“Yes, I born in India and came here some years ago,” replied 

Juggernaut politely to the woman encountered in the apartment 

corridor.  Juggernaut just moved into a nice apartment on east side of 

Cleveland in an area walking distance to a small Catholic University. 

“I am Sister Christina; I live next to your unit, I work at the

restaurants here in the United States  do not have that special aroma I

pieces of warm Idli in shallow porcelain dish. “Yes, I can taste the 

characteristic aroma of South Indian ‘Sambar' now,” Sister Christina 

looked pleasantly surprised. 

“Well, then the Angels came to bless ‘Sambar' with the 

characteristic aroma you were longing to taste,” Juggernaut looked 


“How the Angels bless Sambar?” Sister Christina looked puzzled.
