Living life, the 'Boiled' Way!!

No No, this isn't another of those depressing post, describing the sorrows of my life and what I have done to  cope up with them. This is actually a social message. Well, I am not sure about that, but surely a suggestion to the friends, who belongs to a place where intestines fails to take the hot and spicy food items and high fat junked food.  
When I came o Delhi almost two and a half years back, the best thing I liked about it was its food. Delhi is quite famous for it roadside food and delicious cheap stalls, that enriches every taste bud of yours. But, little did I know that, after coming from a land, where the staple diet and its composition is totally different, the food I took here could lead to so much complications that I had to spent sleepless nights in Hospitals.
Street Food

From Sinakji to Chole Kulche, Aloo Tikki to Cahri Chawal, ask me anytime, I am just ready to gulp all down. So tasty it was, the regular Mc Donald visits, which of course was not possible in Guwahati (First, I would not have had so much cash with me, and second, there is no Mc D in Guwahati) made my life look like almost heaven.
The basic difference between Assamese food and North Indian food is that, Assam is more of Rice based. People in Assam, unlike the North, use less Wheat i.e. Rotis, Naans, Parathas etc. Rather, the basic households don't even make such items. Where as here, its all Wheat. The second distinguishable difference in Food of the two region are the spices used. In Assam, its like negligible spice, but here in Delhi, even a simple dal is filled with spices, which an Assamese housewife would have used in a months time.
Rice, the staple food

Anyways, whenever anyone comes to the North from the East, they start liking the food here, maybe because of the change in the taste. There are also many who generates a dislike, but in the case of me, I developed a serious liking for it. I started having rotis, almost every meal, and having my mom making me eat rice forcefully every morning saying that Wheat is not good, I seriously derived much pleasure having Rotis.   
But this act of mine, made me pay a lot. Pay financially and also physically. Excessive consumption of Rotis and other wheat stuff and other spicy items led me to serious stomach problem, with intestine infection. And now I am leading a life,where I have only confine myself to boiled foods
Boiled potatoes 

Once you change the whole system of food all of a sudden, it becomes very difficult for the body to adapt to it. You start having stomach troubles, that might even lead to stomach ulcers. At this point of time comes handy, our good old Boiled Food. They help you clean the digestive system and keep you disease free, and being low fat content, there is no risk of being fat.
I know, this was a stupid post, I just need to show my gratitude towards all the people who suggested me Boiled stuff, and I am now recovering from a stomach ulcer problem, after spending sleepless nights. I would just like to warn the new comers from Assam to Delhi, Don't go in the flow of the taste of the food, avoid  too spicy items, and if possible, have boil one time a day.

Wish I could 'FLIRT'

I was in class VII, when I first came across the word ‘flirting’. (This apparently proves my weakness in vocabulary). Anyways, it was my friend Jyotirmoy who was talking about him flirting with a girl. As usual, an innocent me, asked, “ এই flirting মানে কি? ” Which apparently meant, ‘What does flirting mean? What an apt description he gave, he said, it is an act of conveying someone that you love him/her verbally, though you hold no feelings for him/her by heart. Mind it, class VII we were, and we were already discussing how to fake love. That was good old 7 years back, in a phase of time, where at least love was not merely a matter of one night stand. Over the time, Jyotirmoy did excel in the art of flirting on screen, no wonder, he is yet to score a girl, but he has surely excelled. This is an art, an art probably all of the cool dude modern guys surely have good hands on. But what I am more concerned about is actually described in the last part of the last line of th

Life on the Wheels: Mr Ram Kumar

The title might suggest that the post is about some adventurous traveler, who roams the world in a four wheeler exploring thousands of kilometers. Indeed, he travels thousands of kilometers, probably 36000 km a month, yet he is not adventurous traveler, and probably we would never imagine our lives to be like his. Life on the Wheels Meet Mr. Ram Kumar , the coach attendant of the Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express . Mr. Kumar, with just 4 holidays a month, travels all the way from New Delhi to Dibrugarh via Guwahati serving passengers and back. Again the same day he leaves for Jammu with another fleet of passengers and the cycle goes on. Four holidays is just like nothing, a resident of Bihar, it takes him 2 days to reach home from Delhi and unlike the so called posh Rajdhani where he serves; he boards a general sleeper class compartment to get back. Yet, he wears a badge saying ‘Serving with a smile’ and severs to every new face which he meets in his journey without any compla

Love? Arranged? Naa, Semi-Arranged!!

After fighting the battles of Education and Job, most of the youths today ultimately go through a war in their homes regarding their take on Love Marriage or Arranged one. Though exceptions are always there, but generally our life is filled with various battles, the battle for Chocolate , the battle for Excellence in Studies , the Battle for Job and ultimately  the battle for marriage . Unlike the previous generations, where parents used to commit their close friends that 'our dosti will be converted to ristedari', parents these days are way cooler and acts according to the wish of their sons and daughters, though always in some corner of their mind they always long for Arranged Marriage, which seems quite obvious. But the real problem is with us. What are we suppose to choose? The most interesting fact of the present romancing generation is that, almost most of us are associated in multiple relationships. The magazine concept of Playboy, is quite a reality now with
