Happy Birthday JANEY!!!!!!

So many birthdays this month...

I'm tired as hell

(now cross fingers and hope our darling remembers her user name)

I want vacation on Easter break

I want Devbagh

Are u ppl listening???

I want shopping

I will not crib

Yea, what's the story ppl???

Hey any one wanna guest write on my blog.. annonymity will be granted... lemme knw..

It's hot in Bangalore.. and it's not even proper summer yet.. and there are no mangoes yet, there is no water.. there is no electricity...

I'm working this weekend... n the nxt week till the easter break... cut short one day by Saturday

I want the beach. Fresh NON-DUSTY air



Now that all that's out... The Indian cricket team's been at the butt end of most jokes in this country... sad to say.. for when they left they were heroes.. who when they came back were well.. zeroes...

It's sad actually. What's sadder though is that the National Sudoku Championship.. and any story pertaining to the Indians participating in it, comes under the sport section of the damned news paper.. I want to write in.. asking them why Sudoku or rather when Sudoku became a sport??!!!


Personally... on the personal front.. There's an upcoming office party... at a some place I keep forgetting... it's a first.... cross fingers


Confession: I got three kids to clean out the back garden/yard... two were 9 n the third one that kindda watched n tried to help bt wasn't allowed to.. was 5... Is that child labour? They asked for work.. and well I gave them something to do that had to be done but no one at home wanted to do... and paid them with some money n food..

Repeat: Is that child labour?

Cz if it is... I want to know, baby sitting kids.. is that considered child labour when it's a ten year old that does it?

So what of the babysitters club? How about walking dogs?

I've been having beer twice a week here and I'm starting to feel guilty about the flabby tummy i have.

I think it wouldn't be a child labor if you keep to your mind that you are just helping the kids with all your heart.

i miss you.
i will email you soon.

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…
