Kheer - Anupam Kher's short film debut

I took Anupamji's picture during his visit to Connecticut for performing "Mera Woh Matlab Nahi Tha"

Presented by Terribly Tiny Talkies, stand out starring by ever amazing Anupam Kher, Natasha Rastogi and child actors Stuti Dixit and Abhimanyu Chawla, directed by Surya Balakrishnan and written by Sharanya Rajagopal and Surya Balakrishnan. A story took place when grandkids came home to visit their grandfather, where the grandfather, played by Anupam Kher is in a tricky situation of introducing his lady friend to his grandkids. It was a great cinematic experience of 6 minutes 44 seconds. It is like Indian Kheer full of sweet flavor and twist of spice (cardamom). Like making kheer, one has to be picky incorporating all the ingredients, dry fruits to hint of cardamom. It was exactly same experience with Short film kheer, a wisely depicted middle-class life with every single detail including a not working wall clock, to a worn out sofa instead of modern-day interior. It is worth stirring, I mean worth making for the audience with a beautiful twist. Veteran actor Anupam Kher as always had his best foot forward. Natasha Rastogi was great too, so were grandson played by Abhimanyu Chawla and granddaughter Stuti Dixit. Kheer always leaves a smile and Anupam Kher's debut short film Kheer did the same, a happy, hearty content smile. A sweet treat for valentines day. 

Happy Valentine's day!

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
