Give In To Cravings At Place Of Origin

Craving(noun) : A powerful desire for something, yearning, urge, hunger, addiction etc…

If you are an Indian you must be fully aware of what craving is; after all at least half the nation can’t do without ‘subah wali kadak chai‘. Yes, we crave for something simple as tea….well, most people do. I have the cravings for coffee twice a day at least.

My day doesn’t begin unless there is a hot cup of coffee in my hands and husband dear doesn’t open his eyes even unless I brew up a hot chai for him. We end up stocking up both beverages at home.

On a recent trip to United States, I tasted Rich Hazelnut Cream coffee and honestly I fell in love with it. I brought one pack to savour back at home. But the other day I realised, that the coffee packet is almost finished. Now I live in a small town where I do get good coffee but alas there is no hazelnut flavour available.

PLACE-OF-ORIGIN-LOGO1My craving for the flavour made me search the internet. I couldn’t believe I hit upon a jackpot of a site, the Place of Origin. It was like I found Aladdin’s chirag, the magic lamp and the moment I clicked, a world of food was spread in front of me….the genie from the lamp granted my wish ‘coz there in the staples section was the flavour I was yearning for and not only that, there were so many varieties of coffee. I never imagined I could find all kind of health foods, snacks, confectionery items like cakes, biscuits and savoury namkeens at one place. They even have mangoes…can you imagine and everything gets delivered at your doorstep…just add it to your wish list and voila! soon the stuff is there to titillate your taste-buds.

I found something for my husband too and I know exactly what to gift him as a surprise…you guessed it right….An entire range of teas especially green tea, festive blends, oolong, white tea, kahwa, chamomile teaYou are spoiled for choices really!!

So give in to your cravings, go try the Place of Origin.


About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....
