Woman

I heard this poem in a movie long back.It was a movie about a couple of African American  women but the rest is sort of vague.

In a world where everyone is becoming finicky or are being taught to do so,we sometimes forget the essence of a woman is not whats on her but rather in her.Outward appearances are given so much of a priority in these times and men being men....at least most of them,they seek their appeal on how a woman makes them feel down there..than what actually is really admirable about her.Anyways,

Its "Phenomenal Woman " by Maya Angelou.



Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.


I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or

Looks I adore......

Arthritis

This topic will interest a whole lot of people as rheumatism and arthritis are one of the many diseases people have today and it can range among kids as well as young and old.

I have been suffering from RA (rheumatoid arthritis) for around 4 years now.It started when I crossed 30 and as usual I have inherited this from my family.Rheumatism according to modern science is a kind of a blood disorder and those who suffer from it know its something that changes your life altogether.Some don't have so much pain while some find it difficult to do even the simple daily chores of life.I know the hard way.I know the value of doing something as simple as holding a spoon or a brush or using the toilet and even walking.I remember screaming in pain as I couldn't get up from my bed or chair and needed help to even sit up straight ad having no help whatsoever other than my husband who could assist me when he came back from work.I remember all those nights when I cried in my sleep,wetting my p…

Dal Kulfa recipe

Lets clear these Indian names first. 

Dal means Lentils and there are so many varieties of them.Most of them are cooked in almost the same manner,but a few of them are cooked with Milk,few of them are added in combination with other dals.A few of these can be combined with mutton or chicken ( cooking these differ a bit).Also they can be cooked with a variety of vegetables and green leaves like spinach,purslane or saag.In the end dal is a wholesome meal on its own,eaten either with rice or rotis or in the form of soup.If you learn to cook it well,then good for you.They say the simplest things are sometimes the tricky ones to cook.Too much blabbering....okay lets move on.

Kulfa is Purslane leaves.My hubby says they are cooling things..in the sense...you can eat them in the summers.Spinach is a heaty thing I've heard.Anyone wants to correct me anywhere,please go ahead.

I used red lentils as they are my favourite,they cook faster and I love to eat it with rice,matta rice or basmati r…
