I am finally beginning to understand and appreciate how logical Indian food is. Pepper has many medicinal benefits. Milagu Kuzhambu is a staple in South India during winters because it helps prevent and cure the common cold. The dhal in Kottu has high protein. Protein in-take helps burn energy slowly during the cold winter days.
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus
For several weeks now, Adi has been observing the falling leaves and the beautiful red and yellow colors on the leaves. We both enjoy the fall beauty…but only hastly..as we rush to school and drive back and forth from activites.
Today afternoon, Adi came back from school. I surprised him by saying “The camera is all yours for 1 hour today afternoon. Look – the rain has stopped and the sun is out. Let us go photo shooting!!”.
His jaw dropped. He said “Are you serious?! Stop kidding Amma”.
We got in the car and drove around…stopping here…pausing there. We discussed how best to click a particular shot. I don’t know much about framing..but whatever I knew, I taught him.
In our part of the world (here in Northern California), Fall doesn’t bring as much beauty as in the Mid-west. However, we enjoyed the red and yellow leaves and how the vibrant colors stood out in our city.
Hope you are enjoy this Fall as much as Adi and I enjoyed scouting for Fall pictures.
”Children praised for intelligence preferred to find out about the performance of others on the tasks rather than learn about new strategies for solving the problems” – NY Times
Diwali (or Deepavali, the “festival of lights”) is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn (northern hemisphere) or spring (southern hemisphere) every year.
