Elstin Raj is certain that if he asks his girlfriend what she wants, she will say "Enakku edhathu pandam venum [I want some snacks]." He says food is their common love, and perhaps her first love.
"Whenever we used to meet in Nagercoil, I would get a pack or two of banana chips, and we would munch on them over tea. Things started to change once she moved to Chennai for work.
We could no longer meet frequently, and we took our tea time to our daily video calls. The same tea and banana chips, from a distance.
Last year, this distance got the better of us, and all our conversations seemed to end in arguments. I wanted to tell her I was sorry, and that I was thinking of her, and I knew if there was one thing that could put her in a good mood, it was snacks.
I was looking for a way to get Nagercoil-style banana chips delivered to her in Chennai, as a way for us to reminisce, and Enchipsu came to the rescue.
I ordered a combo pack from them, and asked them to include an apology note. It may be a small gesture, but her delight at receiving the package was all that I needed! My apologies were accepted, no doubt.
