and some would call it stalking...

I was wondering given it's around grad time (thanks bhav for posting pics and reminding me that we DID infact go to Uni), what everyone that I knew were up to. Like careers and the sort. And then I realized that I did infact go to Uni with some interesting people.. and I noticed, those that did my course, were 'complicated'. Here's a sample of the About Me's on facebook...

I like red, pigs, and coffee

trying to make peace and live with Hyphenated identities.

do not assume that the information on this page can sum up an anecdote of my
entire person

An extremely boring man (a.k.a. an extremely bald man). I too am the Walrus

context defined multiple selves in a singular cerebral space
What is the concept of "me"? Is it my existence? But I cannot exist without my
experiences. So what then is the concept of "me"? Is it my experiences? But I
also cannot experience if I do not exist.And while I might debate forever in
attempting to figure out what "me" is, it doesn't require much to figure out
what "me" is not. "Me" is not "you".

I'm eccentric, psychotic, and chaotic..

And this is how far we are connected, the lot of us that did communication. We did a degree in communication, and some where along the way we got lost, in definitions and more importantly the need to redefine and reset the contexts of the text around us. We understand what the other is speaking even if we do not know the meaning of the words they use, because we think alike. We contradict, because we say so much. A defination is a limitation for the multiplicity that is embedded in our thoughts, ourselves and even our actions.

And there you have it, my piece of thought in the Commie Pie :) And advance apologies to anyone who may object to their 'about me' being featured here. And you know when I say that, I am referring to YOU.

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 …
