This morning was the second day of the Business Strategy Meeting with Kamlesh Mukherjee, my brother Rajeev, Alyona and my team comprising of Rajeev Matta, Harpal Singh Sokhi, Satyaki Mukherjee and Anupa Das. The meeting was very focused and scientific. Hopefully we are on the right track. After that we had homely food made in our office kitchen. Nothing to beat hot chapattis coming on the plate directly from the tawa! Everyone appreciated the food made by Jaaie and Sheetal.
Yesterday, my colleague Rajeev and I had an opportunity to meet Brahmakumari Shivani at their Juhu centre which is very close to my home. Amongst the many topics that we discussed, there were two which were common, and needs mention here, that is, television and food.
As was expected, she spoke about Sattvik Food and went a step ahead of the adage jaisa ann, waisa mann by reversing it to jaisa mann, waisa ann! It means your state of mind travels into the food that you are cooking and that food is served to the end user who can be your near and dear ones. So, you have to be very careful that your state of mind is peaceful and happy and you are an emblem of positive energy while cooking food. Such food eaten by anyone would be anyday more beneficial than the food surrounded by negative energy. It is also important for the people who are eating to be in the same state of mind, not to watch the TV while eating, all in family should eat together and if conversation has to happen, then it should be light, avoiding any confrontation or arguments. Respect the food and the food will respect you.
Overall, it was an enriching experience and we are looking forward how we can propagate this thought process to the rest of the world using our strengths and platforms.
So going with the flow, let’s try some no-onion no-garlic recipes…
Till I write again
