    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    19th Feb 2002, a day I will cherish forever. A day that brought immense joy in my life. A day I was waiting for for so many months. I received from www.poetry.com, an anthology "Across the abyss" that contains 301 pages of delightful poetry written by amateur poets, mine was a part of it! I celebrated this day by serving this halwa to my parents and brother. They loved it, it's a rich sweet very popular in winter months and served at very special occasions! Try it, you will love it, GUARANTEED!
