~ A bit of Summer~

"Summer is coming"the soft breezes whisper;
"Summer is coming" the glad bird sing.
Summer is coming - I hear her quick footsteps ;
Take your last look at the beautiful Spring.

The summer season is the hottest time throughout the
Indian subcontinent. Hot & dusty winds & scorching
heat are two inseparable constituents of this season.
The period of Indian summers starts right from April
& lasts till June . Chilled beverages accompanied with
salads & light crackers is the best way to satisfy the
summery cravings .

Save our tigers

~ Save Our Tigers ~

Tigers have been an integral part of our culture and
mythology . The Indian subcontinent has been home
to these juvenile beauties for a very long time . The Tiger
reserves- right from Corbett to Ranthambore have been mystical
meccas for the tiger lovers . The royal beast is the symbol of
strength ,power & leadership . Besides being our National

animal , it finds a place of great importance in the Indian
mythology- as the carrier of Goddess Durga too.

While our National animal is fighting for its survival & our
conservation experts are working hard for the noble cause ,
lets embrace the cause by making our little ones aware
of their social responsibility right from the tender years.

Little Food Junction pledges to join NDTV's Save Our tigers
by creating Tiger themed fun foods on the blog
 to make lil ones embrace wildlife in the urban scenario.
All good things start with Kids - what say ???
