Papa said, 'It is not bitterly cold'. Bitterly cold. Why do many often say that? I began writing these lines because I want to separate the sensation cold from the taste bitter. 'It is bitterly cold!', I write now, thinking of bitter gourds being harvested amidst snow and cold winds. What could be the most warmth bestowing food items prepared from bitter gourds? I don't care at present. I imagine a boiling soup. But I haven't thought the details of preparing the soup. Green in colour?
