Six tastes to start the perfect Telugu New Year.

 
First of all a Very Happy ugadhi to all of you :). 
Now this is how i celebrated my Telugu New year. how was yours?. 
 Started the day with a bang climbing trees, plucking flowers like a monkey.!
people who are curious to know about ugadhi festival. Wiki Helps.
Coming to the Ugadhi Chutney. The eating of a specific mixture of six tastes called Ugadi Pachhadi) in Telugu language symbolizes the fact that life is a mixture of different experiences (sadness, happiness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise) , which should be accepted together and with equanimity through the New Year.
The special mixture consists of:
Neem Buds/Flowers for its bitterness, signifying Sadness
Jaggery and ripe banana pieces for sweetness, signifying Happiness
Green Chilli/Pepper for its hot taste, signifying Anger
Salt for saltiness, signifying Fear
Tamarind Juice for its sourness, signifying Disgust
Unripened Mango for its tang, signifying Surprise.
Since my festive mood is still on. It's going to be a real long week-end. 
Wish you One =). 
Any plans this week-end?


P.S : Ugadhi Chutney recipe over here.

The day, we enjoyed the madness with each other.

yes!!. Married the love of my life. Met my 'Ajay ' for the first time in the year 2005. While the madness of crazily falling in love continued, As years passed by, I discovered myself more, each day being around him. It is, more than a decade of madness in every way possible. 2016 was the year that a North (Indian family) & south (Indian family) poles.!! :p, finally met each other. More than the word LOVE, It was caring for each other brought us together. The only serious conversation of our lives was, Bindu : Even after years, Why do i enjoy your company? Ajay : Ha..ha.. Let's get married!! Bindu : Before me, u got to marry my father!! Ajay : Holy shit, Let's do this. It has taken him a decade to make it happen, The journey has begun. One Life, One Love. xoxo

Life, the way I Indulge.

In case you are new to my blog, you should know i love gardening. My little garden is filling up with. Baby white / pale pink roses, though am not a fan of flowers,   white flowers just bring that little curve on my lips.  Music consuming me. my  recent thought. for more : https://www.facebook.com/sreebindusthoughts/ We all are busy in our lives, the more new experiences i face on daily basis,  the more i question myself?.  What am I busy with.?! busy doing. what others want? or busy doing, what I thirst for!. Prioritizing moments, schedules, doing what your heart is craving for, you just cannot miss the pleasure of being happy. It's kind of addictive. I must warn though! Have a great day ahead xoxo
