To all my fans and readers, here’s wishing everyone a very Happy Independence Day a day later! India has gone a long way in achieving this freedom, in which we enjoy our lives today. And it’s never too late to remember all those heroes, some of them unsung, who had sacrificed their lives for the India that it is today…65 years is surely a long time! The office on August 14, 2012 had my entire team dressed in the tri colours and the HR had arranged for some sweets and the Indian flag badges to give that amazing feeling of independent India. I somehow couldn’t catch all this fun as I was busy shooting for an upcoming campaign of Sweekar Sunflower Oil in Kandivali East.
Amongst other things – there’s travel on racks by the end of this month for an event in Chennai. Also, a day off in the weekday is always a relief amidst the hectic day-to-day schedule. As it was, yesterday, a great day at home with family celebrating the joy of Independence. Also, August 15 is my dear friend and partner Harsha’s birthday. Had a good get-together, Happy Birthday Harsha!
Reached Singapore this morning, on my way to US for a business cum pleasure trip. Alyona is accompanying me.
In the office, there’s a frenzy of activities happening with the Youtube shoot and the trials for the upcoming book on Pregnant Women. Nutritionist Seema Goel was here this morning, to educate my team and give them some basic guidelines on cooking for pregnant women. It was a great session as the team learnt quite a bit from her. Also, a session on Communication Skills by Rajeev Matta is being lined up for August 18, 2012. All in all, a totally informative and educational weekend this time!
As I wrap up, let me share some recipes that will go perfect with the Independence Day mood…
