Check out my ode to kheema samosas in the Huffington Post today.
A few years ago, I approached my desk after a morning meeting and was greeted by giant glossy color images of donuts, burgers, ice cream, and french fries plastered on the wall of my cubicle.
This was my then-boss’s charming way of helping me ring in in the first day of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month that requires fasting from sunrise to sunset.
I guess you’d have to know her personality and sense of humor — “quirky” doesn’t begin to describe it — but while some of my colleagues were furious on my behalf and threatened to report her to HR, I was mostly unfazed.
Because if she had really wanted to make me suffer, she would have posted eight-by-seven pictures of kheema samosas instead.
