|Dough being kneaded at a restaurant (Penstar)|
Anyways, while coming back, we felt like eating something. It was almost lunchtime. So, we stopped at a nearby restaurant. Having some ordered for some noodles, we had our tea.
After that quick lunch, I dutifully returned to the office. One hour passed. Nothing happened. After another half an hour, my head started whirling and nausea feeling overcame me. I had to quickly rush to the bathroom. And when I told my one of my colleagues about my illness, he suddenly asked me if I have eaten at a restaurant. When I said yes, he wanted to know which restaurant exactly. I named the location for I forgot the exact name of the restaurant. He understood which place I meant. And then he went on to narrate how his entire family got sick having eaten some beef curry from the same place.
I didn’t believe him, but just for curiosity’s sake I called my wife to confirm if she didn’t vomit. She actually vomited too. And I called to see if my brother was feeling okay. He was also down with headache and nausea.
I realized it was not a rare incident, I decided. And my colleague and I decided to do something – call BAFRA officials so that they would do something.
We called one number. We were told it was a different section and we were given a different number. But the man at the other end was still asking our names and telephone numbers. We simply hung up.
I am happy now that we have reported the incident and hope the concerned authority would do something so that our people do not fall in the same trap.
