Mr.Froggy finds green seat.

As I packed and unpacked, shifted and relocated, I got busy with all my other paraphernalia. My love for plants cant cease. I shifted them too. Offloaded by transport they landed in a messy corner. Only to seem as home for this frog.





















I dedicate this post to the F-Day of round 9 of ABC Wednesday meme. Please click here for details and more shots.



See the Sea

See the sea through my eyes. Feel my experience through my words.

Introduction: Malpe  a small town in South Karnataka is renowned for beach, fishery. Has a small Port. Forms a part of the enchanting konkan coast, which I did mention in my "Gokarn Visit" post too.  St.Mary's Island that stands few kilometres away from the shores of malpe is a heavenly place. About 20-30 minutes by ship[passenger trips twice a day] from the shore. Each visit to the island lured us for more. Never to cease natural beauty that attracts a  decent tourist crowd.

Regular city buses carrying local and outside passengers is a common scene. A conductor is seen dangling at the bus-door,  calling out for passengers, by whistling loudest, screaming at his highest vocals and constantly beating the sides of the bus as if it were his drum for the day.

Ecstatic rush, splashing waves, a happy run
Teeny weeny gal greets waves with  fun.

Manipal Rains

It poured cats and dogs. She loved it as heart sang, Oh rain dont go away rain, I like the wind blow, the water flow. The rains...let it pour, I love it to its core.


From heaven poured happy showers. Of which the green member too is a lover. Wee, sings the tree, in mirth.
Poor Peahen, Lost in rains, wonder when.






"Upkari"- From my kitchen

Serve hot, eat at one shot, even a  lot. Let me know, if you give this a shot 1. Not a good cook.
2. I eat to live not other way.
3.Special cookeries are out of my dictionary.
My cooking calibre projected. Yet I present this mouth watering "upkari" that's the pride of my kitchen today.
Recipe: 1] Tindora [ivy gourd, tondli, tendli are few names it is familiar with in India]
2] Fresh cashews Cutting method:-length wise slits 3]Fresh grated coconut 4] Mustard seeds, Red chillies, Curry leaves 5] Cooking oil [preferably sunflower oil]
Method:
Heat a spoon full oil in pan. Add mustard seeds. As it splutters, add curry leaves and red chillies[whole,slit or pieces]. Next add Tindas, sprinkle salt. Cover it and cook on low flame. Once the vegetable is cooked add the cashews and cook little more. Just before we put off the flame, sprinkle freshly grated coconut.

Simplest & tastier. It is a common- typical and notable Konkani dish called 'upkari". Easier to pronounce and mem…

Who's stronger, bugs or drugs?

Its all about the diminishing effects of the antibiotics/irrational use of it; and/or the increased mutations of the bugs like bacteria or virus.
Times of India ran a small article here -click this. Do we give up easily today for  infections, conveniently consuming loads of antibiotics? At least this is what I hear and fear is happenning around us many times. Last morning I happened to watch a regional"kannada" TV Channel also featuring a program on this topic. We catch cold, fever,sinusitis often. Just as we feel we are getting better it doesn't. So what do we do. We are prescribed antibiotics. But will "antibiotics" kill virus? VIRUS being main cause for the infections of throat, nose, eyes. They only are portions of our DNA unlike living bacteria which cannot be killed by antibiotic medicines. Hence the target turns out to be the living cells, infections are curbed, and immune system takes over the viral attack after consuming antibiotics.
However it points a…
