It is customary for people to say “oh you have a promotion..where is the treat”. What we mean is
a) please treat me in a hotel or b) give me a sugar high
Long long ago sugar was difficult to get and maybe even 100 years ago all of us may not have had enough to eat. People had low incomes and ‘treats’ were considered a rarity.
Today you can order sweets at the drop of a hat, food is available in plenty.
So the treat need not be food. And it should surely not be sugar.
When we go for a wedding or any other occassion we see a “no gifts please” – so we decide to buy flowers. Makes no sense at all. The flowers get wasted.
So let us decide to change things. No more sugar sweets. If you want sweets go to jaggery. Stay away from sugar.
No gifts. The only gift you should give are books. Maybe a Ramayana or a Mahabharata or any other book of interest to the common man.
Sounds good? what say?
