I was born in a typical Punjabi family. The youngest of three siblings, my parents were working class citizens who taught us values and most importantly to have fun and an optimistic attitude towards life. I took those value systems to heart and sought fun.
Studies, they were just another chore to be done because you don't have other choices. I never displayed a remote liking to food or like some prodigy-chef started cooking at 5 or 6.
I was busy being harangued by my older brothers. Yes, I do remember helping my mother with the occasional jobs in the kitchen but then that was it.
