Doubles Man Cometh 

Subba Rao 

Here comes the Doubles man, Its lunch time already? 

Two Doubles please. Hot pepper? Little bit. Weak stomach? Yeah man. 

Two more please for Ian Where is Ian Borringer today? He is busy in the
lab, Ian lived on doubles for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When is 
going back to Switzerland? He is going nowhere; He is addicted to 
Doubles. 

Doubles? It is a lunch snack in Trinidad. An East Indian culinary
byproduct, made from two pieces of deep fried small circular flat bread 
‘Bara' colored yellow with turmeric slapped with Channa or Chickpeas 
curry in between with a pat of Scotch Bonnet pepper sauce. A complete 
meal. 

Wait a minute I figured it out its origin. Yeah? Bara is a miniature
Puri What? Deep fried circular flat bread called Puri was invented in 
India, A quintessential snack eaten with curry for breakfast, lunch and 
dinner. 

In Trinidad it is made like a small sandwich To hold it with two fingers
to shove it into mouth. Two miniature yellow Puris with curry became 
Doubles in Trinidad. You stole our invention shouted Juggernaut with 
mouthful of Doubles. Boy, give us a break nah, Doubles is our own 
culinary invention in Trinidad, lamented the Doubles Man. 

The Doubles man built a two-story house In Arima, Sent his two sons to
college, Married off his daughter with a big dowry, With money earned 
from selling Doubles on the University Campus. That's East Indian 
Entrepreneurship.
