Look after yourself

Even as I write this, I can hear the roll of drums and the reverberating dholaks on the roads – processions are already on with fifth day of Lord Ganesh’s festival being marked with immersions. Have we ever wondered at the following? How Ganesha’s big head can inspire us to think big and think profitability, how His big ears show openness to new ideas and suggestions, how His narrow eyes point to the deep concentration needed to finish a task well and how His long nose encourages curiosity and learning! Well, have given you enough to dwell on for the time being!
I was also reading how the mission Crater Mumbai has been shaping up. That the roads are in bad shape is in the news is not anything new. But what is alarming now is that we are losing our posture slowly and gradually thanks to them. The traveler on the road is suffering from bad backs. On the other end, even desk bound people who are in their office chairs at hours on end need to improve their posture. I hear of bad backs and stiff necks and slipped discs. I am sure anyone can do some stretching exercises after every hour of work : walk around a bit, swivel the neck, flex the fingers etc. You have to look after yourself, come what may.
A bit tied up with some work on the recipes that I will be shooting for the new schedule of Teen Patti beginning tomorrow. Time just seems to fly, really, as I am already on the sixth schedule for my show on FoodFood. What I am really excited about now is the telecast of MahaChallenge which is on from Sept 9th! You will definitely enjoy it as the show is full of challenges, goal setting, going for the goal, emotional highs and lows and of course, the inimitable hosting by Madhuri Dixit.
As I have spoken about looking after oneself, how about some healthy recipes for this rainy season.

Till I write again.
