Ah. The pain of your love changing and becoming someone you didn’t know. But what do you do when your coffee does the same to you?
I have loved you since ages, oh dear!
To be precise, 1995, was that year.
You were so special to me.
Yet I would whip you and beat you, so easily.
I would make you into a paste,
Mind you, I did it in no haste.
Adding sugar to you with a spoon.
When you’d be thick and frothy, I would swoon.
A few drops of milk would make you gooey,
You’d be whisked until golden ombre and creamy.
My fragile hands would go with a steady speed.
I was just ten but twenty minutes was all I did need.
To save the muscle work, I would store you in the fridge.
A dollop of you and between hot and cold I would switch.
Cocoa, crumbled biscuits or honey, you’d be topped with,
You proved that love happens just once – is a myth.
You would melt and so did I.
You were the apple of my eye.
You would be sweet and pillowy.
You could change my mood better than a movie.
Now in 2020 you have millions of lovers,
I see you on Tiktok, Instagram and even on Facebook covers.
You’re trending all over the internet and everywhere.
I wish to tell the world about our love affair.
Now that you have catapulted to a worldwide fame,
My cup of Joe, you’ve forgotten your dame.
So today I say – you might change your name but you are mine!
My ‘pheti hui coffee’, sorry I didn’t know you were ‘Dalgona’, you’ve been simply desi and divine!
If I’d only known that my culinary skills have immense potential globally,
I would have joyously brewed on Tiktok, a ‘filter kapi’, daily!
The centuries old Indian Kapi would have been sold across the globe in boutique cafes, Broski.
Dalgona – All would’ve known that in India you are Kahaani Ghar Ghar ki!
