I have a dear memory of my post office delivery worker from when I was a child. I lived in an apartment with my family, and my mother would always fry samosas for us before iftar time. Samosas were a specialty since we never had them during any other time of the year.
I remember that I had established a dear friendship with the post office man that every day I would wait for him to come after school by looking out my window to the mail boxes. He would be delighted to see me and I would indulge in his kindness by delivering him some homemade samosas. He loved them and thought they were very spicy. It is a fond memory of mine because he would always ask for some and he would tell me mother thank you from the door.
Iftar: an evening meal when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset in the month of Ramadan.
