Not just for the love of food
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.
