Day 181

CHICKEN KORMA SERVED AT THE FOREST GREEN RESTAURANT, associated with the Hotel Dallas in Syhlet, Bangladesh.

This is one of my favorite dishes.  No, I didn’t use the spoon to eat it with.  I picked it up in pieces of nan ruti for a scrumptuous meal.

Day 178

I SAW THIS VW BUG IN SYHLET, BANGLADESH WHICH brought back many memories of my teenage years.  This was a very popular vehicle in America in the 60s.

Day 175

I VISITED THE SHAH JALAL MAZAR in Syhlet yesterday.  This is a shrine for the Muslim Saint Hazrat Shah Jalal. Here is a Muslim Bengali feeding the pigeons.  Here is what I found at “Yahoo Answers.”
There was a man who was very poor, he could not afford anything. His business was poor. Despite all he would feed hungry birds, with scraps of food left over. And because the birds were so hungry and so grateful, they would thank the man for giving them food. And so in re-turn the birds prayed to Allah over and over again that the man would become richer! and luckier. Allah heard the birds prayers and slowly the man became richer and richer with strokes of luck! And his business was extremely successfull!!

My mum told me this story, basically the birds pray for you and thank you for feeding their empty stomachs! 😀

Feeding the Pigeons

Lots of grain for lots of pigeons!


Day 172

ALICE AT THE “FOREST GREEN RESTAURANT” in the Hotel Dallas building. Alice’s one favorite was mug dhal.  There is also vegetable curry and beef curry for this meal.
