Tasty, Tangy and Spicy Gooseberry Recipe

My son taught me this recipe. While they were playing football, one of his friends brought some spicy gooseberries, of which the boys had a feast.
The boy started pestering me to make such tangy gooseberries, of which I told him in no uncertain terms that I did not know the recipe, so he went and asked his friend’s mom, learnt the method and taught me.
Both the kids helped me prepare the tangy gooseberries, and advised me to share it in my blog. I gave them my word.

Moments of serenity on the lap of mother nature

Life can be pretty hectic. But you can find your own moments of peace and creativity if you spend some time with nature. The kids had summer holidays, so we went to my home country to visit the near and dear ones.

My father is a retired medical professional, it was amazing to see how he uses his time. Early in the morning he goes to the upstairs for meditation. After which he feeds some wild pigeons. It is really humbling to see the pigeons religiously waiting for the grains and having a feast.

Having eaten to their heart's fill. They fly away to enjoy their day.

I believe a few moments on the lap of mother nature can boost your wellness quotient a hundred fold.
