Jodhpur's Omelette Man

March 7, 2009

Text: Geetanjali Krishna

There's something rather allegorical about people who do just one small thing all their lives, but do it better than anyone else.

Somehow, I see more of such people in small towns than I do in cities, where perhaps people want to hedge their bets by having their fingers in many pies.

But when I was in Jodhpur last week, I chanced upon someone like this. A man who has made eggs and nothing else since the 1970s.

He's known quite simply as the Omelette Man.

How can anyone, thought I when I first read about him, make a living out of selling only omelettes? That was, of course, before I saw the Omelette Man's shop (obviously called the Omelette Shop).
