It is very easy to go with the herd and do what everyone does, but how often do people break their bounds and do something different—rarely!

The above statement applies to everything, including food habits. So here it goes, this time we tried Tibetan food for a change because a change is always refreshing (and very necessary once in a while!)

Being together and staying together

Before the advent of cutting edge technology, people did not require a social network to call themselves social. We used to live as a family, not of three or four but of thirty or forty. Larger numbers did induce quarrels and bickering but the entire family behaved as a single unit guided by the elders.

As mentioned in the holy bible: “Love thy neighbour as thyself”, earlier people interacted with neighbours much more even if they did not live next door. In today’s scenario, especially the housing complexes even if people live as next door neighbours they rarely interact and even look and smile at each other.
Human beings are social animals and we are all meant to act as a unit because whatever we achieve alone, together we can always achieve more! But nowadays, with daily advancement in technology—headphones, laptops, smart phones and applications attract most of us and we forget about the basics of living in a society.

People have forgotten that indulging and enjoying music is not just plugging in a headphone throughout the day, interacting with people is not just texting them via whatsapp and updating status and posting photos on facebook is not at all being social.
Although these are the current trends from which big companies are becoming even bigger, robbing people of their social quotient (SQ), Kissan India has come up with an ingenious plan to bring us together as a unit, showing us that compassion and real togetherness is much more important than just being technologically savvy!

This initiative called Kissanpur, is driven so that we as individuals meet and connect in person rather than via digital media and of course express and feel real emotions. This is a motherly initiative as Mother Nature is one of its main players. As a part of the initiative, we have to order tomato seeds online and plant them. The whole objective is to free us from our current digital barriers and come together—family, friends and neighbours to discover how the tiny tomato seeds grow into juicy red tomatoes.

There is a video capturing the theme explained above, as to how we as human beings have materialistic desires and we let them take control of our lives, neglecting our surroundings and of course Mother Nature. But there is one thing this video proves: That there is goodness in all of us, all that needs to be done is to draw it out! 

So, it is time to put those music players, headsets and laptops aside and test your gardening skills, not only to grow tomatoes but also to rekindle the connection with Mother Nature and of course rejoicing with the people you love, face to face.

Jhaal Farezi Review | Kolkata | Durga Puja Special

Jhaal Farezi Review | Kolkata | Durga Puja Special

Normally, we head out into the sun and attack random establishments but this time it was a different scenario.  We were back home after quite some time and we wanted to try out a very well known restaurant which we didn’t try before. 

This review is one of the “Durga Puja Specials” and the name of the restaurant is Jhaal Farezi located in Circus Avenue, Beckbagan in the Park Circus area. We were really looking forward to this experience due to the well known punch the food here packs.

Jhaal Farezi Review | Kolkata | Durga Puja Special

The restaurant looks like a big old house, which is gorgeously renovated and it has several sections for different dining experiences. The place of entry has a courtyard with wooden dining tables with umbrellas for dining out and a bar which is made out of stone! The place of entry is similar to that of a royal mansion and we were escorted to the first floor to start proceedings ;)

Jhaal Farezi Review | Kolkata | Durga Puja Special

The decor was quite fun, elegant and vintage! There were 3 rooms on the first floor and in each room there were portraits: each of different story line ups and they were rather interesting. The seating arrangements were very comfortable but the table space was a bit cramped. Old candles in the corners, high ceilings and beautiful chandeliers added the extra spice!

Now coming down to the lip smacking 4 course meal:

ITC Gardenia "You Ask We Answer" Event | Bangalore

We were invited for an event quite some time ago but it was recently that we came to know about the venue and of course the brand associated with the event. We were quite thrilled as we got to know about the venue and it was quite an experience indeed.

The venue was ITC Gardenia, Bangalore situated in Residency road and of course the brand associated was none other than ITC itself. The name of the event was “You ask we answer” by ITC Foods.

Black Pearl Review | Koramangala | Bangalore
The Black Pearl Entrance

Classic restaurants are always a favorite for every foodie, but just like someone needs a palate cleanse after eating the same kind of food again and again, classic settings need to be put aside and one should go for a themed restaurant. We were dining out at many locations, but even though there was a wow factor in the food the wow factor in the ambiance was missing. We were planning to go to The Black Pearl in Koramangala, Bangalore for quite some time but the plan was being delayed every time, until we got out hands on a groupon and we couldn’t control the urge anymore!
