Jugnu loves to cook, with his golden belan he makes perfect round rotis and all his friends envy him for his skill and hence started mocking at him. One day Jugnu loses his golden belan and from then he thinks he cannot cook. He is scared and feels lost but then his granny says that the magic is not in the rolling pin but in our hearts and with strong will power you can do anything in the world. Such a small yet inspiring story.
This inspirational story is the latest creation of Master Chef Vikas Khanna, who is goodwill ambassador of SMILE Foundation and is determined to bring smiles to all the kids whose rolling pin is lost.
I got this golden opportunity to meet such a humble person on one of the lunch occasions organized by “Hilton Embassy Golf Links” Bangalore and heard him reciting this simple yet motivational story.
It struck me then that yes small things like rolling pin are though insignificant in our day to day life but they are so important and without which we cannot think of making round and perfect rotis.
Similarly we have so many important things in our life but as they are small we just forget them. I thought to pay my tribute to “The rolling pin” which is lying in one of the drawers of our kitchen but without it we cannot serve the meals to our families and make them happy, satisfied and content.
With this rolling pin, My memory flashes back when my granny used to sit in front of the earthen Chulha and roll chapatis for us. All the kids were running around her asking for more and now all the us have grown and have flown to far lands in search of Roti, Kapada and makkan and in search of finding their identity but we have lost the taste of those rotis which our granny used to make, We just call her sometimes but now never sit next to her and ask her to make those round perfect rotis.
Let me ask her once more to roll her rolling pin and make those same tasty and heavenly rotis.
This small rolling pin is an important factor to bind our families’ together. Thank you Master Chef Vikas Khanna for making me realize the importance of insignificant.
