    We  had  snow  twice  already.  It  didn’t  stay  though.  The  garden  is  now  full  of  yellow  leaves  some  naked  branches,  an  errant  flower  in  a  corner  in  between  a  bunch  of  dead  stems.  The  raspberry  patch  is  a  different  story  altogether.  These  autumn  raspberries  are  flourishing  everyday  like  rebels. The  fruit  heavy  branches

  ‘Did  you  notice  the  leaves  turning  yellow?”  commented  J,  my  colleague  at  work.  That  was  middle  of  August.  “You  are  not  saying  what  you  are  saying,  are  you?’  I  retorted.  I  strengthened  my  argument  by  putting  forward  the  other  causes  of  leaves  turning  yellow,  for  example  drought.  Who  was  I  kidding  though.  I  knew

  What  shake?  I  know  your  thoughts,  exactly.  Chickoo,  Sapota.  Nope,  never  heard  that  before.  Well,  I  don’t  blame  you.  It  grows  only  in  tropical  climates  like  India,  Thailand,  Vietnam,  Southern  Mexico,  Central  America.  It  has  been  cultivated  in  Florida  in  the  US. I  was  in  the  city  recently.  The  food  blogger  inside  me  always

  I  am  a  sucker  when  it  comes  to  tag  lines  like  ‘Fresh,  Easy,  No-cook  meals’,  ‘No  bake  summer  fruit  tarts’  or,  ‘Machine  not  needed  ice cream’.  Baking  is  not  exactly  my  forte. I  have  been  looking  for  a  tart  recipe  without  eggs,  fit  for  a  beginner  ‘tart  maker’  like  me.  The  August  cover  of

  A  short  drive  from  the  busy  city  of  Rome, felt  like  a  long  step  back  in  time.  The  beautiful  medieval  village  of  Mazzano  Romano  is  home  to  Chef  Fabio  Bongianni.  Halfway  in  Law  school,  he  realized  his  true  calling  in  life  was  food,  not  felons.  A  change  of  course  and  training  in  Paris  later,

  “Botsorer  Aaborjona,  dur  hoye  jak,  Esho  esho”.  Let  go  of  the  clutter  of  the  yester  year,  welcome  the  new  year.  Thus  sang  our  poet  Tagore,  the  Nobel  laureate.  Leave  behind  all  the  disappointments  and  negativity,  let  those  tears  dry  out,  let  us  welcome  the  first  month of  the  new  year  like  a  breath  of

  I  once  read   somewhere  that  the  passenger  inside  the  plane  looking   out of  the window  as  it  is  taking off,  keeps  thinking  about  the  place  she/he  is  leaving,  while  the  child  playing  below  looks  at  the  plane  taking  off  and  dreams about  the  far  off  land. As  I  look  out  at  the

  Where  would  we  be  without  the  Sun?  Take  a  moment  and  think  about  it.  Wouldn’t  it  be  safe  to  say  that  our  whole  existence  would  be  at  stake?  Our  ancestors  realized  pretty  early  on  that  Sun  is  the  most  important  of  all  the  cosmic  bodies.  Hence  every  Sun  centric  event  became  important  spiritual  and

  A  new  year,  new  beginning.  The  thirty  below  zero  Celsius  temperatures  and  a  couple  feet  of  snow  outside  doesn’t  let  me  believe  that  there  is  a  ‘new’  anything.   We  are  in  the  middle  of  a  long  winter.  How  can  the  change  of  a  calendar  page  mean  the  beginning  of  everything  new.  January  could
