it's been a gastronomic week..or has been weeks ..i have forgotten in my gluttonous state...
since the exams,namely my pre post graduate exams got over,life has been delicious.
1: first i went to this place called shalimar situated in the heart of th emughlai land of mumbai,jj area. noted for it's super quick service and value for money, it's a great place for hard core non vegetarians.we had hungama chicken for starters , a sizzling starterof a platter full of kababs.the malai kulfi falooda was yummy too.but i have had better biryani... ambiencewas so so..but when you r digging into tender pieces of meat and gorging on butter naan...the lights an fans dont really matter.

2:the lunch buffet at monza...diametrically opposite of shalimar.here the ambience is tops. the place classy,the decor spartan,even the soup is mild. but what a soup.a vegetarian soup,cream of something...and each one of us had seconds!the live counter had a choice of pastas . there were some unimaginative salads . the desserts too were unimaginative,chocolate brownie,chocolate mousse and vanilla icecream..could have done better for a continental spread but i am partial to chocolate so pardonable..
monza is in high street phoenix,lower parel.

3:rajasthani thali at place called rajdhani.. the ambience was mostly bacause of the friendly waiters and the hospitality which is so famous amongst the atithi devo bhava indians... again a place which was pure veg and yet ...we gorged.

birthday retrospect : Lebensmude and other Midlife things

This year will be the 11 th Birthday retrospect;it is a promise I keep to myself, where I write my thoughts on growing a year older. I started writing a birthday retrospect on my 25th birthday and this year being my 35th birthday post. (read last years post  BR 2018 )
This year went by in a blur –and I was happy about it. Earlier, my reaction used to be, “ Oh my God! This week went by so fast, where did the time go?” , but this year I couldn’t wait for the months to roll by. I was in a WHY IS LIFE TAKING SO MUCH TIME TO PASS BY mode . Ah! I can feel that a lot of people reading this are going to be surprised by this. Because I have always been someone plugging my day with many things to do, I was someone who was a ‘go getter’ kind of person, so much to do in life, so much to see in life, the girl with the biggest FOMO or Fear of missing out. This year I had flipped completely to the opposite spectrum. I didn’t want to do anything new. It wasn’t like I was demeaning the act of disco…

The gift

A few days back a close friend of mine received a gift. A large box wrapped in purple gift wrapping, ribbons and all, with a note saying “thank you doctor, from the Martins family” * (name changed to protect privacy)
A sweet gesture which a few patients still followed. A token of gratitude apart from the fees they paid and the medical bills. The medical profession has been subjected to major mud slinging in the past few years and small gestures of gratitude and appreciation mean a lot to us trying to do the best we possibly can.
But this gift was different.
“your patients must really like you.” I said, especially since I knew that many of his patients considered him family, and would get him fruits from their gardens, home made wines or cakes for Christmas, sweets on Diwali.
the patient died. She had terminal cancer, there wasn’t much that I could do. I didn’t want to take the gift, but the family insisted…” he replied
The doctor patient relationship is a tenuous one. The giver and …
