Why I love India (series)

HAPPY HOLI!

Beautiful series on ‘Why I love India’ on rediff.  Living away from India, we can especially relate to Shobha De’s sentiment on what she longs for when abroad. “When I’m away from India, I miss: The smells!…The smell of masala, mogras, wet matti (earth)”

Discover the entire series here.

India Republic Day – January 26th

leave a comment »

64 years ago India adopted a new constitution making it a republic, a country of the people, for the people, by the people.  Republic Day is more than just a holiday.  It is a celebration of the freedoms and opportunities afforded to all Indians.  The Constitution, among other things, includes the following Fundamental Rights for ALL citizens: 

  1. Right to equality
  2. Right to freedom (speech, expression, life and liberty)
  3. Right against exploitation, prohibiting child labor and human trafficking
  4. Right to freedom of religion
  5. Right to conserve one’s culture, language or script.
  6. Right to constitutional remedies for enforcement of Fundamental Rights.
  7. Right to education.

A lot of progress has been made despite many challenges.  But India is, at best, a work in progress and a lot more still needs to be done.  We believe in India’s immense potential created by the huge human capital – a population of more than one billion citizens – who together will make India truly incredible.  We applaud Aamir Khan for creating and promoting ‘Satyamev Jayate’, which exposes the state of India’s rights and freedoms.   This hard hitting series from 2012-13 is a must watch.  It is available at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=ELHRj2Wug-qa0.

Watch. Feel. Act. For those who are unfortunate and helpless…

To freedom…

Indian Cranberry Chutney

leave a comment »

With thanksgiving just around the corner, I was hoping to add a little Indian flavor to the traditional cranberry chutney.  I wanted a recipe that  good but also simple and quick to make .  So after some fruitless (pun intended :)) internet and recipe book browsing, I have come up with my own version of an easy cranberry chutney with an Indian kick.  Ingredients are underlined

Slice 1 large red onion into slivers and saute until it becomes transparent.  Add 1 tbslpn black mustard seeds. Quickly add the paste of 2 medium fresh garlic cloves, 1 tblspn red chilli powder , a pinch of Asafetida and 1 cup of fresh cranberries.  Simmer until cranberries are mushy and fully cooked.  Add 1 tspn sugar.  Blend and add salt to taste. 

That’s it!  Happy thanksgiving everyone!!
