Hajmola story

Before I left Dhaka this time my cousin, Rafid, gave me 3 bottles of Hajmola. I tasted Hajmola long ago, years back. I didn't like it much but didn't dislike it as well. Today when I came to office I took one bottle with me for my colleagues. In the afternoon I offered them. They were so suspicious to see pill-like stuff with weird color and spicy smell. Aila and Ville tasted it, Peter took one but didn't dare to taste, actually he was waiting to see others' reaction. Just after putting it in mouth Aila said it has weird taste and she swallowed it right away. I said they have to chew it anyway. So Ville put his tablet inside his mouth and started to chew. He started to give a strange look. He said it's aweful but didn't gave up, continued chewing. After a while he said it tastes hot now and he became red but somehow he finished it. Seeing all these Peter didn't taste it at all. He took it home and wanted his wife to taste it :P I am eager to hear his wife's reaction. Well she is an Indonesian, so she may not react like a Finn. It seems that Finns don't like this taste at all.

I sent the Dabur website link to Ville to see what are the ingredients. What we saw there is this

Main ingredients
Kalimirch, Zeera, Saunth,Nimbu saar

Other ingredients

Pippali, Samudra Lavan, Sarkara, Krishnalavana, Navsadar

which didn't make things clear. I don't know why they didn't write the name of the ingredients in English :-S Ville was asking me if I know those ingredients. Unfortunately I know only the first two items they mentioned. All others are also unknown to me. Peter was laughing and was telling what if we start giving other people this pain :P FYI, there is a big high table in our team space on which we put different kinds of chocolates, candy, sticky note papers, pen, pencils and so on. Anybody can take things from there, even from outside the team. He suggested to put the hajmola in one bowl just beside other candies, so that people will taste it as well and we will laugh at him/her when we see his/her funny face :D Suddenly all team members agreed and we just put the hajmola in one of the white bowls and placed it on the table. I removed all other craps, i.e., papers, pens etc., from the table so that people wont be distracted :P We are waiting to see the first victim :P
