Food is essential for us as it provides us energy and nourishment so necessary to exist and carry out our day to day work. God has been kind enough to create so many varieties of cereals, vegetables, grains, fruits and dairy products. And for the non-vegetarians there are so many kinds of meat, fish, eggs etc.
Along with energy and nourishment the food also provides us good taste which makes us happy and delighted. As such it provides a bond of love between the cook, generally the womenfolk and other members of family. There are different foods for different part of the day, different seasons, different occasions, and different festivals and so on. In fact food is such an essential part of any culture and civilization that it has become a cultural identity of people, places, regions and nationalities. A person is so attached to food that he misses it the same way he misses his place of origin if he is staying far away from his home.
