Journey Through The Temples of Saturn or Shani

Image
With its arsenal of shrines, temples, and palaces, India is one of the most fascinating cities in the east. It is also a country of fairs and festivals, celebrating thousands of them every year. Among all the deities, Shani or Saturn is the most feared, but Indian literature also abounds with glorification that praises his power.

Each deity or planet can affect both positively and negatively. In the case of Shani, these two peaks reach stratospheric heights or abyssal depths. India itself is particularly influenced by Shani. In Vedic Mythology Shani is the legendary evil king. He is associated with death, poverty, illness, separation, sadness, and perversion.

The figure of Shani is one of the most complex, in the Indian religion. The main difficulty encountered by scholars is to discern what part of the cult belongs to the original figure and what part is due to later modern influences. His relationship with Brihaspati or Jupiter is also shrouded in legends, which is evident in Indi…

Travel Fruits: Rating The Best Fruits For Travelling

Image
I am not a foodie.

But I do love fruits.

Luckily for you and I, fruits can be found all over the world though not all are easy to travel with.

Many fruits are prone to bruising. As travelers, we all have clumsy moments making some fruits horrendous to travel with on a day trip let alone multiple days. Oh, how I wish bananas had a rock solid skin!

In this post, I'm going to mention some fruits you can find around the world and have a quick chat about their practicalities for traveling (from my experience).

Then I rate them.



Banana


Caption: I absolutely 100% recommend making a banana with peanut butter and raisins for the ultimate snack. Affectionately named the peanut butter banana boat.

The banana is found around the world, although they’re often imported in non-tropical climates like my homeland, New Zealand. Somehow they manage to bring bananas all the way from Ecuador to the shop shelf undamaged. Crazy!

The Good

Bananas are easily ID’ed. Although there are lots of varieties with …

Taste of Indian Street Food through Chandni Chowk in Delhi

Image
One of the things I like to do when I travel is to try the local gastronomy. And of course, if you travel on a budget you have to forget the luxury restaurants of the category. This does not mean that you will have to eat sandwiches every day, or that you will eat poorly and less healthy food. So, are you ready to go on a journey in taste?

In fact, if you are planning a trip to Delhi, eating good, nice and cheap street food is easy and yes, be prepared to discover the magical world of stalls, each of which specializes in a different dish of the local cuisine! In front of a few, you will find benches to sit and eat.

In Indian street food, the spices are the heart of the food. They provide a unique color and flavor, and that's why each cook makes his own secret spice mix, and this is how the magic in each dish is produced.

But my goal is the Chandni Chowk area, a less touristy chaotic market frequented almost exclusively by locals, which beyond the food havens has the world of spi…

Eggless Orange Loaf Cake Recipe

Image
Tasty and juicy, oranges have always been a favorite among the fruits. Orange, besides being a tasty fruit is also a healthy fruit. Orange can be an important part of our diet. There are many reasons why eating an orange a day is a good idea; they are low in calories but full of nutrients, they promote clear, healthy skin and can help to lower our risk for many diseases and conditions as part of an overall healthy and varied diet.

The most common way of having an orange (besides eating it raw) is drinking orange juice. But we can think of other ways of eating an orange or better to say incorporating its flavor in our food, right?
Yes. We can do that. And a simple way of doing that is baking AN ORANGE CAKE. There are many varieties of orange cakes. Sometimes we decorate an orange cake with simple whipped cream frosting. Sometimes, we cover the entire cake with an orange marmalade.

But today, I’ll be sharing an easy and simple orange loaf cake recipe. This cake doesn’t require any fros…

Travel Adventures in a Magical Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur

Image
A trip is always a great emotion, something that remains inside. One of my crazy adventures was during a trip to Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra. I was hoping to better understand this part of India that has long aroused in me an inexplicable charm. For a bit of my character and a bit of my spirit of adventure, I have always had a passion for travel, and I cannot deny the fact that travel experiences have definitely changed my way of thinking.

Before leaving I still remember that most of my bosom friends told me to be crazy. I admit I was a bit scared and did not know what I could expect, but I never thought I could be mad, indeed! It was a unique and unforgettable experience. I had the opportunity to visit amazing places and meet some very interesting people from India and the world, with some of whom I maintain contacts even today.

After getting down in the New Delhi airport, I met with Abhi, Rishav, and Ruchi, a group of unknown faces coming from different parts of India, and we all kne…

Memories of the Mango

Image
As the rainy season approached a very old man was digging holes in the ground.

What are you doing? asked the neighbor.

Planting the seeds of mango trees, the old man said.

Think you can eat the fruit? the neighbor uttered contemptuously.

No, I will not live long enough to be able to eat its fruits, but the others would. The other day I thought, all my life, I have enjoyed mangoes planted by others. This is my way of showing them my gratitude. The old man said with a heart of joy.

It is an Indonesian fairy tale that I read by chance that opens the post this week.

It's such a disarming beauty that resides in the simplicity of the phrase "The other day I thought, all my life, I have enjoyed mangoes planted by others." It is a love affair long before I knew what love was. Known for its sweet smell, and even sweeter taste, mangoes are a perfect fruit for a romantic interlude. And there have been few other fruits that have captivated the hearts, minds and tongues of the m…
