Directions from a Dietician:

I have only 5 rules as a good chef… (House wives’ & husbands) in preparing and presenting the dishes…

Both P P's:-

1) Your ingredients should be visible clearly, even after cooking (while presenting the dish).

2) There should not be any garnishing factor.

3) It should be, not a pinch more or less needed,

4) Decide before presenting, are you going to present dry or a chymic one... don’t get confused in between..

5) The dish should not be too oily, salty or masalic(?) (Spicy).

I wanted to give a south Indian recipe with this: (Useful to gratify your better half)…
That will be followed in the next post.. Till then gud nite dear’s …

Pause… It’s my Birthday… and when am writing this post, the time is 12:00 A.M and the star once again is appearing after 24 years…

So here is a rhyme or a poem...

“It’s a sacred day
The day is well Saturday
I could not meet u on this day,
So any way... Keeping u on my way…”.

This is the one that I thought and written on the fly…. (Believe me … Yaar.)



All about VANIL(L)A:

Why I chose the name vanil(l)a (Now onwards its vanila) as my pseudonym for this blog?.

Vanilla's that great smelling liquid in the little brown bottle. By itself it doesn't taste nearly as good as it smells. You put it into cookies and cakes for more flavor. Vanila has remained mysterious and elusive. Yet it is an essential flavor and fragrance.
The real truth about vanilla is that it has a remarkable story, filled with history, intrigue, passion, and piracy. It’s unavoidable. More over vanila is clear, creamy and scar less. In that way, it resembles me… :-)

Sambar, Rasam & Aviyal.

21’st June. The day, before 24 years in the place called Madurai, A star revealed the birth of a sacred spirit, Shravan. As a mark of the auspicious day, a small Lunch is arranged on 24th June (Tuesday) at Nirlon house 2nd floor. So, please don’t bring Lunch Pack on that day.
So come and join the Luncheon, that day.

Some other people who came to this world on the same day:

1905 Jean-Paul Sartre - Famous French Novelist,
1921 Jane Russell - American Actress & Former Sex symbol,
1929 Alexandre Lagoya – Classical Guitarist,

21 June is also:National Aboriginal Day (Canada)National Day (Greenland)

On This Day In History:1788 New Hampshire admitted as 9th US state.1898 US forces capture Guam, during the Spanish-American war.1982 John Hinckley found not guilty by reason of insanity, for the attempted assassination of US President Ronald Reagan.2004 SpaceShipOne becomes the first privately funded craft to achieve space flight.

Three hours torment:

I have seen kamal hasan’s “Dasavataram” on the second day of its release. In one word if it has to be reviewed, He became a narcisst. Ten avatars of kamal is a torture really. Even the movie particularly the script is made in a way that should house 10 carnations (Record???). The movie would have been a nice treat if he really could have sacrificed 4 or 5 of his avatars.

Kamal Hasan as white Guy, as George Bush, as a black guy, as a Chinese, as a RAW officer, as a scientist, as a 8th century high priest, 8 ft tall guy, 95 years old granny and a sardar. Kamal has become mad.

Even till “Hey Ram” it was good. It has got a good script.

But, after that??

Abhay: a psychic story only a psycho can watch.
Mumbai Express: Better if it would have been named as “Mumbai Circus”.

And now Dasavataram.

Gone are those bygones: Sadma, Salangai oli, Raja Parvai, Nayakan, Devar Magan, Appu raja, Ek Duje Ke Liye etc…

100 crores is the figure spent (?) for nourishing Kamal’s ego.

The truth behind Y-M-T

Yantra's are symbolic compositions of the energy patterns. it becomes the representative of the deity one who adopts this. As there is the difference between mind & body,
Mantra is a mystical syllable and they are energy based meaningful sounds. (The word "mantra" is derived from two Sanskrit words. The first is "manas" or "mind," which provides the "man" syllable. The second syllable is drawn from the Sanskrit word "trai" meaning to "protect" or to "free from.")
While, Tantra pacts with all our Vedic sciences like astronomy, astrology, numerology, Physics, chemistry (Rasavada), psychology, mathematics etc.
