Chicken fever....


I am a foodie. I love to try new cuisines but that is limited to vegetarian fare. Yes, I like to stick to ghaas-phoos (grass-leaves...literally!), thank you. But what surprises me, are the choices my friends go in for while they order food. Be it anywhere... it will undoubtedly be chicken!


While at SCM, proper lunch was a leisure unlike just grabbing a bite of a few biscuits or vada pav. Canteen menu is limited too but chicken was always available. So for most people it would be a chicken pizza or a chicken grill sandwich. OK, considering it was the canteen and the food was nothing great but it had to be chicken. First thing they (my gang from SCM) order outside is something with chicken or something that will definetly have some portion of chicken. The first thing they look for in any spread, wherever that maybe, is of course chicken! My guy (mess food sucks!) whenever he gets a chance to eat in the city(hostel is located in the middle of nowhere), definitely eats chicken!

Being a veggie I cant tolerate eating the same vegetable everywhere but nothing can change for these chicken eaters. Trust me (no offence to chicken people here!) doesnt it all taste the same?

Sometime back a jain cousin (am half gujju...remember?) started eating chicken. Ok, this was completely out of curiosity because he had the similar chicken eating friends. He very proudly pronounced it "yummy!!" and very paneer(cottage cheese) like! I hate the comparison though.

Another girl i know, looks for the silly bird in everything she eats. I heard my sis telling her over the phone (eavesdropping is fun! " If you eat so much chicken... you might just grow wings!"


Sigh... ummm so you guys out there.... beware!

  3. Oye! Don't hate on chicken! It's the best thing ever! And you know, I've often wondered the same about veg fare...whenever any veggie goes out to eat, paneer will always be included in the order! So it's the same...look at it from the meat eaters vantage point as well! :P :D

    But I still love you!

  4. Here in North America, there's a joke that any sort of exotic meat one could encounter will come up with this response:

    'Tastes just like chicken!'

    And in North America, I would guess that much more red meat is consumed than chicken.

  7. yar maine abhi do saal pahle chicken khana suru kiya hai, i was kinda forced into having it or you can say that i CHICKENED out of vegan lifestyle... and i have loved it yaar.

    Vegan food is v good but when it comes to options... Non Veg cuisine is clear winner.
    Like all the mughlai and Hyderabadi food... biryanis, kaathis... all based on Non veg yaar...

    Its good.

Mind vs the heart

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Picture courtesy: Google. Only for representation purpose.
Standing on the highway, Roads leading both ways to somewhere, I stand still and wonder, Where do I belong?
The soothing lullabies of the green mist fairies call.  With promises to wrap me in the cool calm fog, Holding me in wet, gentle caresses, lulling the storm within. 
The call of the shrill, salt-laden sea sirens,  from the sun-baked rocks, Pull me back To join them as they make me one, in the fathomless abyss of wonders unseen. 
I lament my fragile being,  Born with one heart, not two, Torn between the ebb and flow of waves, And earthy scents in muddy dew. 
Both offer me refuge,  Cloaking me whole in their embrace, Dust to dust, flesh to flesh and soul to soul. 
In this battle between the mind and the heart, The heart but loses steam,  Leaving me stranded on a path to nowhere, never to be seen. 
My mind has been wrought with depression and all things crappy. This is a result of binge-watching a…

9 Things My Dog Taught Me About Life

And he has no clue…


I am guilty as charged. Per my husband, I spend every waking minute with my dog. If I am watching TV, he’s by my feet, if we plan an impromptu drive, he wants to come along, and at times, we do take him. My evening walks happen only because I have to take him. My social life is all thanks to him. And if you happen to mention the dog at a social gathering, I can go on and on about the pup even if we have nothing in common otherwise. Hell, I started an Instagram page just for the dog on popular demand!
I can assure you, though the husband isn’t convinced, that its all the dog’s doing. His popularity has only grown over the years, and who can resist those googly puppy eyes? He works his charm on all, irrespective of age, gender (partial to women though), color, and caste. He’s gentle with kids, super active with people who can keep up, he’s sensitive, always ready to share food (only yours) and so much more. His licks and cuddles have the power to melt glaciers and his …

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).


But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…
