The pot thanks

As I enter into this new kitchen, ready to marinate my thoughts and whip up something palatable, I need to take a bow before two friends who literally dragged this sloth into this new world. Shashwat, who is a chef-d'oeu·vre himself, is not only my mentor and Guru in the big, spicy oven of journalism but also a dear friend whom I will always look up to. And Sanjay, my good old friend, you should actually get a gong for keeping up with your patience and hope on this.
Till I bake something new, thanks buddies!

Life is delicious

Good food ends with good talk.
Geoffrey Neighor must have been quite a gourmet to say this.
Thanks buddy, for helping me, and many more gourmands like me, who love good food and a good conversation with equal appetite.
And life has hardly left me to starve on either of them. Every day is a new recipe. On my way to work, at work, off work, there's always a big buffet to dig in. So many stories each day, lying free, sauntering happily, pass me by and I wonder, why the heck was I fasting till now.
So here I am, ready to serve and have the cordon bleu.
Come, let's dine.
