Definition

In India, we take three things very seriously.

First, we love our mothers. We have all internalized the idea that above mother there is no other. Even our favorite Feku Mr. Namo in a recent speech appealed to the mother india argument.

Second, we love our sweets. Ordinary events lead to Muh meetha karo!

Third, we love Bollywood.

At the intersection of Bollywood, Mother and Sweets venn diagram is Gajar Ka Halwa! Made from carrots, it is typically served up by a long suffering grey haired mother, garbed in a crushed cotton sari, to her beloved prodigal son or beta who has returned from serving jail time or some arduous adventure!
Always bright orange in color and always served with love.

Usage

Mother: Beta, Maine tumhare liye gajar ka halwa banaya hai.”(Son, I have made gajar ka halwa for you.)

OR

Ganster 1: “Aaj mere paas gaadi hai, Bangla hai, Rupya hai. Tumhare paas kya hai?”
( Today, I have Cars and Bungalows and Money. What do you have?)

Ganster 2; “Mere paas Maa hain aur maa ke haath ka bana gajar ka halwa hai”.
( I have Mother on my side and the Carrot pudding she makes)
