    Dear Thyagarajan Sir,

    Thank you for your thread. I read the writings of Mahaperiyava recently forwarded by a friend. Perhaps, that is the talk Smt. Jayasala is referring to. Sankaracharya clearly explains the scientific benefit behind the South Indian cuisine being served in a particular order. He even explained the rationale of eating in banana leaf. What fascinated me is Periyava's revelation that eating yogurt every day prevents us from visiting Dentists often.

    :hello: Yes indeed. But I am yet to discover the reason for the absence of rasam.
    2. Just now from my first floor balcony I see little ahead in the east opposite green painted wide entrance of the Amma Canteen.
    3. It is all located at places where the labour force in general and construction workers in particular throng. For construction workers food is free. They have just to show ID Proof before self served.
    4. I shall in the next opportunity try to find out from Amma as to reasons for not providing rasam in the menu.
    Thanks for visiting here and Regards.

    No, no, Sir. You stay put healthy and you don't like to listen to Amma's sufferings towards her end of life. I feel the only reason she decided to use only sambar sadam and thayir sadam is for operational convenience such as easy to eat, pack, etc. Moreover, for some good reason, the labor force like sambar better than rasam in Tamilnadu. Perhaps, the vegetable content gives them a feeling of eating nourishing food.

    :hello:What an wonderful statement ! Essence of rasam squeezed out in this Carnatic song composed by Sadasiva Brahmendra rendered in raga Ahir Bhairav of Indian classical music.
    2. In this context one remembers, In the feedbacks of feb 2020 award winning Grandma's Rasam
    grandma’s rasam by @Anusha2917 too various shades of connotation of tamil word “RASAM” brought out.
    3. Thanks for bringing out all encompassing Rasam encyclopaedia.

    Regards.
    GOD - you had provided nectar in fruits’ rasam.
