And the houseboats are made of naan?

When I was a child, a tiny tiny tot, I thought that the Dal Lake had dal in it. It later turned out not to be the case, but had that been true, I suspect young Arzan Sam Wadia would have headed over to Srinagar for a meal or two. After all, he does seem miffed about "The Rising Cost of Dal in NYC."

Update: km writes in:
The daal situation here is really grave. So bad that "Ghar ki daal murgi barabar" is the first thing that comes to mind when I look at caviar-priced daal.

Needless to say, hopelessly amateur economists like me are watching the effect all this has on Indian buffet lunches with bated breath.
Hmm. And do you know what kind of lentils dead people like to eat?

Dal Ghost.
