RECIPE FOR SUCCESS 

Made pancakes this morning for breakfast and Chettinad vatha kuzhlambu, from scratch.

I am not proficient in either of these and so followed the step-by-step method given on the internet. Thank God for Google!

The most important instruction that was given for the pancakes was: YOU MUST FOLLOW THE RECIPE EXACTLY TO GET FLUFFY, TASTY PANCAKES!

Thus got me thinking and yes, mulling!

When it comes to technical processes, management steps, chemical formulae, manual instructions and cooking recipes, we are masters in following them exactly and intrinsically to achieve great results. Good for us!

However, when it comes to following rhe Good Book, as the Bible is known, we dither and mutter, we dilly and dally, we argue and compromise, we tweak a little here and cheat a little there and then except results!

When we fail, we blame the Master Architect of the WHOLE  UNIVERSE and take Him to task for our woes! Nothing anywhere goes wrong with the natural world and everything goes like clockwork, unless we have intervened and messed it up in some way somewhere.

Funny, isn’t it? Tragic too, for instead of running to Him to help, we run away from Him who can actually fix it all and set it!

ITS LIKE TELLING THE MASTERCHEF THAT HE OR HIS RECIPE IS WRONG, WHEN ITS OUR FAULTY IMPLEMENTATION THAT IS THE ROOT CAUSE!

A BIT OF HEAVEN

Neeta missed it all

The open spaces of her village, the trees that swayed with the slightest breeze, the golden wheat and yellow dal fields, the freedom of being able to roam like an unfettered bird, the smell of flowers in the wind, the lowing of the cattle grazing placidly, the camaraderie of the village well, the song and the music.

She did love living in Delhi, loved her husband and was proud of his work. She loved the lights of the city, the eating places, the malls, the shopping markets, even the constant noise of traffic.

But how to survive in a concrete jungle?

She created a garden.
