Crazy Potato

When crazy potato became a Teacher

Have you ever learnt from a Potato? No, here is the incident which made me realize that pressure isn’t the boss, but patience is.

Early morning I tried making Poha(an Indian dish) with a new recipe. I used to make it with boiled potatoes using pressure cooker but unlike before, this instance I tried to fry potatoes in a pan.  A person who has patience issues like me can’t wait for it to get fried.

Rather than what and how I made, I felt, the lesson learnt was something that might change a small part of my life.

I always used to think the only way to make any dish with potatoes is to boil it in a pressure cooker. But this time I tried making it in a different way which required patience and a bit more effort.

It took me 15 more minutes than the usual time to make Poha. I was determined that it will not turn out the way I wanted them to. But still with that doubt in my mind, I attempted this new method and I was successful.

So the lesson learnt was “you can’t make a leader or bring up good qualities in a person with Pressure. It needs patience, determination and effort to create one”.

Now, time has come for tengo que comer Patata.
