This is why I rate NickYanka Wedding higher than Other Celebrity Knot Tying events of the season

Two days back, one morning, on a social chat I got someone questioning why the Prime Minister of the country has to attend wedding reception of Bollywood celebs. I gently replied...'because it's make in India !!'

The making merry of most Bollywood celebs has decorated the 2017 calendar with the high profile wedding bells making this year highly eventful for these celebrities as well as for their fans.

Among the coverage showing how extraordinarily radiant these wedding were, I noticed one thing in them common to the common weddings. Despite being high profile celebrity events,  these wedding vovs have collected similar comments. Similar to a common Indian wedding, these celebrity weddings were also compared like the reception of Sharmji's daughter was better than Mishra Ji's daughter. Ironically, the media coverage was showing whose lehenga was more exclusive, whose wedding ring was more expensive and whose reception was more happening. Though many celebrities ensured high security for their wedding, they could not be saved from such common wedding trolls. So, it seemed like a Lajpatnagar wedding where people gossip about who spent how much and whose uncle escaped the function.

There are jokes being made on these extravagant events mocking the postures, dresses or even tweets of these celebrities. People are mocking how Khilji weds Padmawati. Not just this, the Priyanka and Nick Jones' wedding has faced notable trolling on social media. Previously, a few teasing comments were made to Virat Anuska wedding too.

 Wedding in our society is a lifetime event and all couples have there most cherished dreams to fulfill at their wedding event. Hence, all these events are equally fabulous and there should be no comparison. Still there is one thing that makes me rate the NickYanka wedding one star above other hype seeking events of this season. The reason being it was celebrated in our own country.

As PCJones has remained miss world representing our country, I am glad she chose a destination in our beautiful country for the most important event of her life. Although Priyanka is tying her knot with a man not-made-in-India, she has at-least promoted make-in-India. The ex-miss world not just retained her faith and love for the land she is born in, she ensured her husband also finds it incredible India.

Not just emotionally, the NickYanka wedding can be rated higher for being economically good for our country. The expenditure made on her wedding has increased the business and income of an Indian palace, the Jodhpur's royal Umaid Bhawan Palace, where many Indians work and in all the event many Indians got to show their skills.

My best wishes to all newly wedded couples and praises for their radiant fairy-tale wedding celebrated the way they desired. But a special with and appreciation to Mr. & Mrs. Nick Jones.

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…
