Escaping Heartache

The only reason I am glad I don’t own a dog/dogs is because I don’t have to go through the heartbreak of losing them.

I fall deeply in love with friends’ pets and when they die, it depresses me like few things do.

Dogs bring so much joy into our world. A listening year, a warm lick, a playful nudge, a moist nose, a wagging tail knocking things down or just a pair of eyes you can’t ever say “no” to – they bring it all.

And when they leave, they take with them a world of goodness, leaving a void that refuses to be filled.

Remembering one of my favourites – Bubbles – as she celebrates her birthday today in Doggie Heaven. The stars, my dear, must be smiling with you.

Aloo-ha!

It is no secret that I’m a lover of potatoes.

Love them in most forms – aloo (potato, in Hindi) paratha, mashed potato, chips….

But my most favourite is fried potato. Yum yum yum.

Add to that another of my favourites – curd – and I travel to food heaven and back.
