It is not just a stone 0

I picked up this stone from the Nandini River, 30 years ago! Yes you heard it right, it’s the same year when my son was born. Me and my mom were walking along the shore to get a ‘perfect’ stone to make ginger, garlic, chilli pastes. You know back then we didn’t have so many machines or packed ingredients. I’m using it since then and it is an integral part of my kitchen. May be the emotional attachment or it is natural, food tastes better when I use it. One more thing it wasn’t in this shape back then! Today my children generation may not like this but I’ll definitely pass this precious stone to them. I forgot to mention, I used the same stone to crush pepper when my children were having cold, when my husband wanted a hot pepper soup in winters. I never keep it on the ground It is very precious to me.
