His Ascent

It was a shimmering sky,

She was sparklingly shy…

The shining stars were glistening,

The marveling moon was listening….

She was standing in the patient patio,

She was waiting for her romantic Romeo….

She sang a song of longing,

She sang a song of belonging…

She saw her love ascending the nearby bridge,

She was shocked and stunned to budge…

She saw him leaving the country,

She was treated by him like sundry…

She was now a lone ranger,

The familiar road was now a stranger…

His Ascent

The Providence of Co-incidence.

Co-incidence seems like a divine Providence,

It’s ingenuity can be bewildering,

It’s occurrence can be stunning…..

Co-incidence is often subjected to many critical assessments,

The event augments ample arguments…

A pleasant Co-incidence is welcomed with a smile,

An unpleasant co- incidence is deleted like an unwanted file…

Co-incidence is like a complementary gift,

Forget it or lift it….

The story of Co-incidence continues,

It moves through many rues…

Relationships of Dignity.

Many Civilizations have existed, evolved and even exited from the sands of time… But, for thousands of years, there are two relationships which have been there in any Civilization , community, culture,country, they are -motherhood and marriage.

Ideally, there are qualities like nurture, care, love, security, safety, support in motherhood and marriage. Both have stood the test of time. There are three other qualities, which make these relationships work. They are ‘ Communication, Trust and Dignity ‘.

A few verses:

Love without Dignity

Cannot last

For an Eternity….

Love without trust,

Will rust….

Love without Communication

Will be

Without any direction…..

The Emphatic Recitations

He wrote beautiful words,

She created wonderful worlds….

He wove fabrics of imagination,

She stitched attires of expression…

He wrote after undertaking research,

Her great ability to recite made the listeners do some soul search…

His work was like a dish,

Her work was like a garnishing of that dish…

They were a great team,

Their work was a flowing stream…

They won the hearts of the young and the old,

They still had many stories to be told…..

The duo had struck gold,

Their admirers also waited for their stories to unfold….

Grainy life

Life is like an assorted collection of grains,

It is full of soaks and strains…

Sometimes, life is nice,

Like steamy, hot rice….

Sometimes , life is full of fills and fulfils,

Like the protein rich lentils and nutritious falafels….

Sometimes, life is like a fantastic falooda,

It seems complex just like reading Paulo Coelho’s ‘ Brida ‘….

Sometimes, life is eggy,

Sometimes, life is edgy….

The Joy of Delivery

The project has delivery,

A bad work can increase misery…

A good work can spread joy,

It feels like having protein rich soy….

 

Many people feel an excitement

With the scissors’ movement

While opening a delivered parcel…

Till that time, they build their imaginative castle….

 

A timely delivery

Keeps the rivalry

At Bay….

A hospital has a delivery room,

It seems to be a divine room…

A new life is born in these places,

The baby sees so many faces….

The joy of delivery exists in different forms,

Certain processes and norms

Have to be followed,

The efforts are ploughed,

The seeds are sowed,

With a productive  harvest,

There is joy and jest……

Long live the delivery,

Long live the mystery and every…

Thing of delivery!!!

Delivery

Some Cooking Advice

Food is a basic need. Food , if cooked well can provide happiness to the eater as well as the cook. I have grown up in a home, where my mother and grandmothers were excellent cooks. They used to make and serve food , not only to the family members , but also to guests with lots of hospitality.

Here are some thoughts about cooking. Some are my mother’s thoughts , some are my observations :

1) A dish ( except a sweet dish and some exceptions ) , should have all the tastes in it, without making any one taste as an overpowering taste.

A dish should be a balance of sweet, sour, salty, spicy…

Similarly, a sweet dish shouldn’t be excessively sweet.

2) The more variety, a person cooks everyday, the better it is for the health and taste buds of the family members. Similarly, make different recipes of the same core food item. That will break the monotony.

3) Be observant. When you are invited to someone’s place , observe the ingredients , which are there in the making of a dish, if you like it, try it at home.

4) Learn a recipe from an expert of that recipe. Nowadays, YouTube, blogs also offer many variants of a particular dish’s recipe.

5) Be open to an honest feedback. There is always a scope for improvement.

6) Be ready to use substitutes in cooking, be ready to learn dishes of different cuisines ,regions and cultures. By doing this, we will be increasing our knowledge of different dishes.

7) Garnishing, dressing, serving are important processes in food making. They make the food presentable.

8) Aromas are important too.

9) Storage of food , it’s ingredients is vital too. Be well versed with that.

10) Planning and preparation are tools of a well managed kitchen.

11) Cooking, food and nutrition are vast bodies of knowledge. They are Art, Science and Management. Be ready to learn…

Happy cooking and eating !
