Idli philosophy -Part II
Fat and cheap Idli vs Thin and costly Dosa
(I wanted to further write on philosophy of Idli and chanced to read post of Hamsabai Santhana Krishnan. I have just added two or three more points to what she has already written in Tamil )
One Idli is made of one ladle dough and so is one dosa
One Idli costs ten rupees , but One Dosa costs forty rupees
1.Idli is a small circle , Dosa is a large circle,
Teaching us that if our mind is made in to bigger circle ,
Rather than a small circle , the respect we get would go up
2.To make 50 idlis it takes fifteen minutes,
But too make 50 dosas it may even take I one hour,
Proving that if you do not hurry up in your jobs,
The value of your job would definitely go up.
3. Idli is fat and does not have any taste of its own,
Bur Dosa is Slim and has a taste of its own,
Any thin person with his own ideas is wise and liked by more
And any fat one without any idea of his own is a fool and is not liked by many
4.Idli is prepared without any other thing except the dough,
Dosa is prepared by adding oil to the dough.
A fat person who does not get knowledge is not liked,
But a thin person who has knowledge is liked.
5.The varieties of Idli using the normal dough is limited,
The varieties of Dosas using normal dough is nearly one hundred,
The esteem of a person depends on how many forms he can shine.
And so Idli rarely shines but Dosa shines forever.
