After dinner with some relatives, John tries the sweet Paan for the first time! From the aloo paranthas and curd in Punjab to paneer dosas of Mumbai to the freshly cooked Gujarati meals at the Gandhi Ashram, the food has been amazing! We keep thinking it's going to go downhill any day but it just keeps getting better.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the children at ManavSadhana eat some of the most nutritious as well as delicious meals in the area. Every day they have milk and ghee (which is uncommon for any hostel in India) as well as ladoos every week. ManavSadhana also runs many nutritious centers around the city for children as well as newborn babies and their mothers.
