Weekend 95 -At home

Today is 16th May 2020 and here is what it looks like outside my window


Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while  ~Kin Hubbard


Being a Saturday we decided to stay home until afternoon and the result is not bad at all.

Cakes are like books, there are new ones you like to read and old ones you want to reread ~ Ellen Rose

Banana Bread

Food cannot take care of spiritual, psychological and emotional problems, but the feeling of being loved and cared for, the actual comfort of the beauty and flavour of food, the increase of blood sugar and physical well-being, help one to go on during the next hours better equipped to meet the problems. ~                                               Edith Schaeffer (The Hidden Art of Homemaking)

Moongdal ki kachori

Kachori is a spicy snack, originating from the Indian subcontinent, and common in places with Indian diaspora and other South Asian diaspora. Alternative names for the snack include kachauri, kachodi and katchuri. Kachoris were popular in old Indore, even before samosas gained popularity after the partition of India.


Getting back after a break is difficult!

Four weeks of vacation or change in location is over. We needed to be away and work on  necessary matters in the other part of the world. I was not on wordpress due to limited internet access. Slowly but steadily will visit your blogs and answer the comments on my posts. Thanks for supporting me.

Here are some images from my stay in India.

There is no such thing as wrong side.

It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly ~ Bertrand Russell

Inspired by Becca’s Nurturing Thursday theme.



सावरकर, पुलं आणि या सारखे अनेकांना मरण नाही!

स्वतःच्या वीस वर्षाच्या मुलाला सबंध दिवस अभ्यासाच्या टेबलाजवळ पाहून जे कोणत्या ही सामान्य आईला वाटेल अगदी तसेच मला वाटते. ना राहून शेवटी मी चाचपडत प्रश्न विचारला, उद्या परीक्षा आहे का?
उत्तर आले “नाही”.
अभ्यास आहे, प्री-Ph.D. कोर्सेसचे सबमिशन आहेत आणि पुढच्या वीकएंडला एक कॉन्फरन्स आहे त्याचे प्रेझेन्टेशन तयार करायचे आहे.
काय ना, “क्षण तो क्षणांत गेला” असे वहायला नको.
आता मात्र मी बोटें तोंडात टाकायची बाकी होते! मी प्रश्न टाकायच्या आधीच म्हणाला, तुला आठवत नाही का, अगं “शत जन्म शोधिताना” मध्ये आहे.
मी सावरकरांना मनातल्या मनात धन्यवाद दिले.

सावरकर, पुलं आणि या सारखे अनेक भौतिक रित्या हयात नसले तरी ते आपल्यातच आहेत. वेगवेगळ्या प्रसंगी त्यांची आठवण निघत राहते आणि मग जाणवते की या थोर माणसांना मरण नाहीं हेच खरे!

tip: मला तो अभ्यास करतोय याचे नवल वाटत नसून त्याला “शत जन्म शोधिताना” आणि पर्यायाने सावरकर लक्षात आहेत याचे कौतुक वाटते!

Sunday share!

Writing means sharing. It’s part of the human condition to want to share things – thoughts, ideas, opinions.
