Not just for the love of food

WKND - - Meet The Team - 10.03.2017 • vol­ume 33 • is­sue 04

ately, I’ve ac­quired an in­ter­est in click­ing food pho­tos. Even if the light­ing is very bad and the grub doesn’t look par­tic­u­larly ap­petis­ing, I’m al­ways ready with the cam­era phone. Some­times, both the light­ing and the pre­sen­ta­tion are spot on; add to that the in­ter­est­ing fil­ters; re­sul­tantly, my ef­forts ap­pear to be fairly de­lec­ta­ble. I post some on Face­book, and What­sapp the oth­ers around; many a time, there are ‘ oohs’ and ‘ aahs’ from friends… in re­sponse. That’s made me won­der whether or not I have the po­ten­tial to be a food blog­ger — if ever I can sur­mount my in­nate lazi­ness and get around to open­ing word­press or what­ever other plat­form it is blog­gers use. What wor­ries me is that if I can start day­dream­ing about be­ing a blog­ger — on the ba­sis of a few pass­able pho­tos — there must be an aw­ful lot of folks out there, who have a far more vested in­ter­est in food, who want a piece of the blog ac­tion. In this week’s lead fea­ture, we tell you what it takes to be a real player — and stay ahead in the race. And, as usual, it’s all about the bot­tom line!

Child sleep­ing with par­ents: good thing, bad thing? Off the top of my head, a baby sleep­ing with par­ents ( or even just the mum) is es­sen­tial; but how long should this ‘ co- sleep­ing’ con­tinue? Does sleep­ing with par­ents make a child non- in­de­pen­dent? Or emo­tion­ally sta­ble? Find out. Is your life too clut­tered — lit­er­ally and metaphor­i­cally? You’re not alone be­cause bag­gage, phys­i­cal or emo­tional, is tough to get rid of. A ‘ clut­ter coach’ gives de- clut­ter­ing mantras. Use­ful stuff.

Tiger spot­ting was the orig­i­nal goal when this is­sue’s travel writer went to Band­hav­garh Na­tional Park. Didn’t quite turn out that way. But there’s more to the jun­gle than big cats ap­par­ently. All this and much more.

En­joy read­ing wknd. and have a great week­end.
