I have never understood the correlation theory that works behind the appalled reaction of certain people when they realise that I have coloured hair/certain un-womanly hairdo/tattoos and I can cook.
Let me list it down:
1. I cook because I absolutely love food and I love to experiment with everyday recipes.
2. I cook because it makes me feel independen because I can earn my bread and make it delicious too!
3. I cook not because my mother asked me to, but because she cannot and should not cook for me all the bloody time.
4. I cook because hello I can't burn my hard earned money for ordering four meals everyday+some snacks to munch+8 mugs of chai. I am a regular corporate slave :) And last but most important, I cook not because my gender demands to ingrain that attribute in my system - I cook because I want to be a self sustained human unaffected by the uncouth, tasteless words of shallow brains, to which I respond with shoving in their face a plate full of masaledar awareness that's too spicy to handle.
Rant over. Thanks for reading :)

You are not just a drop in the ocean, you are the mighty ocean in a drop......Rumi 'You are just a wave rolling on the ocean of life, and other people are waves too...rising up, creating some white foam and noisy splashes and then dissolving back into the ocean.
Each wave appears different and sounds unique....just let each wave be..
If you try and hold on to them or change them in any way they will just slip through your fingers and continue on their journey....
Just flow...just be....
From the book ' I AM ' by Stephen Shaw
