It's High Time to Be A Responsible Party Animal..

As the jingle bells are all set to greet us, we all are moving ahead to enjoy our year end celebrations. Beautifully decorated Santa has started attracting selfie taking crowed and most of us have planned their year end parties or perhaps would be ready to fix our presence at a club, disco, garden or such other place.
At one hand rich people are booking their presence at beaches, cruise and resorts others have plans visit to a country club, amusement park or zoo with their family and kids. Remarkable new year Eve celebration is also being planned by residential societies where all the residents enjoy in pocket friendly manner. All in all, we all love partying at the 31st Eve. But do we really have the civilized sense of partying is a big question here.
Unfortunately, most of us don't even have the etiquettes of being part of a celebration, party or such an event. This is not because i say this but because most environmentalists and social welfare activists are raising concerns about it  People love to do parties but they are hardly concerned about how harsh they hit on mother nature. One of the most preferred party destinations, Goa, is lying on serious environment issues that affects its natural beauty and balanced biodiversity after every new year celebration at its marvelous beaches. Untill a decade ago, new year Eve was cautioned for youngsters safety issues but thanks to development now it is being looked for the environment deterioration that people make on the name of celebrations.
People who can afford to celebrate the special occasion at beaches and cruise hardly know that they act like a garbage producer most of which is not recycled in time or is simply not recyclable.
Sadly, people celebrating in pocket friendly manner at amusement parks and other public places are no better when it comes to behaving like a garbage producer specially for new year Eve. Wrappers of chips, cold drinks, muffins etc. are seen thrown anywhere. As and when the demographic criteria changes the waste being thrown anywhere changes into beer bottles, cigarettes and other boozing items.
Although most of these places are appointed with the cleaning staff responsible for clearing the trash, it is anyways collected at some place to affect the environment inversely. When beer and other wastes gets mixed with sea water, the sea creatures suffer and when dumped on earth, our soil has to bear the loss.
To be frank, we are eventually degrading the nature for the coming years of our lives and for our coming generations on the name of parting.
It is high time to learn the right parting etiquettes. Before planning a party, let's first take the pledge to cause minimum loss to our environment. At residential societies, amusement parks and gardens, we should not use any non-biodegradable item like plastic cups etc. The items bought for the party time should be collected and served in paper packaging instead of plastic packaging, as far as possible. All party persons should be careful about collection of the after party waste. And above all, if we all take time to plant small saplings anywhere possible, this would become the true reason to cherish. 
Wish you a celebration that lasts forever without any harm for anyone anywhere on earth !!

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
