Indian Food

My American friend loves Indian food. She go crazy at its very thought. While eating the indian food she feels the garam masala, the chilli, fennel, cumin and all the flavors and relishs every bit of it. So much so she has all these masalas at home and spices up her food. When I came to this country, I was amazed by the way people love indian food. I have seen people talk so much about our Indian cuisine and its flavor. I had come across one other American who loves Masala Dosa and Briyani. T
hough our cooking may be elaborate the flavor,aroma,taste and appreciation it brings, I think its worth the effort.

Hmmm....what does it mean?

After childbirth, i had taken a long break of 15 mths to get back to work. The reason being I wanted to be with my baby for atleast a year before i get back to work, even now i feel guilty for leaving her at home but complusions of life made me to go to work.

Today I got a mail from one of my friends who just found out that i started to work saying "Very nice to hear that u r keeping urself busy..

"What on earth does that mean? Does it mean I was lazing around at home not doing anything? Or is it that only a working person is busy?
The attitude of the people never change,a Stay at Home mom is always looked down on.

This morning I was waiting at the bus stop, and as it happens in our MTC bus stops, a youth was gladly Kadala varuthufying with a sweet looking swedish girl. He was asking her all sorts of questions, and finally ended up saying "In case you need a ride let me know, I would get my car on the days i work late, I can drop you off." The bus arrived and he very politely asked her if he can be seated next to her and continued blah blah.....I was indeed amazed, never thought it would happen here too, then i realised guys are guys whereever they are and Kadala podurathu is a universal concept.

Tamil Movie after long time- HOWAZZAT- REFRESHING!!

After a couple of moves, relocation, new job, child care etc, it had been a very long time I had seen a Tamil movie. Since either we stayed far from the video shop or there were only Hindi movies in the shops nearby. This weekend, I found a shop with a limited number of Tamil movies, got one for the weekend. How my god, how refreshing it was to see a tamil movie after a long period of over 7 mths, I felt my stress just eased out. My daughter 15 mths old , hardly sits in a place a minute, but I was amazed to see that, when the tamil movie started she just sat and watched it with the rest of the fly for more than 1-1/2 hrs. Usually she never bothers to see the TV, she goes about her business. I think may be she was amazed to see the same language we talk at home on TV or may be she was also enjoying "SURYA MAMA". Anyway all said, she has taken after me !!!
