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

Today morning was definitely a very special one , 
daughter presented me a beautiful card 
along with some gorgeously painted stones (to be 
used as paper weights )!! Some  great hair girls on
 the card became the inspiration for food art too !!! 

Spreading the colour of joy, cherishing and making 
every moment of life worth living for everybody 
around ..thats what life of a woman is all about !


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 
March Issue of Chid magazine , India(pg 14,15,16)
