Chocolate room, a cafe with zen-like ambiance at Kochi Lulu mall


I am a regular visitor at Chocolate room cafe on the second floor of Lulu mall at Kochi, Kerala. Situated in a very quiet spot this cafe, in my opinion, has a zen-like ambiance. Away from the hustles and bustles of the mall we can enjoy a variety of pastries and drinks leisurely. The menu has lot of variety and I think everyone can find something of their liking here.

Ladies' finger, organic cultivation at home

                

My 100th post...!

This is my second post about Okra / Bhindi / Vendakkai / Ladies finger cultivation at home organically.

This variety is different from what I have cultivated before. This is giant sized elephant tusk shaped ladies finger popularly known as 'Anakkomban venda', in malayalam, our local language.
I ate the ones plucked today raw ! Yummy !

Happy Republic day, India


The Constitution of India came into effect on 26th January, 1950 and India celebrates Republic day on the 26th of January every year.

Today we celebrated the 67th Republic day ! 

The main celebration takes place at Rajpath, in New Delhi, the capital city of India before the President of India. Our Prime minister and all other dignitaries will be present and before them the Army, Navy, Air force wings, paramilitary, allied and related troops parade. There will be numerous tableau from different States and Ministries. Military hardware also will be on display.

The Chief guest this year was Mr. Francois Hollande, the President of France.

There was live telecast of the event by Doordarshan, our national TV. Their coverage was excellent ! Their camera layout was awesome ! They have uploaded the same on You tube as well.

What I liked most was the Motorcycle acrobatic display by Corps of Signals, the parade of the Camel contingent about which Google doodled today and the brilliant display of the Indian Air force flypast!

French troops participated in the parade. This is the first time a foreign country is allowed to participate in Republic day parade, a historic event !

Happy Republic day !
