone ahead and committed to being part of something that is adding to my anxiety-ridden life. One would think that being ‘experienced’ would rid me of all doubts. But tell me, does that one experience count?
I still get sweaty palms when I think about those panic-filled days that followed my decision to host a cake stall at a Durga Puja pandal. The emotional meltdown, the nail-biting moment when my oven quit on me and the stubborn cookies. So much happened in those days.
Why, then, did I push myself into that quicksand of nervous tension again? Perhaps to feel again that moment of elation when I stood behind the empty cake stands and plates, being cheered on by family and friends. That first moment of realisation of Maa’s wise words “…There is a pleasure in watching people eat the food you have cooked with love. You will know that someday.”
