after spending two yr three months in Singapore which is worlds safest place,going back to Delhi ncr gives me goosebumps specially after the recent bomb blast which took place in delhi markets,but then this is something which has no solution,,,for few days after the blasts i was really depressed,but i know the more i think ,the more depressed i gonna be,..and i think a lot when i am not doing anything, way is to keep myself busy so that i dont think negative things,..:-) ,after tiring myself by doing packing whole day, is something which i look forward to destress myself ,ya ,cooking acts like therapy for me specially these days when i am busy with packing and all..all i want is hot dal chawal with subji, such tiring day i felt like trying Onam sadya dishes
