You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?
I used to maintain a book on quotations, metaphors and idioms when I was a kid, there was no internet kinda stuff.
One of the idioms that pops up is this one:
While others live to eat, I Eat to live.
Eat to Live – Basically it means that eating should not be one of your favourite hobby, one should eat healthy and survive. At least I am not to finicky when it comes to eating. As a matter of fact we need to eat to survive else we succumb.
Live to Eat- on the other hand refers to the fact that eating for you is something beyond just survival.
Given the fact of captivity, do I need to bother what I have been given to eat once taken captive, still given the choice I would go with rice, tea, pulses, egg and bread.
In this age I believe having internet access will be much of a boon when in captivity. we can keep posting our daily update on social media.
The above image is from a country side restaurant in India when we were en-route to Agra to see the beautiful Taj Mahal. These are called Dhabas in India and they serve some real good traditional Indian mouth watering and relishing dishes.
So next time you come to India make sure you visit one.
