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

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…

#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…

I Wonder What Ants do on Rainy Days…

On days when the sun has abandoned us, hiding behind the grey, moody clouds. Do they sit inside their hills and wonder out loud? Do they stare outside at the rain, measuring the raindrops, letting thoughts splotch all over? Does the earthy petrichor take them down the memory lane? Or are they content with what nature has to offer? It is a part of their lives, isn’t it? They dredge up foods daily, diligently build their hills, even if it is to serve their queen, only to enjoy it on days like this, no? Maybe they do take stock of things, of their bearings. They ought to sleep it off, take a day to rest or do they lament on the lost time?
Unlike me.
When I gaze out, a gazillion thoughts fly by; some worthy of the pen, some so disturbing that I often question my sanity. I like the grey skies though. They seem like textured canvases waiting for me to scribble something. The lazy raindrops wetting the streets below and casting a temporary stain on window ledges bring a…
