Don’t forget you’re just a human!

Dear Mankind,

Hope you must have understood by now that how I am looking for my prey.You are just a human body and I want you to be mine. I really don’t care that how do you look. Nor I am bothered about your origin. So, I have spread all over the world.

You might’ve lots of money or just penniless but it’s not my concern. I don’t care if you are fair or dark skin. I am looking for a body and you seem to be the perfect one. Rest I don’t care. I have not chosen you based on anything.

And I want you to understand that your health and life is under your control. You came to this world alone and you have to leave alone. So, when you are blessed with a life than you should take care of it.

But somewhereI feel you have lots of time to decide and categorise yourself. Based on caste,creed, religion, color, origin, country and many more. You are so busy in others life that you forgot about your own.

You must’ve heard that,”Your body is your temple.” Your mind is the strongest and you alone can win any battle. Start to believe yourself and lead a healthy life. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of your dear ones. When you are doing good, rest will fall in place. Your presence matters to your family and friends so stop worrying much. Instead of thinking a lot about past and future. Accept the present and enjoy your life. Life is precious. Stay healthy and happy!

Pray everyday that I disappear from earth soon. Hope that the scientists can find a vaccine ASAP. Afterall, there is a solution to every problem. Until then wear mask,wash your hands and maintain social distancing. Stay safe!

Yours
Corona(COVID -19)

I don’t know anything about Corona

What are you checking in the newspaper so deliberately that too everyday? Please give it to me, let me check it. I don’t know what you do with it. Are you really reading anything? I don’t find anything new in it. Still every morning you just keep reading it and utter some numbers. What’s going on? Why are you so tensed? If you are done with it, can we have some talk.

You are telling, I am busy reading news now as Lockdown is there due to Corona..

You are sitting with the laptop most of the time. What are you doing? Before you used to carry it to your office. If you are not going to office than atleast be with me. It’s so frustrating to see you at home but getting busy with laptop. Let me look into it and find out. I don’t know why you have to open it everyday.

You are telling, I can’t go to office now so working from home as Lockdown is there due to Corona..

I have heard you many times telling me that I should avoid the mobile. But I can see you attending calls all the time. Sometimes you lock the door as you are busy in video call. You are telling me it’s office meeting. I don’t know why you are using the mobile so much. It’s not good.

You are telling, at present it’s the only the possible way to communicate as Lockdown is there due to Corona.

Why noone is visiting our home? Did you ask our family and friends to not visit our home?Tell me. Noone is ringing our door bell. You are not taking me out also. I can see you at home all day. Instead of sitting at home with laptop, can’t we go out and have fun. It’s so boring to be at home when we can go for a walk instead. I love to walk with you by holding hands. But…

You are telling, I can’t go out for a walk or noone is going to come now as Lockdown is there due to Corona.

It’s been so long, we went for any outing.You have promised in my birthday that we will travel to new places. And believe me, I loved the idea. From our past trips, I was so much loving the travel. It’s so nice to roam around in a new place with new people. Now, when I am asking you about our next trip.

You are telling, we can’t go out for vacation now as Lockdown is there due to Corona..

My life has changed from past few months. I was so happy before. Now, things have changed drastically and it’s all because of Corona. I don’t know anything about it. You have never told me about it earlier. You have changed a lot from past few months as you don’t share everything with me now. I asked you so many things but everytime it ends up at Corona. Sometimes I feel so irritated that I start getting upset. You know it but you don’t do anything to cheer me up. Your love has changed suddenly. I don’t know what’s the reason behind the sudden change. But I am not liking it. Everytime you are just giving an excuse by saying that it’s all because of Corona.

You are not interested in taking me out but simply saying as Lockdown is there due to Corona.

Can we please go out like before? Do you remember when we last visited the mall? Leave mall visit, you have stop taking me out in car for long drive. You know how much I love to be with you in the car. You have stop doing all the things that I love. I am getting bored at home. Please say to Corona that I don’t know anything about it. But I want to live freely and happily like before.

Note: This is the most possible conversation, my toddler would’ve had with his dad seeing the present scenario. But it has not happened yet as he’s just 18 months old and he can’t speak so many words. I can still feel it in his eyes which keeps looking at the door and sometimes asking his dad or me to go out. Although we take him for a walk in the society park sometimes or in the corridor but it’s still not like before.

What surprised me the most is that, now he knows that we can go out only after wearing a mask. He reminds us everytime to wear it before stepping out of the door. It might be just to get the grocery from the downstairs grocery shop or just watering the plants in the corridor. Our mask should be there. At present, he doesn’t know anything about the Corona situation as he’s too small to understand it. Right now, he knows about his toys, running around the home or loving us. With the prevailing lockdown situation, he is adapting himself like the rest of the world. Like him, everyone’s life has changed. But it has not stopped. It’s time to be positive and stay safe.

Stay safe!

Stay at home!

Today’s I am writing a recipe “Sooji/Rawa Balls” which is very healthy snacks/breakfast and easy to made. I learned this recipe from one of the food blogger page from facebook. Although, this recipe is very similar to Sooji pitha but only the frying and tarka process is different. Sooji pitha is one of the dish of Bihar. Generally, people make pitha from rice flour but if you don’t have rice flour then you can use sooji as a substitute. You can make plain sooji balls or pitha and you can also stuffed it with different stuffing items like channa dal paste mixed with spices, poppy seeds paste mixed with spices and grated fresh coconut with khoya/mava and sugar/jaggery etc.

Being a foodie and cook, I just believe that there is no rule for cooking. Think, Experiment, Explore and Break the Rule and Cook. So today I am cooking and writing a recipe which is again related to my childhood memories. This recipe is related to my uncle (My Father’s Friend), Actually it is his recipe only. Me and my mom learnt from him only. Few years back there used to be a get together business party happening every month at my home in Patna, Bihar. My father is a businessman and he used to give party to all his friends and business circle. And the menu was always the non-veg dishes like chicken curry or mutton curry with litti chokha and pulav. One day, one of my father’s friend Vinod uncle came early at my home and asked mom to let him cook the dinner for today’s party. He said,” He will make some different Bihari dishes.” So, after my mom’s permission he started cooking and he made awesome dishes which we never had before. He prepared Sooji litti, Bhuna mutton chaap, tomato chutney with soya leaves, Bhuna laziz aloo, Keema pakoda and Yeah of course litti chokha (the mandatory). And at night, everyone loved the food made by him and appreciated a lot. From that day, I was in love with sooji litti. My Mom learnt everything from him and I learnt from my mom. Vinod uncle was no more with us but yes his recipe, kindness and helping nature is always in our heart forever. So, sharing his recipe and it’s dedicated to him only.

Hello Readers!

Hope you are enjoying reading our blog. After a long time, I am back with my thoughts and emotions which are converted into a poem, hope you will like it. Keep following us on our different social sites and please do subscribe our blog & pages.

14th February,2019, India. When the whole nation was celebrating Valentine’s Day “The Day Of Love” then one scary and pain full incident was happened on the Jammu Srinagar National Highway. This was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at lethpora, in the Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir, India. A bus carrying security personnel was rammed by a car which was carrying more than 300 kilograms (660 lb) of explosives including 80 kilograms (180 lb) of RDX, a high explosive and ammonium nitrate. It caused a blast and the attack resulted in the deaths of 40 innocence Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel of the 76th Battalion and many injured. The attack was done by the Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed and the attacker was Adil Ahmad Dar, 22 years old, a member of Jaish-e-Mohammed Terrorist group.

It was the deadliest terrorist attack on India which left the whole nation in tears and shock. My this Poem is dedicated to the Indian Soldier as a tribute who have been killed in this attack. The Whole Nation will remember your’s brave-hearts and sacrifice always.

SALUTE, SALUTE, SALUTE!!!!!!

Jai Hind!
