Tasty (?) Doodhi!!

I had told her to get some pumpkin, nice, yellow pumkin… she got doodhi (bottle gourd)! Now, i have never really liked doodhi in any of its many preparations… …And so, it sat in the fridge for some time, waiting patiently for its turn to be cooked… Sunday evening, i was feeling creative and decided […]

The Master’s hand

A story… some sites claim that it’s fiction… i prefer to believe that it actually happened, if not with Paderewski, then some other great pianist :)… Wishing to encourage her young son’s progress on the piano, a mother took her boy to a Paderewski concert. After they were seated, the mother spotted a friend in […]

Misc. Stuff :)

Last night a husband and wife were sitting in the living room, talking about life… In-between, they talked about the idea of living or dying. He said to her: ‘Dear, never let me live in a vegetative state, totally dependent on machines and liquids from a bottle. If you see me in that state I […]

QnA – 18

Q: I really get very confused whenever I encounter a beggar as I do not understand the truth behind beggary. Some people say we must never extend monetary help to beggars as they are fake, and the real poor people who don’t have anything to eat do not come out and beg. While on the […]
