Doubles Man Cometh
Subba Rao
 
Here comes the Doubles man,
Its lunch time already?
 
Two Doubles please.
Hot pepper?
Little bit.
Weak stomach?
Yeah man.
 
Two more please for Ian
Where is Ian Borringer today?
He is busy in the lab,
 Ian lived on doubles
for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
When is going back to Switzerland?
He is going nowhere;
He is addicted to Doubles.
 
Doubles?
It is a lunch snack in Trinidad.
An East Indian culinary byproduct,
made from two pieces of deep fried small circular flat bread ‘Bara’
colored yellow with turmeric
slapped with Channa or Chickpeas curry in between
with a pat of Scotch Bonnet pepper sauce.
A complete meal.
 
Wait a minute
I figured it out its origin.
Yeah?
Bara is a miniature Puri
What?
Deep fried circular flat bread called Puri was invented in India,
A quintessential snack eaten with curry
for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
 
In Trinidad it is made like a small sandwich
To hold it with two fingers to shove it into mouth.
Two miniature yellow Puris with curry became Doubles in Trinidad.
You stole our invention shouted Juggernaut with mouthful of Doubles.
Boy, give us a break nah, Doubles is our own culinary invention in Trinidad, lamented the Doubles Man.
 
The Doubles man built a two-story house In Arima,
Sent his two sons to college,
Married off his daughter with a big dowry,
With money earned from selling Doubles on the University Campus.
That’s East Indian Entrepreneurship.
