Food that touches your heart


Given the kind of stress-filled lives we live it’s so important to stop, take a breath, look around & lend a helping hand. Sometimes I feel that we are so blessed, that we are able to make a difference to the lives of others, it doesn’t always have to be with money, but small gestures go a long way too!…

The importance of being ‘well-thy’


You meet so many people in a day. Now multiply that into weeks, into months, into years. Difficult to comprehend a number, right?

What’s in that packet?


After all the talk around substances in packaged food, there have been eyebrows and questions raised about the ‘goodness’ of it all. I, for one, have consciously become more aware of what I buy and make it a point to read all the fine print and labels of any packaged product that I buy. Yes, I’m trying to cut down…

A taste of Bengal


Sometimes the best food you get to eat is not at five star hotels with their fancy linen and cutlery, it is actually at these discreet places that you wouldn’t have thought of giving a second look at. The restaurant scene in Mumbai is crazy, there’s a new one opening every other weekend and while this spoils you for choice,…
