Running a fever right now. Just because, this weekend has seen me with 6 hrs of sleep for three days.. and need to get to work later today.. :(

Had a nice night of fun: adequate socialising, dancing, drinking and well gossiping. Didn't help that all through last night I was running a fever as well.. and the previous night I got drunk.. ( I very purposedly drank 1/4 bttle of brandy n a full litre of wine)... which to those who know me know is waaaaaay over the limit of a couple of drinks..

My eleven year old niece parked a stool in the loo to make me comfortable... kids are so smart now a days...

But I just realized I've been writing a whole load of bull shit in here, when all i wanted to say was a big thank you to all those who i met and well, made it a night of fun.. and to just the world. I know that sounds so hippy, but it makes sense to me.. it's a new year, and if anything, I've learnt one thing in the past year. Appreciate everything you have, cz u never know when or how suddenly it might go away. Ya, soppy enough. OK suckers, have a great year!

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?

There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105

Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

Mythbusters- Well this was surprising!

So there's a show on TV(unaware if it shows in India) that aims to bust or confirm modern day myths. I was reading up on whether is it truly necessary to wash the tops cans of soda to prevent possible death from rat piss. Yes, it's a disgusting thought, but more than it being disgusting I was wondering if there was any truth to it. I mean, you were probably not aware of it till I just told you, and probably have drunk a huge number of soda cans too. And you didn't die... Now that I have your curiousity:

Find below the myth and the conclusion...


Drinking from a can of soda on which a rat has urinated can be fatal, due to pathogens contained in the urine.


Adam and Jamie began with a control sample of 1,000 cans, cleaning their tops and turning a pack of rats loose for 90 minutes to urinate on them. They discovered that the urine would fluoresce under black light, then collected 1,000 cans from various locations and storage areas around San Francisco. To their su…
