Women retire from office but they don’t get retirement in the house. Some women like to retire from house work especial from the kitchen and sit appada and get work managed by others. But some women whatever age they are they want to do everything in the kitchen , make tasty dishes for everyone right from their spouse till their grandkids. They feel it is their right to run the kitchen , they manage well also , not only they do the cooking they are very good in catering the food to everyone also with their love and affection. So nice to see everyone sitting together and having lunch and the eldest women of the house serving everyone. Some take the help of their daughter in law’s to help them out in serving but some tell everyone to sit and she will serve everyone as she knows the taste of each and everyone. My grandmother til she was hale and hearty she only used to do the cooking and my mother used to assist her in the cooking and serving part my mother only used to do it. By 7 a.m. my grandmother’s cooking used to be over in those days when there were no grinder, mixie etc. Those days there was no breakfast 10 a.m. lunch, 2 p.m. coffee with some snacks and night 8 pm dinner and by 10 pm. the lights are off and everyone will go to bed. But now a days with many children abroad or staying separately there is not retirement for ladies. Only thing its their pleasure to make tasty food for their husband and they have less work. But they feel sad that when children were there the house was full with their laughter and masti and now the husband will be busy reading paper or any prayer book and she busy with house work , reading prayer book or logging in to the computer. For me also no retirement in house work as my son and dil are staying separately. They come home whenever they are free or we go to their house. But when I go to their house my dil never allows me to do any work , so I have rest there. But we don’t like to trouble them always as they are working people and only one day they get rest. When I was working my husband used to help me out in kitchen work and many of my friends used to be jealous of me.Now after retirement he does not come to the kitchen and I am the kitchen queen of my house.
