Twitter Twitter Cheep Cheep

I 've spotted a pair of sparrows nesting on top of my Ac railing box and constantly hear them tweet and twitter and feel so good hearing them.The simple reason being in my city vizag and in most parts of India the sparrows are disappearing ...getting extinct.The number of flats that are mushrooming are clear reasons for this there are absolutely no nooks and crannies for them to build nests.The felling of trees and lack of open terraces where in the past women dried foodgrains that served as food for these cute little birds are also considered reasons for their extinction by scientists.Nowadays, no one buys grains most buy ready made flour that needs no airing outside.Its sad that at one time the twitter of sparrows were almost in sync with the sunrise and sadly you hear it no more.Hope people will do something to save it like the tiger.The only twittering we do hear is on twitter the popular networking site.

Curry Bashings

I was amazed to learn that racial attacks in Australia has been dubbed as curry bashings and my site basically a food blog has made me see this close knit connection our food has on our social and political standings.As a good curry is loved by one and all over the world I m sure that one day food will be a major positive bond for people across the globe.However I am an optimist and don't see the entire people of Australia as racist perhaps a few closed minds exist all over the world but they aren't exactly strong enough to cause a major upheaval in humanity.I am really amused that while on one side we are constantly trying to find alien life and even going great lengths to befriend if any do exist and on the other we can't live in peace with people of this earth for whatever political/social reasons.

Morning Ragas

If your mornings are almost like mine... chaotic,son getting ready for school the bus arrives ...shouting at him to gulp down that milk while your toast is burning and the little one is squealing on the top of his lungs to pick him up and your husband wants a sunny side up for a change...and also to ask if his tie and shirt are well co-ordinated with his suit and your blood pressure is rising then yes we are sailing in the same boat...Everyday! relaxThis is not the complete truth as a matter of fact I forgot to add my husband is almost always juggling with the little fella in one hand and with the other he is almost trying to to get that knot of his tie right.Once they are gone I give a sigh of relief yes I've put my toddler back to sleep and I am trying to enjoy my morning cup of tea while some sweet music plays on.There is still time for all those chores awaiting me...Im dreaming of those special weekends when my husband goes out early morning to bring us some breakfast....nice and on that note I'd like to tell you about a poem by Robert McGough called Happiness...its contrary to my morning raga yet...I've framed it up to remind myself of the happiness that lies in these routines.
