Adam the conqueror!

It hurts very bad to be Adam. When a bad word comes out of his girlfriend's mouth, it feels like a punch in the stomach. First it's a small burst, then a ka pow and then it's a slow journey through the rib cage and right into the heart. Here, the bad word lands right in the middle of the heart to dispense small electrical pulses that goes down to the spine. Spine chilling. And this is how he felt most days a mean word came out of his girlfriends mouth.

But today was not a day like that. Today was the day he took a deep breath a fire burnt very fast right through his chest and straight to the pinks of the cheeks of his face. And then the usual happened, some of the anger on it's journey dripped into the mouth and set the tongue wagging.

And off he went in a tirade of smoke and fire, bringing up the past and the present. In a furore of emotion, at his girlfriend's insolence, he grabbed the arm of a very hot kettle and threw it on her head.

And Jane felt a meteor, a single deadly hit, like the bulls eye of a dart board, hit the top of her head. And all over, poured the very hot water, burning, sending the very shingles of the cells of her skin on fire.

GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA RRRRR RRRR RRR RR R she shouted and ended with a big fat tear and a sharp inhale of breath followed by a whimper denoting the fine end of a very loud scream.

She fell to the floor and kept crying, watching the skin on hands and legs peel off.

At last, thought Adam, I'll never feel the hurt again!

And so the worm thought of the apple, I love thee
And the apple thought of the worm: I feel so loved
And we all thought of them: "And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy."

*********************************************************************

O Rose, thou art sick!
The invisible worm
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy : The Sick Rose by William Blake

Anybody can become angry - that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy.
In this case I say The first time Adam had a chance, he laid the blame on women.

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 …
