Stepping into 40s and all that jazz

Grey hair at the roots, a hint of crow feet, a body that has seen better shape, loose fitting clothes and a permanent resigned expression is something I often associated with the 40s women growing up.

B is for Besan ke Laddoo #BlogchatterA2Z

Do you remember the scene from Coolie in which Amitabh Bachchan tries to prepare French omelette using a recipe shared on the radio? There is much mashing up between the recipe and yogasans, courtesy the tied and hilariously vengeful Rathi Agnihotri. He ends up twisted into a knot, one egg hatched and the others lying… Read More B is for Besan ke Laddoo #BlogchatterA2Z
