I don’t know how true this is for other cities — but Madras has an acute shortage of young adults who as students ate cream bun everyday. Braving the April sun, I walked almost an entire kilometer to find cheri gumbal at McRennet eating non cream bun type cakes.
There is a certain class about a well baked cream bun — with its not so smooth edges that gently overflow and yet are well contained within the bun. The cream having distinct railing on it is a mark of the finest from the lot.
I also notice, for some reason, inflation has a perverse impact on class equations. Things that are wonderful are forsaken to the masses who make messes.
