Today’s topic is about breaking the stereotype in a family life situation,

 

Sunday mornings means I go to church!

Firstly to make it clear, I do like going for mass.

Also, it’s one time of the week when I get to hear my favorite choir sing and that’s awesome.

Today’s sermon gave me an idea which I had to convert into a blog post.

The thought is about 90% of us being part of a stereotype. When given a situation, 90% of us would always see just one side of it.

For me to convince you about being part of a stereotype, let’s look at a situation.

Situation:

There are 4 people in the family. The first person “A” enters home with an empty bottle. That person throws the bottle on the floor and then proceeds to hit one of the family member “B”.

There’s “C” who is reading the newspaper and is scared to interfere.

The last person “D” is engrossed using the smartphone and is scared to react.

 

So what did you imagine?

 

Did you imagine a drunk father entering the house post his drinking session and hitting the wife while the kids just watched and were scared to react?

It’s not wrong to think like that. I did that too.

Although, why couldn’t it be the elder sister entering home and raising her hand on the younger brother while the old parents watched because they were too weak to react?

It’s because we as a society show domestic and physical abuse only through the eyes of a drunk man!

To conclude, this topic did ring some bells and got me thinking about how we react to certain situations unknowingly.

We just don’t see the whole picture.We judge directly without proper research.

 

Either you can share my thinking or can question my thoughts. I’d love to hear your views on this topic.

Happy Sunday!

Anthony Bourdain, an American chef says,

“What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?”

That’s a golden line. Yes, I agree there is nothing better than someone preparing breakfast for you first thing in the morning.

The Gupta Family also agrees with the same.

Now you might ask, who’s the Gupta family?

Before i could tell you about them let’s see how they look like.

Here’s an image of all of their smiling faces.

The entire family loves to experiment with food and thus have a breakfast option for almost every emotion. They love Kellogg’s and thus it is mandatory that every variety of their breakfast must include the cornflakes.

To be precise, they have around 100 recipes. Yes, a whopping 100 recipes. Some are listed below;

  • Walnut cornflakes Choco balls – first crush waala nashta
  • cornflake coconut laddoos – best tiffin waala nashta
  • Peach cornflakes – bff waala nashta
  • cornflakes date shake – date waala nashta
  • cornflakes fruity yogurt – smile waala nashta
  • Walnut muffin and many more.

Just listing some of these have got me drooling. They have specific names for all these breakfast dishes. Like I said, they have something to feed you for almost every situation.

Like the walnut cornflakes Choco balls, that describes how the youngest son wants to impress his crush. So the family helps him by teaching him to make some Choco balls filled with walnuts so that his crush gets impressed too.

For the cornflakes fruity yogurt, the scene portrays Mr.Gupta getting upset whilst on a phone call and Mrs.Gupta realizing that her husband is not smiling makes up her mind to cheer him up. She goes ahead and makes a beautiful combination of cornflakes along with yogurt. When Mr.Gupta has it, after a bit of resisting he finally gives up and smiles widely.

Also, the cornflakes date shake portrays how Mr.Gupta decides to impress his missus by decorating the room with flowers, some candle lights and a date shake with cornflakes. Mrs.Gupta is impressed with his effort and the end result is a big success.

There are so many such instances where they use breakfast as a medium to cheer up the family member. No wonder everyone wants to head there and have the leisurely made breakfast. Trust me; with variety as such you will wait to be invited in their house.

Breakfast at your home will be something which will not make you happy anymore because of the nashta which is available in the Gupta house.

I would like you to watch this video which is just an introduction of the Gupta family and the curiosity which has spread among the entire locality. Everyone asks the family members just one question; “When are you calling us for breakfast?”

Here’s the video.

Also, do check out their playlist (YouTube-Kellogg’s) which has around 15 videos which have a good flavor of entertainment and also where there are many recipes which can be learnt. You too can impress many people by learning new dishes in a fun manner.

So i’m already waiting for the invitation. I want to have breakfast with them as i know for whatever i feel, they will surely have something to cheer me up with. Also with so many options i’ll be just wondering…. Aaj breakfast mein kya milega?
