DKP was always extremely accomodative with food. One of her favourite food was 'idli' with 'cocunut chutney'. She generally never avoided chilled food or took special care to preserve her voice. She never said no to ice-creams or ice water. A simple, humble and noble life that she led, she would sing for the vendor woman at her doorstep with the same sincerity and dedication that she would sing with for an august audience.
