#BlogchatterA2Z Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Last year, during this time(around Holi I guess) I started noticing posts with an unknown hashtag #ATOZCHALLENGE. I was new on twitter and in blogging as well. Despite I tried my mind so much, I couldn't understand what this hashtag was trying to convey and represent. After a few days, many of my twitter friends, whom I follow, started sharing their blog posts with the same hashtag. I couldn't stop myself and I read many of them. Much more and not sure how many. Following the threads and hashtag, I came to know about Blogchatter community. This is a community of readers and writers. They help bloggers in their daily blogging issues and confusions. They motivate bloggers and support their progress. I needed to join the community but the fear of being a beginner didn't let me join it immediately. However, I kept on reading #ATOZCHALLENGE posts, shared by my twitter friends and soon I made my mind to join this blogger colony.

I reached Blogchatter website and found a post on #ATOZCHALLENGE. As I went through the post, I realized this could be a golden opportunity to establish myself as a blogger. Also, as a novice blogger in the wide garden of blogging, I would be able to learn, absorb and understand so many new things. I further went ahead for registering myself. However, the registration was closed by then. I closed the browser tab with little heavy feeling.

For those who still are unclear what #ATOZCHALLENGE is, read this :
If you remove all Sundays from the month of April, twenty-six days are left behind. A to Z Challenge asks bloggers to blog on each of these twenty-six days doing so while following the alphabet. For example Day 1- Letter A, Day 2- Letter B and so on.

This year, as I heard the very first call about #BlogchatterA2Z from Blogchatter, I found myself ready to join this exciting writing trek. Very soon I got myself registered and I am now one of those people who has decided the theme to follow in all those 26 posts of #BlogchatterA2Z. Following a theme gives readers a hint what is coming in the next series post. Also, the theme keeps the writer focused towards expressing views, thoughts, and ideas.

I am a mother of a small kid who is still trying to understand this world. As a mother, it's my first and foremost duty to help my son grow. I am also a software professional who is now in mid-managerial level. My team is my second kid that I am raising. With two kids (my son and my team), I feel blessed that I still get time to pursue my hobby of writing. And Blogchatter's #BlogchatterA2Z gives me an excellent scope of growing my another child, my blog. I had a successful year of blogging in 2017. I presently have good twitter following (not yet thousand but close to thousand). My posts are getting enough (as per me) views and I have my own small web space "http://www.vibhuandme.com/". I am really motivated to keep it going to the next level.

I expect, with #BlogchatterA2Z I would write, read and share a lot of meaningful content. I expect that people would also like to stop by my blog and would read and comment on my thoughts. I also expect that #BlogchatterA2Z would help me in making some space for my blog and for my writing. I wish to make new friends furthermore. I want to rise as a good writer, someone whom people like to read. And I have a lot of hope from #BlogchatterA2Z.

Slow and steady wins the race. I am slow, I know, but the good thing is I am steady as well. I am now part of #BlogchatterA2Z 2018.

" I am taking the Challenge of April with Blogchatter, are you? "

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…

K For Kalpasi - An Unknown Treasure

Good food is really a blessing, isn't it? And as I am talking about those who really go into making an average food to finger licking, I realized our spices undoubtedly do magic with the everyday food. Apart from the basic ingredients and a well-known, trusted recipe, a play of spices and herbs can really lift up a preparation. Every region in India uses spices to make their local food extraordinary. It is only a matter of spices that change the taste of the same Shambhar in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and in north India. We all make Chole but the game of spices do something to what we relish as famous Panjabi Chole.  It is all about the little nuances that go into creating a dish from ordinary to exceptional.

A handful of spices always remain in our kitchens and we know their unique flavors. However, there are a number of spices are little unheard-of. While these form an essential part of a few local innate cuisines in some part of India, the rest of India does not know much about them. O…
