Tiffin box: The quintessential symbol of love
Have some delightful experiences of a tiffin box? Share them here!
I would be surprised to hear if someone at some point in time has not had the good fortune of being given a packed tiffin box by their mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, wife etc.
Be it a toddler going to the play home, a child to school or a husband to work, most of them carry a hurriedly packed tiffin box/es that takes care of their hunger till the return home. Despite the busy work, be it a house-wife or a working woman, they take time to put a dish together to the children to eat at school and the husbands at the offices.
It can be a single box with a breakfast dish or a 3-tier carrier with rice, chapathi, gravy etc. Some even have a separate box for cut fruits, a bottle for buttermilk, and some snacks. Opening such a box brings a smile or at least a sigh of contentment.
Though times have changed, cafeteria and Swiggy have crept in our lives, the aura of the tiffin box is still unique, for it stands for the love and affection coming from a woman's heart.
