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.

Most people tend to get caught up with the ever-changing trends. Unable to cope with the trends, people often give up on exercise.
