Time is a cycle (Kalchakra) that keeps getting back at you and makes you do things which you never thought you will ever do. For instance, as a child I never liked home-made curds and always sought the ones available in marts such as Amul curds, etc. Now tides have turned and I long for home made yogurts only. Vidhaata yeh kaisi hai vidambana..:P  As an adult, I found out that it is really easy to make them at home, goes with Indian tradition of making curds at home, kifayati and saves you a trip to grocery store especially on lazy nights when you want to give cooking a pass by having simple curd rice only to realize you are out of curds.
