A Warm Hug

Food and Streets by Sadaf

Beetroot Halwa with Sesame Pebbles, Chocolate Cannelloni and Chocolate Sauce

I love February, it is, in fact, my favourite month (second only to November, because that’s when winter begins!). The month has love flying in the air and everybody wants to be with their loved ones.

February is also denoted by the colour red for me because it’s strawberry season. Chocolate symbolises sensuality and love. Therefore, my dish “A Warm Hug” has all the elements that one finds in a relationship–a relationship has rough as well as smooth phases, different colours and, a mix of sweet, salt and sour, and of course lots of sensuality. And this dish of mine has all these elements.

Beneath The Moonlight



Under the gleams of your smile, I sigh,
As the sky hums

And the moon cast its rays
On our wriggling bodies,
A tune of love plays just for the two of us
Its lyrics fathoms the link between us
And we loose ourselves to its melody.

Your eyes are golden in the moonshine,
And am trying to calculate the gradient of your lips,
That enslave me with their grandeur
The cool breeze caresses our cheeks,
I feel your heartbeat in the darkness
And its thrums pound in my head
When I hold you close in my arms.
Your violins calm my anxiety,
As you pull my strings with your charmy bow,
Sending my heart into a trance
And makes my soul dance to a jig of heaven,
I slip into happiness,
The stars twinkle in harmony above us
Witnessing the construction of our love.
A poetic radiance glow on…

Was Bowie a Starseed?

For many (most? all?) of the readers of this blog, that seems like a particularly dumb*ss question.  Sorry for the “coarse language,” but it really seems to be the only way to fully express the sentiment.  David Bowie HAD to be a Starseed (or Wanderer).

For those who are not familiar with the term, I will not elaborate here.  (Much discussion can be found elsewhere.)  But Starseeds / Wanderers (many debate the nuances and differences between those, if any difference really does exist) are characterized by a sense of alienation that starts at an early age and never goes away.  This isn’t just alienation in the community or neighborhood; it is a sense that one is from another planet from another galaxy.

Bowie’s content, both in music and in acting, focused either directly or indirectly on this kind of thing.  From the disoriented Major Tom who drifted off in space through Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars to “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” Bowie wrote (and acted and performed) this theme repeatedly over a number of years.

If you think you might be a starseed or wanderer, and you have not seen “Man Who Fell to Earth,” see it as soon as you can.  Opt for the uncut version if you can handle adult issues involving sexuality.  Chances are good you will feel a striking familiarity with this story.  (One caveat: some parts of it are quite disturbing.)
