Some days back my husband came back from a run, which he probably has once in two months and he tells me with full of excitement, “Oh I have come  across this new song called ,”Despasito.”  Its really good for running.”

I try to hold my laughter. I wanted to tell him, grandpa but all I told him was, “Yeah, I know that song but it is quite old now.”

My husband gives me a confused look, “Oh ! I thought it was a new one.”

Now I am laughing at his discovery…

Later just a day or two after this incident, I was taking my son back home from grandma’s and grandpa’s place.

At 8.30 p.m., we are stuck in crazy traffic. I was astonished to see so many vehicles on the road.

Then I realised, “Now I get why there is so much traffic on the roads. It was a Saturday!”  All the youngsters were out on the roads.

Now who is the grandma? Ha ha ha…..

It had been ages since I had witnessed a Saturday night  traffic.

Gone are those days when I was out watching a movie, eating junk food and staying up late on a Saturday night.

But honestly, I like this time of my life when one is not worried what to do on a Saturday night and everything is planned. Like a Saturday night in our house is home cooked food and of course it has to be something tasty and a movie pre-recorded on Tata sky.

Sometimes I wonder what an erratic life I used to live before my son.  I cannot recognise my older self. Thus, so many of my old friends cannot recognise my new upgraded version. But personally I like this version of myself as I am a happier and a more secure person today.

I feel chaos was necessary to embrace the peace! 😊

Sharing a recipe which my mother once cooked at her place and to make our Saturday nights more eventful, I seldom cook something like this paneer vegetable wrap.




2 tbsp oil

1/2 cup carrots chopped

1/2 cup french beans chopped

1/2 cup peas

100g paneer chopped

3-4 wheat roti for the wrap

1/2 cup coriander-pudina chutney

2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp turmeric powder

2 tsp garam masala

2 tsp amchur powder

3 tsp chat masala

Salt to taste

1 onion cut into rings


In a khadai heat 1 tbsp of oil, to that add the green beans, peas and carrot.

To these vegetables add all the masalas-chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, amchur, chat masala and salt and cook for 2 minutes or till all the spices are cooked.

Add the paneer, mix well and take it from the heat. Let the mixture cool down.

Take a roti, apply green chutney on one of its sides, then put the vegetable paneer mixture, on it add onions rings.

Roll the roti carfully into a wrap.

Apply oil on its sides and cook on a tava till the roti is brown.
