Crispy Thai Pancake and some books which i read

How does it feel when we taste something  new which make us crave for it more
Thats how i felt when i had Thai Pancake known as Khanom Bueang for the first time
Crispy pancake filled with Coconut Cream and lacy coconut filling
perfect with my favourite Coffee

There are some books too which i read past week

The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak is a story of woman whose lifes changes after reading a manuscript which she has to edit.Before reading the book she was busy in her own small life .I luved the way the story unfolds and and all the forty rules of Sham the Tambriz were truly inspiring,this book also gave me insight about Sufism and introduced me to Rumi .13th century sufi poet.
The Burnt Shadow  by Kamila Shamsie is saga of  a young  Japanese woman whose life changes after the Nagasaki  bombing ,how she comes to India and then to Pakistan and finally to United States.Book has to be read for the detailed description of the culture of different countries and how the tragedies and event shape the characters .
Beneath a Marble Sky by John Shors is mesmerising tale of Jahanara Shahjahans daughter ,entwined in her own life she tells the event which took place while Taj Mahal was being built.
Thats all guys more in the next post

Coffee time and some books - Weekend wrap up 38

Its been so long  since i read ,sipped cofee
relaxed and thought about life
and thats what i did this weekend
this mug of coffee reminds me of my sis
and the cold Delhi nights

we would be lost deep in conversation
when suddenly she would be seen
with a mug in her hand and a spoon
and our conversation would  continue
she would continue beating
and then would be back again
with a mug of coffee
now when we both are busy
in our own life
we just have these sweet
 memories to cherish .
Soma of Ecurry has shared perfect post in her blog about how to beat coffee
Books which i read
The True deceiver by Tove Jansson
Your place or mine ? by Julie Highmore
