#BlogchatterA2Z Theme Reveal - It Is All About Spices

When I started writing in 2015, my son was 14 months old. He only was my inspiration to start writing. I used to write my own parenting experiences and everyday problems. In many of blogs, I shared my wisdom as a working mother. I also gave importance to share how my husband supported me all through being always there for me. I never imagined that one day I would have my own blog and I would expand my horizons of writing. In 2017, I got my own blogging space with the name "Vibhu & Me". Vibhu is my son's name and he would always remain the biggest inspiration for my posts.

Now I write in diverse subjects. Parenting is, of course, my best-loved genre because I have practical insight there (I am a mother of a naughty boy). However, I love to write about Indian art, culture, cuisines, folklore, and mythology. Because this way I research a lot and reading about India and Indian culture always make me spirited. I also feel confident in expressing my views on relationships and social issues. And a few of my blog posts belong to these two categories.

Stepping one more feat, this year I am taking part in #BlogchatterA2Z. Although the contest is not new for me. Last year also I read so many posts those were part of #AtoZChallenge. However, I got late in getting myself registered and when this year's #BlogchatterA2Z was announced, without any delay I registered myself. I really like to take this challenge. And as today is the theme reveal, I would really like to say it aloud.  

No, I am not going to give relationship mantras. Rather, my theme is to let everyone know about the spices available in India. It is hard to imagine cooking without spices in our country. Isn't it? Spices are known as one of the most remarkable ingredients of the Indian cuisine all around the world. They are natural flavoring elements that not only gives our food that special taste, but also enrich our food with medicinal properties. Remeber having a ginger tea for all your cold- cough troubles?

In my journey of #BlogchatterA2Z, every day I would talk about spices and try to list their benefits in different forms. I admit not all spices I have used in my cooking. But I know many because my father's maternal grandfather was a Vaidya. And in Ayurveda, spices are heavily used for curative and therapeutic benefits. I have seen Chavanprash getting made in my house and that too with 100 different ingredients. So, starting from A to Z, I would pick one (or more) spice and will let you know about it in brief. Some of the common ones you already know. But, a few would be completely new names for you. 

So, be with me during #BlogchatterA2Z. I am sure you would love it.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.
