World Sparrow day

~ World Sparrow Day ~ 

A sparrow is to the city what a tiger is to 
the forest !! The chirping of the common 
household sparrow which we all have grown
 up listening  is much on its verge of extinction.
The urban jungles with skyscrapers and high
 levels of pollution are playing havoc on 
the friendly chirp !! The World Sparrow day
 observed on march 20th each year has been
 designated to raise awareness about 
house sparrows !! Started by Indian 
conservationist Mr. Mohammed Dilawar 
the World sparrow Day is now observed in
 many countries to appreciate and
 conserve biodiversity.

Sparrow Love !! 

Sparrows- Whole wheat bread , yellow bell pepper, 
cheese n caper. Chicks- Sliced cape gooseberry
(rasbhari)  mustard seeds n red bellpepper. 
Nest - baby spinach n  purple cabbage. 

Daughter and I love the magical chirping

 of sparrows and thus decided to show our 
love for the birds in our cute food way ! Isn't it
 nice how foody activities besides giving message
 to the lil ones can be  greatly relished by them too.

I am a great fan of outdoor spaces n birdhouses,
 and often my meditation sessions n morning tea 
happens there!! Though I greatly miss the chirping
 of sparrows in these concrete jungles but yet a few
 plants, flowers and some tiny knick knacks 
perfectly add some life to the gloomy urban
environment !!  

My Sparrow crocreature …

Few days back i had done a series on creating art
 images by using varied elements of crockery …
hence the name Crocreatures. Jus in case you missed it

Holi-some Food (for Child Magazine India) 

India is a land of colours , our lives revolve around 
it , each celebration reflects a million 
 in form  of food, decor, apparels etc. The  festival
 of holi or the festival of colours is a myriad example
 of it…...The joy of Holi is incomplete
 without aromatic eco friendly pigments and loads
 of treats!! Loved creating these cute treats for

Eating out

~The best places to eat out in the city~

 In today’s world, indulgence has become synonymous to 
the beautiful way of living, whether it’s apparels 
or accessories, automobiles or hi tech gadgets, or an
 evening out with friends, we are always looking for something
 that could tantalize our senses.With the craze for the limited
 editions and the tenfold increase in upscale living with
 modern amenities; and the paraphernalia of indulgence,
 we are gladly acknowledging the famous quote of 
living life king size. A bit of indulgence off and on is a 
perfect way to pep up life and add a little more spark to it.
 The mere mention of the word is enough to evoke our 
senses for the finer things in life. Pampering the five senses
 every now and then is surely the best way to maintain the 
balance between work and life, though of course, pampering
 the sense of taste surely tops the list. 
Life and food surely go hand in hand and satiating
 the taste buds with some food around some gorgeous
 ambience is surely what most of us believe in.
Our national capital, New Delhi and NCR, undoubtedly,
 tops the list when it comes to indulgence and pampering
 in the form of best food! The exclusivity and creativity of
 both the menu and the décor for me truly reflects in 
these gorgeous restaurants - Olive bar and kitchen, 
Lodi – The garden restaurant, Veda, Lavaash by Saby n 
Oh! Calcutta.

Olive bar and  Kitchen

Situated in Mehrauli, the Mediterranean décor of the place
 is truly enchanting. Nestled amongst huge trees with a
 cobbled courtyard, the place is the perfect epitome of 
indulgence and exclusivity on a Sunday morning. 
Their Crispy fried poached egg is truly something
 to die for.

Lodi – The garden Restaurant

Considered as one of the best restaurants of the city, this 
beautiful al fresco themed restaurant does full justice to its name. 
Sophistication along with nature creates an exclusive experience
 for the food enthusiasts to savor the delicacies, this 
place offers. This casual dining restaurant serves 
some best garden fresh salads.

The pan Indian fine dining restaurant is greatly known not 
only for great food but also for its gorgeous and exclusively 
designed interiors. The dramatic interiors with crystal framed 
mirrors and elegant yet super stylish chandeliers truly steals 
your heart, as it is the best example of exclusivity and
 indulgence. Their Veda Spinach Chaat is surely a must try.

The brainchild of award winning chef, Chef Saby,
 is highly popular for its chic colorful interiors and
 exclusive Armenian delicacies with lip-smacking 
Bengali touches. One can enjoy the picturesque view

Their Crispy lentil sticks are a must try.

One of the best restaurants in Delhi, Oh! Calcutta serves
 authentic Bengali cuisine. If you love Bengali 
food then this is the place to rock on!!The subtle yet
 gorgeously  done interiors truly remind of the British
 Raj days. Their BhajaMoong dal is lip-smacking good!!

So these happen to be a few of my favorite destinations
 that strike a beautiful balance between exclusivity and
 indulgence. It will take you to a great gastronomical
 journey, pampering both the palate and the eyes.

The second best thing that we Indians are addicted to
 besides food is our love for the cars! The glossy beasts 
are the best way to indulge into a lovelier world of class 
and style. Oh, did youcheck the recently launched 
limited edition Dzire Allure?? It just reminds me that all 
finer things are always limited!!!
Limited Edition Dzire Allure comes with beige 
carpet mats, elegant interior styling kit, side skirts and 
stylish body graphics, which is a perfect amalgamation of 
enhanced comfort features and elegance!

Maruti Suzuki has been a brand icon, and when it 
comes to cars geared up with safety and style, they 
have always proved to be the best!! And their limited 
edition Dzire Allure is yet another testimony to 
the brilliant work they do, exclusively for the customers.
