The world is a beautiful place!

Broadly, travelers or tourists rather can be divided into two main categories. The vacationers and the real travelers. A vacationer looks for luxury at every corner. While a true traveler loves to navigate himself…whether be on foot or on a two wheeler. He does not believe in taking cabs or looking for comfort. I belong to the latter category.

Last to last year I went to Greece with my wife. Apart from Athens, we were supposed to explore two islands: Paros and Santorini. Paros is rather large while Santorini is small. However our itinerary was elsewise. We were just for a single day in Paros while we had 3 days in Santorini. And we had planned to explore both the islands on a two wheeler.

We had gone to Greece during its economic meltdown and I had underestimated their law. When I went to hire a scooty in Paros, they rejected me at first. Reason? My indecipherable driving license. Yes, my license was archaic. I had got it made during college time and at that period driving licenses wer…

Takeout from Amritsari Kitchen, Sector 63, Noida

When you don't feel like cooking, takeout is the best option. I am a hardcore fan of Punjabi food and hence I decided to order from Amritsari kitchen. This place is quite near to my place and I received my order within half an hour. Here is what I ordered: Paneer Kulcha: Punjabi food is incomplete without kulcha and that explains my order. The size of the kulcha was nice and it was generously stuffed with paneer, herbs and spices. It was not too oily (which is great) and was delicious. It was served with chhole which was nice and a great chutney. The chutney was sour and very flavourful. Lassi: I also ordered lassi to go with the kulchha and it was nothing less than wonderful. It was sweet and creamy and refreshing. Although people who do not have a sweet tooth may not like it. The cost was around 175 for all the above.

Pahmos Cafe opens in Indirapuram Habitat Centre

Casual cafes are always my favourite. And when they happen to serve cuisines like Italian, continental and chineses, they become my 'The Fav'!

The heart and soul of a car: Its Battery

Life is unpredictable. It is full of ups and downs, twists and turns, happy and sad moments. Had it been only smooth, there would not have been any excitement! A healthy heart ECG is up and down too...a straight line indicates death. Life is a journey and not a destination. And in order to make the most of that journey, you need the support of strong relationships.

A road trip is very similar to life. It is full of unknown curves and unprecedented traffic jams. Sometimes there may be ditches while at other times you may be cruising at 100 KMPH. Just like life, the requirements of a road trip are pretty similar. You need a good car (of course) which has been serviced recently, its tank full of gas, a stepney, a tool box and a charged battery. The car battery needs to have stamina, strength, and quality for that hassle-free road trip and these qualities are connotative of Amaron batteries.

Over the years,Amaron batteries have been known for their dependence and durable life. They last re…

Restaurant Review: Karma Kismet opens in GK II

For me great Indian food resonates with Awadhi cuisine and that's what got me interested in trying out this new place. Located in the posh area of GK II, I loved the place right from the start.

I went there for lunch with a group of friends. I started with a special kind of tomato soup. The hot soup felt therapeutic to my sore throat.
Then for veg appetisers I had a special dish which I never tasted before. It was shatvari ka tikka which was made mainly of asparagus and served with avocado dip. I also had paneer tikka which was very tender and flavourful.

For non veg starters, I had kala murgh tikka. The most special part of this dish is that I had a quail egg which was soft boiled and extremely delicious. The chicken tikka pieces were black because of activated charcoal and extremely flavourful.
