About the Author:

The Girl Who Changed My Life had been written by Pawan Aditya, Assistant Manager in MNC, who was brought up in a small town, Bilaspur in Chattisgarh.

Small summary:

The girl who changed my life is a story of a boy named Adi, who suffered ups and downs in love boat and got shattered many a times, learning new lessons in love life. He is well supported and encouraged by his mother to have positive attitude and Adi shares everything with her mother.
He was trolled and flipped by many girls starting from his school life to college life to corporate, where finally he meets Kavya. He gets mesmerized by her simple yet revolutionary thoughts. She has the potential to do something for the society and believes in returning back.
Being a love story, the genre seems very appealing & interesting to many youngsters who have experienced the essence of love & sacrificed that for other’s happiness.

My experience with this book:

When i started reading this book, i always thought its just another love story, but I am intrigued by the story and its development. I think that the plot and the characterization is well done. This story is for anyone who needs inspiration and motivation to understand the different sides to pain.

The novel had a deep impact on me as it involves a series of different emotions. Author has shared his serene moments with us through this. People can have different way to look towards it. While reading the novel, i was able to relate to events of my life, which were sometimes full of joy, love, care and on other side had pain, compassion, sorrow & other difficulties. These emotions are soo strong that they make u hard and hollow from inside, so you cannot even give a next chance to love again. But in this story the main character, is always supported by her mother to never give up, as all girls are not the same. It gives you a lesson to always move on in life and never get disheartened.

The book also has presence of  big Guru Dalai Lama and his famous quotes which are deep enough for some1 to take time to understand and perceive in its own life to purify the thoughts and again gain positive attitude. We should also learn from this that all relations full of love, dont last forever. Friendship can be turned to love if they have understanding and care to abysmal depth.

Do read this book to understand Love sides and how to deal with breakups !!

Our Urban lifestyle exposes our skin to millions of micro particles that directly enter the pores and damage the core of the skin.

Pollu-Stop creates a transparent and natural shield against pollution and decreases dramatically the particles invasion on the skin. The skin is immediately protected against pollutants, and they cannot enter the pores any longer. It also creates an invisible matrix of vitamins and essential nutrients that fight against skin ageing and soothe the skin, giving it a unique “soft touch”

For Sake of Love | Review

Start of new year and love of month Feb flows in soon. I started it my new resolution to read books and engage myself to learn new emotions. Love is not my type, so thot to try a romantic novel for my resolution. I choose to start with 2018 new book, “For the Sake of Love” by Anamika Mishra. Since she is from my hometown Kanpur, I preferred reading her thoughts.

The book talks about Love and being loyal to it. Author has well expediated the meaning of being in Love. Now a day’s people do everything in exchange of benefits, but Love is an emotion to feel and flow with no benefit strategies. This book narrates a heart touching love story of a David and Jasmine who stayed in Shimla. The story flows in present and past both, with perfect connection with reader. No ambiguity in writing which again makes it a good read, with its simplicity.

About the Author:

Her debut novel Too hard to handle was released in Sept 2013. This is her 3rd novel and must say , her writing has improved to large extent. She understands her readers well and writes the plot which keeps you attached to book, and wait for climax.She is also a blogger and occasionally delivers motivational talks. Writing is her first passion.

Review About this book-

For me, Love is a commitment to live for & by of someone, who may be yours, but still you have trust & be loyal to it with nothing in exchange. Falling in love is easy but being in love whole life with the same person is something which not everyone is capable off.

Book started with amazing and simple love letters, which every1 can relate to and have a smile on their face. Book cover shows a couple sitting on a bench, which plays a major role in story and is connected to their symbol of love. I completely rejoiced the book.

This starts with love letters written by David for Jasmine, his childhood love. Story keeps on flowing with the letters in different years and how Twisha/Booby/Alex help them to complete their love story. Story is narrated by Twisha & she is main character in story. The end of one is beginning of other and this leads to Connection between Twisha & Alex. Plot is very interesting and keep readers engaged. Its neither too slow or fast , so well paced.

Gajjar ka Halwa Recipe

Gajar ka Halwa is a light nutritious dessert with less fat than many other typical South Asian desserts. The dessert is traditionally eaten during all of the festivals in India, mainly on the occasion of Diwali.It has a medium shelf life so its always better to prepare little and consume early.

As per Wiki, In 300 grams of gajar halwa there are 268 calories (76 come from fat, 180 from carbohydrate and 16 from protein). It can be prepared easily usin g microwave or pressure cooker but i dont like that taste, since gajjar doesnt get enough time to soak and dry. To add rich taste to your halwa, so that its melts in mouth, cook it in milk, and add khoya at end.

So let me share my recipe ,which is very easy and taught to me by my Mom and grandma.

Time to cook : 1.5hrs

Ingredient:

  • 2kg carrot (गाजर)
  • 400 gm Khoya (400 ग्राम खोया)
  • 250 gm Sugar (चीनी)
  • ½ litre milk (1/2 लीटर दुध)
  • 50 gm each of almond, nuts & raisins (50 ग्राम कटी हुई बादाम, काजू ,किशमिश)
  • 1 spoon cardamom powder (इलायची )

Collage

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel, wash and then grate the carrots. You can grate it manually using grating tool or you can use food processors to ease out your work. (take 15mins)
  2. Heat a pan and put the grated carrot and cook on medium flame till the raw smell disappears. (approx. 20-25 mins). Don’t hurry to go to step 3. Let water evaporate properly so that carrot can consume Milk nicely in next step. If you leave carrots slightly wet then Milk will not be properly consumed by carrot and it will not melt properly in mouth at the end.
  1. Add milk and boil on low flame till thick. You can put a lid over your pan and relax for sometime. It will take minimum 20 mins. You can stir in between so that carrot doesn’t stick to your pan.
  2. Once it starts thickening ,add sugar and stir. Cook on low flame for further thickness. When you add sugar, it will again leave lot of water, so cook evenly to let water evaporate. This step again takes 15-20 mins. Stir in between.
  3. Meanwhile grate khoya and keep aside.
  4. Once you see carrots are dried (least wet), add Khoya, which you have grated before.
  5. Continue to cook and stir the carrot mixture till it dries.
  6. Add cardamom powder and stir.
  7. Finally garnish with almond, nuts and raisins.

Carrot Halwa or Gajjar ka Halwa is ready. Serve hot

Tawa tales has focused more on menu, which shows the amalgamation of so many dishes. This team has special relationship with several indian cuisines – from heavenly paranthas of Amritsar to staple dosas of chennai to spicy Kolkatta roles to litti choka of rajasthan.

In veg we had, Paneer Butter masala with Lachcha parantha,which was delicious. Paneer was soft & tender blended inside masala thick gravy which was medium on scoville scale. Lachcha parantha was perfect shaped and not at all oily. Next we tried their Parantha menu, where we had Mix & aloo parantha. Must say, had such tasty parantha’s after a long time. Fully stuffed, well cooked parantha’s with perfect flavors & taste. Simply loved it.

In Non veg we had , Chicken tikka masala roll, which again was served hot and tasted delicious. Chicken was soft and tender with perfect sauces inside Parantha.

In drinks we had Modi nagar ki Shikanji, which was refreshing lemon mint masala, tasting tangy and mouthwatering. In desserts, we had Walnut Phirnee, which is classic indian milk pudding thickened with rice flour with dry figs & walnut served in clay pot.

Must recommend place and would definitely try their food again.
