Anil Bohil message about Narendra brought this incident to show how good a person he was.
1969 we were invited for a dinner by Mr Ramachandran a South Indian colleague at HAL. He mentioned he will be serving “Sambaar “. NA did not know South Indian dishes, having gone hunting for Zambar ( wild animal from cow family “ he was expecting a sumptuous meat dish. But Sambaar is a thick vegetable soup.
Almost to the end of the meal he asked where is meat of wild cow? very apologetic.
We had to explain that Mr Ramachandran is a Brahmin and vegetarian. He meant the Sambaar vegetable soup!
He smiled and we all had nice vegetarian meal!
