Yolked for life

Eggs and potatoes have always been a weakness for any average Bengali. Especially for an average common Bengali like me, who has gone through hostel life. Lots of hard-boiled eggs, mashed with boiled potatoes and eaten with hot steaming rice with a dollop of ghee or butter — it is manna from heaven. And for many Bengalis, it is a staple diet, eaten even during breakfast!

Country comfort

I grew up in the UK and I still believe that there is something exceptionally special, even poetic, about a scene of rolling green hills, carpet-like green grass and well-fed cows. In short: the British countryside. Add to that the plethora of pink cherry and apple blossom in spring, tulips of all colours, creeping wisteria, woodlands of bluebells, gardens and immaculately-cared-for parks and throw in a gastro pub lunch and a magnificent country manor house.

Max your moves

There is plenty of evidence of the positive effects of exercise. Recent studies have shown that exercise can improve both psychological and physiological aspects of health. Long-term studies have also reported that exercise can help with depression, obesity, heart disease and diabetes. However, there are lots of fallacies around exercise. Most people tend to get caught up with the ever-changing trends. Unable to cope with the trends, people often give up on exercise.

The kids are all right

My 10-year-old cannot go to sleep unless he is in physical contact with someone. Even if it’s for just 10 minutes before sleeping. How do I change this? He will be going to boarding school next year and I need to get him out of this habit.
