Him & Her

I gave him a turtle
Slow and steady

He gave me a baby
Loud and noisy

I gave him language
Simple and easy

He gave me meaning
Deep and strong

We travel miles
Not moving at all

We live through days
Measured in seconds

My heart stops
His love remains

Our journey continues
Through a jungle of pain

Raindrops of tears
Clouds of sleepless nights

And time that envelopes
A sad letter with an ending

A letter head reads, "Heartbroken"
Beware.

Beautiful.

Its called completing each other. Once in a way, life blesses us by giving us a person that completes us.
And once in a way, it takes the person away... But love remains...

Brilliant. I too once had a turtle called Henry that I gave away... how much we traverse with the ones we love, without leaving our rooms ... or bodies...

Thank you all. I think this goes out to a man that's been there for me, through a lot of the things that life throws out.

Sowmya, you're right. they may be gone, but not much is forgotten. Sometimes a curse, but sometimes, it's just special.

mehak, thanks darl.

Anon: Welcome back! Unemployed, oh why?

Pram: Yes, how much love transcends everything. But it still amazes me how sometimes, something so wonderful is just not good enough.

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...

Myth

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

Findings

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…
