Priya Iyer said...

hey, welcome to my blog and thanks for the comment. i dont know why there are only 14 idlis a plate, but i know for sure that i m blogrolling you. :)

PREETI said...

I'm gonna agree with busywriter cuz it makes sense (also cuz i couldnt think of anythin else)

Oru dozen vangina rendu free :D

Gayatri said...

cos 14 is Saravana Bhavan's lucky number!

the victorious.. said...

Nalla kelvi. Probably that is the number of moulds in the idli plate. :D

Ponnarasi Kothandaraman said...

Hahaha! Nice questn and wts ur view abt it? :>

Arun Sundar said...

Busy-writer,
lol...Need free in everthing, huh?!!

Priya Iyer,
Hmmm...thanks.

Preeti,
Appo ordinary idli'la onne vaangina onnu free'a??!

Gayatri,
Saravana Bhavana relies on luck on the number of idli's they make. Cool!

the victorious,
Agreed. The next question would be why are there only 14 moulds in the plate ;)

Ponnarasi,
Am still thinking.

♥bμşγ-ŵŗϊŧēŕ♥ said...

lol..come on, we're talking bout a DOZEN "idlis"...you'd obviously expect somethin free for sumthin like dat! ;) :P

PREETI said...

YES! Adula u c, 3 is an odd number...and 1 also is not nice...so, oru pair aa irukunam nu 2...hehe...dumb i knw :-/

watched yaaradi nee mohini nite show and im brain dead now....blame it on tat! :D

Arun Sundar said...

Busy writer,
Yaa. Getting DOZEN of such idlis is a BIG business for the restaurant. One wud expect something for free. For wat else do u apply this 'free' logic? :)

Preeti,
U must be having similar explanation why they give 2 chapathis, one dosa or 2 pooris!

♥bμşγ-ŵŗϊŧēŕ♥ said...

@arun
hmm, lets see! unfortunately, there isn't the "free" system in the education system. you study soo much, come on, tech, you ought to get 'something' free for all the effort and am not even bein materialistic here, am makin the 'something'..marks.
;) :P

The Victorious.. said...

aamaa ipppadiye pona why is the idli not square shaped, why is dosa flat, why is bonda a bonda and not a medhu vadai nu list poittaee irukum...

14 idlis kudutha kelvi kaeka koodadhu.. appadiye saapdanum..(pazhamozhi sonna anubavikkanum, aaraya koodadhu, adhu maadhiri)

PREETI said...

vendam...enna romba yosika vekade...! im not offering any more of my 'privileged' explanationz! :D

The Maverick Blog said...

That idly thattu has 14 holes... So oru thattu idlya appdiye they kottufy in one plate and serve it with sambaar.... Avalo dhan..

vidhya said...

Have you ever tried counting the 14-idlis while eating... Me and friend did once and there was only 10 idlis in that saravana bhavan people emathified us :P

Arun Sundar said...

Busy writer,
Applying u'r 14-idli logic, if you study and clear maths, physics and Chemistry you would want to clear biology without studying. Hmmm...sounds like a good deal :)

victorious,
Neenga sollitteenga'la!

Preeti,
Adhula paaru...............seri, vendaam..nee romba yosikka aaramichuduva.

Maverick,
14 holes? adhu enna golf course'a? lol...

Vidhya,
You should have complained to the cops and filed an FIR.

musicpaithiyam said...

Kuzhambi said...

14 is also teacher's dozen. Whoever invented the 14 idli thought about being a leader / inventor lol
