Ten Tales by Surbhi Mahobia - A Review

Ten Tales by Surabhi Mahobia - Vibhu & Me
Have you come across a book for which you wanted to read beyond the last chapter? "Ten Tales" from Surbhi Mahobia is one such book.  "Ten Tales" is a compilation of ten short stories for children aged 8 years and above. These stories are a mix of magic, mystery, thrill, suspense, happiness, and excitement. Although the book blurb says that it is a book for children, I feel it is a must-read for adults as well.

Every story of this book is beautifully crafted. One after other, when I was reading the stories, I was getting heartfelt. Those were cute yet deeply touching. Surabhi has done a great job with her book. I could not find anything that is missing from this book. Stories are exciting. They keep the reader hooked. Although the book has a few stories that have realities of this world, yet their fictional end is soothing. It leaves you with a thought placed in your mind. The book is perfectly designed. Everything comes well aligned. It is a pleasing read through cell phone screen as well. There is no extra scrolling or spacing.

My favorite story is "Deep Blue Sea". This is a story of a boy Danny whose favorite color is blue. He loves everything in blue despite blue is often associated with pain & boredom. Feeling blue, Monday blues, you get it, right!! However, the story is so beautifully woven that you don't expect such end of the story.

The book is short yet makes its place in your reading list. As I already said, nothing is missing in the book. All I wished for more such stories in the book. This is perfect bedtime story book for kids that you can keep in your phone and can recite them one every other night. At least this is my plan for coming days.

Don't think twice and download the book "Ten Tales" from Blogchatter platform : https://www.theblogchatter.com/download/ten-tales-surbhi-mahobia/

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…

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…

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…
