The Sentinelese

Lets go to the andamans.. and meet the sentinelese...




Esoteric isolation, help.


The Bageta had seized control of lower end of the island, while the Onga were driven to the smaller island of Siliphus. There they thrived, establishing a small society isolated from the outside. They made jewellery of linked metal, salvaged from overturned ships. The choppy waters surrounding the Island, kept intruders at bay, while those that survived the waters were met with stone spears and war cries.

It was said, where they lived, the Onga.. where you were one of them, your stomach never went hungry. But if you were one of the unfortunate who were not with them, you became the feed that fed them, on the desserted island that they called their home.

Meanwhile on the main island, the Bageta found that the military they had come to love, since it's help was vital for their win over the fearsome Onga was beginning to be the arm that was rotting. The incident that sparked the hate was when Colonel Mount held a party at the now abandoned Onga totem centre. Some of the prominent familes of the Bageta kingdom mingled freely with the most ranking officers of the millitary. And while they ate delicacies and drank the wine of the seven islands the coalition had won, few noticed an excited Colonel Mount grab at Saro Sena the wife of the only surviving Old Cheftains.

It wasnt a surprise that it was she, that was to excite the Colonel. Her skin made of smooth ebony and her bottom shaped like the classic vase. Her eyes were blackened with kohl and her hair braided and bracketed with shells from the seas. And while she froze at the Colonel's touch, others that held their kingdom's chastity at the end of their swords quickly stepped forward, still unsure on whether the move one of hostility or merriment.

The men of the millitary were quick to respond, forming a quick oval around the crowd. Convinced that this was hostility, the Bageta prominents drew out their assortment of swords and stone weapons. It didn't take long for the military to draw blood of the Bageta bourgeoise, it didn't take long for the Colonel to spawn with the Bageta woman.

And while the Onga greeted the Bageta with stone spears specifically aimed at the hearts of the enemy that stole their home, the millitary feasted on the sorrows of the dying Bageta men and women. They waited for the Onga to launch a counter attack. The Onga never did. They lay content in their barren land, feeding on the flesh of those following the alluring scent of mystery and exploration.

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…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
