Besan Doodh: A Drink Worthy of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, Malala & Kailash | Global Table Adventure. One thought crossed my mind every time I took a sip of the Besan Doodh. The thought overwhelmed the bold cardamom and it distracted from the warm milk tinged with saffron. A small thing, really – a sentence, again and again, bringing tears to my eyes. “I didn’t clip her wings.” Malala Yousafzai. These are the words of Malala Yousafzai’s father. As of Friday, Malala is the world’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner and the first Pakistani winner.

Malala’s father was the first person to write a girl’s name on the family tree – a family tree that went back hundreds of years. Though a child herself, Malala is like a mother, speaking for those who have no voice. Catering to the smallest Kailash Satyarthi. And then there’s Kailash Satyarthi – the Indian man who shares the Nobel Peace Prize with Malala. Kailash has spent every moment since the 80’s working against child labor and oppression in India and throughout the world. This is family. Family encompasses the entire planet.

In addition to all this, my birthday is in the middle of December – and the day after my birthday is the teenager’s birthday. So give yourself a gift sometime in the next few weeks and make this.
