Back from quite the extensive and exhilarating African safari! My knowledge about this mystique land was quite a bit, but after this trip I can say that its gone up and I feel really good that I got to live this wonderful experience of a lifetime. Navratri, this year, was not in my homeland – but I would also not regret the fact that I explored the African land with its rich culture, traditions and food, in the best possible manner. Was lucky enough to be back just a day before Dussehra, so caught up with some usual family routine. Needed a much required rest, so relaxed in the morning. Later in the evening, went to town for some shoe shopping for my daughter Kriti. As we were there, so decided to catch up with my sister-in law Jyotsna and nephew Manit. Had a great time with both of them and returned back in the evening, had dinner at home and retired for the day.
Here’s wishing all my fans and followers a very belated Happy Dussehra!
Yesterday was the usual day in office with meetings lined up. There is a Blogger’s Meet coming up in November, so there was a meeting with food writer and a dear friend Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal along with the team from Hungama Digital and others. Discussions on the schedule of the meet will be done over an Oriental lunch prepared by the team of chefs. The delicious menu had – Mixed Vegetable Satay, Pineapple Satay, Chicken Satay and Fish Satay with three types of sauces: Chilli Scallion Sauce, Soya Chilli Sauce, Peanut Sauce and Veg and Chicken Dimsums for starters. Maincourse had Vegetable Pot Rice and Chicken Pot Rice and ended with Paan Icecream in dessert. Post lunch, another meeting was scheduled. Watch out this space for more details on this one!
Feeling sad on the demise of Jaspal Bhatti, the original comedy king of Indian television – who can forget the satires he carried in his shows ‘Ulta-Pulta’ and ‘Flop-Show.’ RIP Jaspal Bhatti !
Besides this, Turban Tadka shoots are going on in the office studio, to wrap up tomorrow! All for now, more later…
Till I write again.
