My  Sour  Cherry  and  Plum  trees  are  laden  with  fruits.  It  is  so  exciting  to  see  the  flowers  cover  every  inch   of  the  tree  in  Spring.  The  small  green  stubs  come  next  which  then  swell  up  and  change   to  the  lovely  orange  and  red  colour. The  birds  wait  as  much  as  I  do  to  pluck

Who  can  forget  those   scorching  summer  afternoons  in  India?  The  heat  so  strong  that  it  is  not  safe  to  step  outside  at  all  for  a  few  hours  during  the  middle  of  the  day.  Only  way  to  cope  with  the  heat  is  to  have  these  coolers  and  a  siesta. The  commonest  thirst  quencher  is  probably  a

Is  there  any  better  way  to  welcome  Spring,  than  to  colour  yourself  with  the  colours  of  the  season? Just  take  a  moment  to  think.  The  long  grey  winter,  I’d  say  white  in  my  part of  the  world,  is  just  showing  signs  of  being  done  for  the  year. The  possibility  of  the  bare  feet  touching  the

It  has  been  snowing  steady  for  the  past  whole  week.  The  roads,  the  driveway,  the  branches  of  the  trees  are  full  of  the  white  stuff.   If  that  is  not  enough  the   weatherman  is  calling  for  30   more  centi  meters  tonight.  Slippery  roads,  poor  visibility,  shovelling  snow  off  of  the  driveway,  all  we  are  saying  now

There  are  some  foods  that  transport  me  to  another  time  instantly.  Pithey  is  one  such.  I  remember  my  mum  sitting  on  a  low  stool  in  the  kitchen  and  making  these  lovely  crepes  for  hours  together.  The  month  of  January  would   be  middle  of  winter  with  a  chill  in  the  air.  ‘Komor  ta  dhore  geche’,  she  would

There  is  no  denying  that  at  times  we all  look  for  the  fastest,  easiest,  no  fuss  recipe.  Be  it  a  dessert  or  a  main  course.  And  why  not?  Life  is  busy.  Work,  family,  kids  activities,  sometimes  elderly  parents,  community  commitments  I  could  go  on  and  on. Festivals  needs  sweets,  period.  The  more  decadent  the  better.
