Diwali Party Essentials

Shankarpali with an African Twist The festival of lights aka Diwali, is soon going to shine on us, and bring in all the happy brightness and prosperity (fingers crossed!). And it’s only fair that we look pretty, bring on our A game, and be the […]

Bengali Fish and Chips

Bengali Fish and Chips

This one is right from the heart. Take any Bengali from across the globe and the one thing we are most excited about is Durga Pujo. It doesn’t matter if it is not celebrated in the part of the world we live in, but, we […]

Shroooommmmm

Shroooommmmm

And once again, I am bringing to you my early life experiences and well, twisting it. It might make you think I had a fairly adventurous childhood; but the truth is, I had a traditional childhood that made me the way I am, and fortunately, […]

Munchkin – Pumpkin

Munchkin – Pumpkin

PUMPKIN, well in favour of the vegetable, it does have the word ‘kin’ in it. But all my life (even now) it was quite the opposite of kin. It was, is and I think will always be one of those vegetables that most people in […]

Cooking during summers is always a catch 22 situation. Why? Well, allow me to elaborate on my statement. First of all, because it’s the holiday season, you can’t but avoid cooking. I mean come on, holidays do have the tendency to bring out the master […]

Shadow’s Holiday

Shadow’s Holiday

For as long as I can remember, my holidays were studded with those which were strictly and mandatorily pet friendly. Because we have always had pets, and we never went on holidays leaving the babies for someone else to take care of. They have always […]

We’ve turned 1!

We’ve turned 1!

Happy birthday to us! Well we have turned 1, and that is one mean achievement. Why you ask? Well, ask my husband, because he has been at the receiving end of it all! Nevertheless, I am not going to bore you with the OH MY […]
