Couldn't think of anything to write on but thought to leave some words as it has been a week since I last posted. I wish, as many others that I had more than 24 hrs a day. This weekend was a blink. Didn't do much other than trying out some cooking, which I am majorly not into. Usually. And nope, I can't cook. Well, things like sandwich and boiling rice in the rice cooker are exceptional here ;) I didn't even know how to make tea when I came to Uni. and until my friend taught me how to. Yesterday passed by with shopping and cooking with friends. Mum wouldn't believe that we cooked. When I occasionally say that I am gonna try and cook something when I am at Uni. house, she ignores me as if I am talking impossible and carries on with whatever she is doing. Or otherwise just smiles. But after the cooking experience this weekend, I really don't think cooking is a hard job. It's just about mixing and boiling of things in right amounts. I believe.

So tomorrow is Monday. Grr! Waking up early, 9-5 lectures.... still gotta prepare for my hosp. session tomorrow and a lot of work to finish up. Studies are becoming very arduous and I have already given myself enough time thinking on how to manage my time well. But still haven't got a clear plan, like, eat times, sleeping and waking times, study time and all. Luv to wake up early like 5am and I tried to do that a few times. But then that the window opens after a couple of days and I am back to my usual. Hehe. Anyway, am signing off now....
Take care!!

***It's just about mixing and boiling of things in right amounts.

Haha, mixing and boiling, how about frying?

All things are easy once you know how to do, isn't it. It's just the start that is the problem :)
Congrats on your first cooking lesson. Try the products on yourself before trying on others, we don't' want any causalities... HI HI

Though the men are the real cooks, you all (girls) also should know how to cook. I can, not joking :). Dont be proud of and say that you cant cook, I dont know how to prepare the tea even ;)
Anyhow good that atleast you have tried to cook:) have a nice time...

Kochu: some things can only get better..and cooking is one. And I am not too old.. to think about my "yet-to-know" mother-in-law, what, and whatnot should I know/do to make her happy. Lol. and there could be a lot more better reasons why should a girl know cooking than just for mother-in-laws n partners. But I accept that cooking is a skill, indeed. U were right. And anyone can master it if they have the interest and its not a great deal to learn it. Its easy, from my point. Maybe I did not precisely put my view in words when saying mixing and boiling. Ah well.
But if an expert cook reads my post, they will of course get hurt a lot..hehe.thanks for ur comment and sorry, I will check in urs soon :)

Anonymous: Pardon me Sir. I am learning cooking, and the point was that I was proud of it. Proud of learning it... and knowing more cooking than I did before. I guess you misunderstood me!

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …

What Saranya means?

Does any of you believe in these kind of quizzes and answers? Stumbled on this site while googling for something else....Though I don't take these serious or believe them, just reading them is often fun :)

What Saranya MeansYou are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the wo…
