A Tight Slap, All in Vain…

A Tight Slap, All in Vain…

Since June 16 2013, every newspaper, television channel, radio station or online news agency had their headlines set regarding the Uttarakand Himalayan Tsunami tragedy. It is to be appreciated and rewarded that the journalists meticulously covered every aspect of the disaster; yet as expected, the story culminated to a political fiasco and drama of Congress vs. BJP vote bank politics. The percentage of stories written or broadcasted in environmental angle was very small to even mention. Every time such a natural disaster happens, my sympathies not only goes to the affected people, but also the nature and mother earth. This time it was even more.

Shades of My Life :) Its 6:00 PM in the evening. As I wake up from a power nap, within few seconds suddenly both my mind and heart speaks a lot about food, cooking, eating, dining, serving etc. May be I had dreams about food. And Yes! My taste buds are all agitated and hyperactive. In reality, my taste buds never get satisfied. And every time I look at food they start jumping and craving, just like how small kids jump and dance when they see toys. It might be hilarious, but the truth remains. Cooking has been my one of the few hobbies, which I have always tried to pursue till this time (will always continue to do so :)). My mother, who is a Cook by her profession, has been the greatest inspiration to…

From time immemorial, “Marriages” are considered a lifetime occasion, when everything should be the best be it the venue, bridal attire, food or the ambience and even the cold winds of global slowdown don't seem to have touched celebration of the big day. In life we all want to do lots of things beside our actual professional career. But at times we are unable to do. You might be wondering why I am suddenly talking about this. Yes, I have a sudden craze to take up “WEDDING MANAGEMENT” as a career. At times, it seem hilarious to myself when I think about this, as I am currently doing my Masters in Journalism and also preparing for my Civil Services Exam. Still the wish remains :). I have always loved Indian…
