The Best Remedy for a Broken Heart

Be it a broken heart or a tired soul, travel is the best cure for all. Take it from someone like me who has travelled 19 countries and 3 continents so far. It always works! Go buy that ticket NOW! ??  

Chores

I was about to make a “to do” list for today. I have so much to do for my websites, magazines, household chores and so on…. I thought of doing the chores first so that I can focus on my real work (read: websites, magazines) more. Then this realization struck hard. The first to do in the chores list was...

Religious Guilt or OCD

Every day is different and that’s how it should be, at least I think so. That way we will always be excited to live every new day anticipating the new! But in reality, this is not the case and we human beings are responsible for that. In our quest to live a safe and organised life, we make routines for...

Veppilaikkatti a.k.a. South Indian Behuwa

Today I made Veppilaikkatti. It’s a South Indian savoury side dish, somewhat similar to behuwa (Assamese dish). But it has a hot and tangy taste to it. It goes well with curd rice or rice dal. I made it without the red chilli on request. Contact me for the recipe. The basic ingredient of this dish is lemon/lime leaves.

Baandhon

Finally I managed go and watch the much-hyped (because it was released in PVRs and outside Assam) Assamese movie Baandhon by Jahnu Barua. Thanks to my brother +Hiranya Deka! Here is what I felt about the movie: Pros: The first concept of the love and hate relationship between the old couple was refreshing.  Acting by Bishnu Kharghoria, Bina Patangia, Jatin Bora, Zerifa...
