Starting 2018 with one and only Positive Vibes

Thanks Aval Vikatan (leading Tamil Magazine. Part of Ananda Vikatan) for letting me start my New Year with more energy and positivity.

When you think its waste,

It’s absolutely waste

When you think its precious,

It’s absolutely precious

It’s up to you and your thoughts,

Bring out the best.


Here comes my “Waste to Taste” recipes (recipes from leftover food), which is getting overwhelming response all over Tamil Nadu. These beautiful post cards from public to Aval Vikatan (shared by Team Aval Vikatan) about my recipes gives me more energy, positivity, happiness and taking it as Award to my hard work. I am sure I would try hard to give out my best and thanks all for the support and making me happy.

English Version of Post Card 1 – Deepa’s Waste to Taste recipes from Aval Vikatan, is being more useful. I am gonna try and taste all these dishes one by one – Vatsala Sadhasivan.

English Version of Post Card 2 – Preparing food by putting all over efforts, and at times it becomes leftover and gets wasted. But now onwards we could make tasty food from these leftovers. And so this book is being a Boon to all of us – Chellaiya

 

Launch of Sachin Saga (mobile game) by Sachin Tendulkar, Bangalore

Launch of Sachin Saga (mobile game) by Sachin Tendulkar, Bangalore

Got an invite for the launch of Sachin saga animated mobile game depiciting “Sachin Tendulkar” by Jet Synthesis at ITC Windsor, Bangalore.

Arrived on time, as the game was to launch by the Hero of the Game / Icon of India – “Sachin Tendulkar” itself, there was tight security. One could see pilots around the area, along with tight security, entered the hall where the launch is to happen after the security process.

The game was displayed and the interested people where allowed to play for few mins. There was a small crowd of news reporters, T.V channels, Cricket critics and Bloggers. The event started by the host with a little intro to the game, and then there came the key persons of Jet Synthesis to share about the features, how, when, where and why the game came into existence. They told that there were 30 motion cameras for the shoot, it took over months as they interacted with Sachin to follow and understand his styles. Moreover, they also stated that they have team spread across globally to work for the game.

After 30 mins of time of all these conversations, there entered our Icon of India – Sachin Tendulkar, everyone stood at their place and welcomed him with a huge applause. Really, I felt like a dream sitting there and it was a miracle in my life, since I never ever dreamt of meeting Sachin Tendulkar in my life. No words and not only from me, we could see the excitement, shock from each and everyone over there.

He shared his experience in the making of the Game – Sachin Saga and there was a interaction session. Next to that, all our cards was asked dropped at the entrance of the hall, later it was taken to Sachin and he was asked to pick three cards. And the respective person of those cards where given 3 chances to play with Sachin Tendulkar and we had a visual treat of Sachin batting infront of our eyes within meters of distance. Later the first three people who played the Sachin Saga game was called to the stage, and where gifted with a cricket bat which had the autograph of Sachin and the more luckiest part was they received it directly from Sachin with Beautiful clicks.

Inspite of crowd, I somehow managed to take a selfie with Sachin Tendulkar – Icon of India, I would proudly say that this was my very first feel towards that word “LUCK” which I kept on longing throughout my lifetime.

I would like to thank third child – MADRAASI for what am I today, without you nothing would have been possible in my life. Next comes my followers, friends, family, well wishers who kept and keeps supporting me still now.

Deepavali / Diwali is an important Indian (Hindu) festival celebrated by all the Indians in India and across the world. As we are in the land of “Unity of Diversity”, each and every state people celebrate it in their own way, also Diwali is celebrated in two different states whereas south Indian celebrates it on 18 oct and North Indian celebrates it on 19th oct. Being a south Indian and living together with so many region people in our apartment, glad we got to celebrate it for 2 days.

Madraasi Deepavali Celebrations at home / Diwali celebration 2017

We (South Indian) wake up, early in the morning, apply oil to the head, take bath, later start preparing snacks and food for pooja. Once they are done, we perform pooja, get blessing from the elders, and elders of our family distribute the new dress to everyone. After wearing the new dress, we have our breakfast, and the breakfast would be served in a banana leaf with too many sweets and savories that has been prepared all over a week time. As sharing is caring we distribute sweets and savories prepared in our home to our neighbors, friends – wishing them Happy DEEPAVALI.

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #134 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
