5 Amazing Non-Vegetarian Meals To Try This Winter

Winter season is on and so is the season of meaty delicious foods. With the festive season gone, this cold weather is perfect for non-vegetarian meals. Winter is a favorite season of all the non-vegetarian meals lovers as they can enjoy some hot non-vegetarian meals without worrying much about the heat.

5 Amazing Non Vegetarian Meals To Try This Winter

Here is the list of 5 amazing non-vegetarian meals that one should try this winter.

1. Mutton Lonche (Pickle)

Mutton Lonche is a Kolhapuri non-veg pickle. The Kolhapuris love their mutton be it in any form. The flavorsome mutton Lonche has a flavor that no other mutton dish can bring to the table. Boneless pieces of mutton with ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, cumin seeds and dried chilies are used to make this dish mouth-watering. After making, the pickle is fried and preserved. It can be preserved for a week when refrigerated and can be enjoyed with some rice and dal or just bread or fresh chapatis. You can even add this pickle to your daily breakfast for additional taste.

2. Bhuna Kaleji

If you are a non-vegetarian and have not tasted this dish, you should stop calling yourself a non-vegetarian. Kaleji or mutton liver contains a huge amount of protein along with a mouth-watering taste. It also contains a form of iron that can be easily consumed by the body. Protein takes longer to digest and in the process, it generates more heat in the body. So, winter is the perfect season to try this dish out. Taste it and thank me later.

3. Wada Kombda 

If you are a fan of south Indian foods and ever dreamed of trying a Wada with chicken or mutton, then Wada Komba is the best dish to wipe out your hunger. This variant is somehow different, yet delectable. A favorite among youth, the Wada resembles a Puri and is relished with tangy Gavran chicken. You might have tried chicken with Dosa and even Idli but the taste you get with Wada Kombda is something you will crave once tasted.

4. Litti Chicken

You might have heard or even tested the classic Bihari food i.e. Litti chokha, but Litti Chicken is one dish you should try this winter for a delicious taste. If it is really difficult to reach out to Bihar, then you can ask your Bihari friend to make it for you or he would definitely know a place or two where you can get this dish. This is a winter special dish from North-West corner of India.

5. Pandhra Rassa

Yet another Kolhapuri dish makes its way to our list. When talking about food items that must be relished hot, Pandhra Rassa comes to the mind. Considered as a favourite accompaniment with the mutton thali, the dish is significant in Kolhapuri cuisine. Kolhapuris love their Pandhra Rassa when the temperatures drop. This creamy, white gravy comprises meat stock cooked with dry coconut, a host of spices, ginger, and garlic. The soup-like gravy provides heat to the body and aids digestion as well. You cannot possibly have this dish in any other season because of the heat it offers to the body, thereby making winter as a perfect season to try this dish out.

Into Thin Air: The Disappearing Lives of Manimuthar’s Women

CharGlo is an initiative to provide women with sustainable livelihoods

Agastheeswari makes beedis in Tamil Nadu's Manimuthar

A silent squeak escaped Agastheeswari’s mouth as she rolled yet another Beedi. The tendu leaf smiled as the tobacco dust rubbed against her skin, killing her, silently, every time. Agastheeswari has been rolling beedis incessantly for years now, without a stop.

Tobacco kills, knows Agastheeswari.

A multi-faceted murderer, it takes away the maker, the smoker, the inhalers, the environment: everyone. Tobacco never discriminates.

What prompts Agastheeswari to incur death in its very face?

Passion? Habit? Pleasure? A Better Future? Or is it simply for sustaining livelihoods?

Hundreds of women in Tamil Nadu’s Manimuthar die every day in a bid to live a better tomorrow. They have no other choice. Rolling beedis is the only way to earn their livelihood. Agastheeswari knows the value of education. She would like her children to be educated, so they might not end up like the very beedis she rolls.

Every human being on the planet has the right. The right to live. Prof Mohan Ram could see the plight of Manimuthar’s women no more and didn’t wait for the Government’s support either.

Death doesn’t wait, he says. Life does.

CharGlo is an initiative to provide women with sustainable livelihoods

CHARGLO, his brainchild, is a venture to change the lives of 300 odd women of Tamil Nadu. To propel community growth in the right direction, this organization initiated a sustainable bio-activated charcoal micro-enterprise where women ‘Earn While Cooking’. Change is in the making, as a result.

CharGlo products help you rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul

Black Dissolves Black: Responsibly Sourced Bio-Activated Charcoal

Black is all pervading. It dissipates and engulfs everything without leaving a trace. Black alone has the power to dissolve, they say. Black charcoal, sourced from cookstove residues, will now enable Agastheeswari and countless other women to sustain their livelihoods gracefully, sustainably.

Activated Charcoal is one of nature’s most potent cleansing agents. It can draw out dirt, bacteria, toxins, and particulate matter, unclogging a million pores in the human skin. This is where CharGlo steps in, producing bathing bars, body scrubs, and teeth whiteners derived from the goodness of this nature’s wonder.

CharGlo products help you rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul

It’s Time

It’s time to extend our hands in this noble mission. CharGlo is raising funds online on Ketto, a secure crowdfunding platform, to help Manimuthar’s women and their families realize their dreams:

httpss://www.ketto.org/fundraiser/charglo

Time is running. It’s running really fast. Today, the 26th day of December, only 18 days remain until the campaign ends.

This new year, don’t make resolutions.

Act. Act Now.

For a million souls.

A small donation, a small endeavor, a small support isn’t small enough when we all join hands.

Let’s act and twist the destiny of Agastheeswari before the smoke takes its toll.

Gulf Rupee – The Indian currency which went ‘foreign’ not too long ago!

Gulf rupee banknotes

The Indian Rupee is the official currency of the Republic of India. It is accepted in a few neighboring countries like Nepal. But did you know that it was once used as the official currency by the Gulf countries until a few decades ago? Also, the Reserve Bank of India issued special currency known as the Gulf Rupee or the Persian Gulf Rupee. This was used in the Persian Gulf countries and in the Arabian peninsula as an official currency between 1959 to 1970.

History of the Indian Rupee

India was a British colony and so were many others. Some colonies were governed by the British from India. Also, India to Europe was a major trade route. All this led to many countries adopting the Indian Rupee as their official currency. For several years, the Indian Rupee was officially used in regions controlled by the British such as East Africa, Strait Settlements, and the Gulf countries. It was eventually replaced by the countries’ own currencies, but the states within the Gulf countries were still using the Rupee in 1959.

The currency being circulated in the Gulf was bought by the Gulf states from the Reserve Bank of India in exchange for sterling reserves, which were held by India. However, soon, the smuggling of Indian currency to the Gulf began. This smuggled currency was used to buy gold and smuggle it into India. It was illegal in India at that time to import or export gold.

The Gulf Rupee

Gulf rupee - One rupee note

The smuggled rupees were more than what was required to be circulated in the Gulf. So, it was sent back to India via official channels and was used to purchase pound sterling. This followed that India was effectively paying for the illegal import of gold through its foreign exchange reserves. In 1957 and 1958, the existing problem of smuggling increased to magnitudes that were deeply concerning.

The Indian government, in agreement with the governments of the Gulf and the Bank of England, decided to introduce a special currency for the Gulf. It was called the Gulf Rupee. This was done under the Reserve Bank of India (Amendment) Act 1959. Many countries including Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Muscat, and Bahrain used the Gulf rupee as their official currency after this.

How the Gulf Rupee looked

Gulf rupee - Five rupee note

The Gulf rupees looked quite similar to the Indian rupees that were being circulated in India. But the color of the banknotes of the same denomination was different for the Indian rupee and the Gulf rupee. Also, the Gulf rupee was payable only ‘at Bombay’ as opposed to ‘at any office of issue’ for the Indian rupee. And, the serial number on the Gulf rupee was prefixed by a ‘z’.

These banknotes were issued in the denominations of 5, 10, and 100. The Government of India issued the one rupee notes.

When did the Gulf Rupee cease to exist

India devalued the rupee on June 6, 1966. Several states then adopted their own currencies. Qatar and many of the Trucial States started using the Qatar and Dubai riyal. Abu Dhabi started using the Bahrain Dinar. Only Oman kept using the Gulf rupee until 1970. Oman came up with its own rial in 1970.

Lunchbox

The conversation through the letters is not an old concept in the history of Bollywood movies. Maine Pyar Kia had rocked India, at its time. The middle-aged man and woman accidentally immerse into a conversation through series of letters via daily lunchbox (not pigeons).

Bollywood movies

Black

The mute conversations are far-reaching than the verbal ones. The life-long student-teacher relationship takes many emotive and provocative turns. The movie does not leave your attention as it needs a strong focus to get a grasp of movement-oriented communication.

Bollywood movies

Chameli

Chameli is a prostitute. Every day, she awaits her customers at an alleyway. One fine day, she meets this depressed and lonely man who takes a shelter in the same alley, as his car breaks down.

5 Movies that Deftly Create an Imaginary Surreal World

Movies serve as an escape from our real world! Having said that, it requires an indeed imaginative and whimsical conscience to recreate a world, that is not uncomprehensive to our normal thought processes. A film-making process lets an artist do that. Although it requires a remarkable effort to execute in real, it easily allows a viewer to delve into some non-realistic realms. The realms that either could not be perceived by our limited minds or are just surreal and do not exist likewise. The selection of five such movies from the Hollywood that are not only critically acclaimed but also tightly grip the viewers are as follows:

5 Movies that Deftly Create an Imaginary Surreal World

Inception

The protagonist dreams and he dreams it hard! Dreams are directly connected to memories. The memorial components of himself and other characters interfere in the deliberate build-up of new dreams to solve a case of a businessman. The plot sweeps you off your feet as you finally get a grip on the subject and its movement.

Nonetheless, the director is crowd-pleasing and well-liked for these topics and he has seen to it that every feature is intricately carved.

Movies

Coherence

The plot-duration of the movie is a single night when a comet passes over. Now, the passage of comet leads to weird phenomena like breaking of screen glass of cell phones and a supernatural aspect taking place especially, on that night.

There is another life of the same characters in the same vicinity. Subsequently, the characters of the movie realize their co-being’s existence in the neighborhood. The golden twist is that the protagonist develops a desire to replace her co-being and continue her life there. Eventually, she tries to kill her quasi-twin of another world and quitting her original one. Indeed, a weird twist!

Movies

What Dreams May Come

This is the most creative one amongst all the other mentioned! It will have spellbound you by the vivid hues of painting that beam your face while watching it on a large screen. I haven’t watched this in theatre, though. Nonetheless, my imagination strikes a chord with the intensity portrayed in the movie.

Robbin Williams is warm and heartily as he hops into a utopian world of colorful environs. The strength of loves comes out clearly as he seeks heaven for her beloved wife, despite he is dead.

Movies

Upside down

This is my favorite! This movie is a childhood love-story of two gravitationally separate dynamic world’s citizens. The twin planets have flourished their civilization exactly opposite to each other. Some of the trees and mountains nearly reach out to each other planet. Hold on, if you think you can hop on and off to another planet, nope, you cannot! The gravity defies it.

Moreover, there is a discrimination between the worlds, one is considered to be a lower while the other one is of the higher stratum. The girl belongs to a higher and civilized planet. Consequently, the story revolves around how the boy tries to reach out and maneuvers to reunite with her.

Movies

Interstellar

I would not have included this movie if it did not have altered the whole concept of wormhole or black hole. The Blackhole is known as a zone in the space that does not relate to the terms of gravity, time, and space. I am at short of my words thinking how Stephen Hawking would have reacted to this movie!

The protagonist undauntedly enters a worm-hole in order to find the clues and research the norms of existence. I mean who is out of their mind! To top it all, there is a direct path to his home’s library from the matrix and inner structure of the black hole. One cannot imagine the speed of light i.e. 3 lakh km per second. The theory of relativity of Einstein is unimaginable and so is this movie.

How the Emergency changed Indian History forever?

newspaper clip declaring emergency

“The Emergency” refers to a 21 month period from June 1975 until March 1977. Though officially issued by President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed, the State of Emergency was declared by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi due to “internal disturbances”. It was called off in 1977 when Indira Gandhi called for fresh elections for March. During a state of Emergency, the citizens Fundamental Rights are taken away, they are forced to comply with the orders of the government. All media outlets are censored ruthlessly, taking away the citizen’s source of information about the state of the country. The Emergency of 1975 was the third state of emergency that had been declared in India, it was preceded by one declared in 1962 during the Indo-China War and another in 1971 during the Indo-Pak war. Both were declared on account of “external aggression”.

The Horrors of Emergency

The Emergency period saw the Indian democracy almost turn into a dictatorship and is often referred to as the “darkest phase of independent India”. Many political leaders of the opposing party were arrested, along with anyone who dared to oppose the government, without any trial. The media was heavily censored; anything and everything that was published had to be approved first by the government. This directly attacked the people’s freedom of speech.

Apart from a few, no other newspaper had the courage to defy this censorship. The Indian Express published a blank first editorial page and the Financial Express published Tagore’s poem “Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high”, in large print. The Emergency was a wake-up call for the press, and they realised how easily their freedom could be taken away. Hence, immediately after the withdrawal of the emergency, the Press Council of India was formed whose main aim was to safeguard the freedom of the press and to maintain and improve journalistic standards.

Cruelty of Mass Sterilization

During this period, Sanjay Gandhi organised a compulsory mass sterilization. If the people refused to obey, they would have to surrender their right to free medical treatments in government hospitals. Slums and low-income housing near the Turkman Gate and Jama Masjid were destroyed, and anyone protesting the demolition of their home was shot by the police or brutally assaulted. Indira Gandhi abused Article #56, and the Constitution was undermined blatantly. The 24th Amendment and the 26th Amendment were passed during this time which allowed the Parliament to dilute the people’s Fundamental Rights and abolished Privy Purse. Along with this, Indira Gandhi amended the Representation of People Act and ensured that the Supreme Court had no other option but to overturn the Allahabad High Court ruling, which upheld that the Parliament had no power to curtail Fundamental Rights.

It is evident that the Emergency of 1971 impacted the Indian society in more ways than one. The Central government abused its power so ruthlessly that even the sacred Constitution and the Supreme Court failed to protect its citizens. It was a reminder as to how effectively and swiftly the freedom of the citizens can be taken away from them.

Indira Gandhi is famously known to say that her father was a statesman, and she is not her father. Find out things about Jawaharlal Nehru which you might not have known before.

Hindi is our National Language?

The misconception over a possible national language of India as considered by many deluded Indians was entrenched further when the Union Minister, M Venkaiah Naidu falsely remarked that the shift to English from our “National Language”- Hindi is bringing about undesired changes in the mind-sets of the Indians. Naidu opines that the nation can only progress when Hindi is endorsed throughout the country and every state mandates learning this language. The statement sparked off major unrest in many parts of South India and Bengaluru where people protested against its imposition.

Map depicting major languages spoken

What does the Law Really Say?

Where Naidu and thousands of other citizens go wrong is clearly elucidated in Clause 1 Article 343 of the Constitution, which very lucidly states that Hindi is one of the official languages along with English. The Constitution also makes provisions for the operation of other languages than Hindi. Article 345 of the Constitution gives authorization for official languages that could be in regulation as per state laws.

The Article decrees – “The Legislature of a State may by law adopt any one or more of the languages in use in the State or Hindi as the language or languages to be used for all or any of the official purposes of that State: Provided that, until the Legislature of the State otherwise provides by law, the English language shall continue to be used for those official purposes within the State for which it was being used immediately before the commencement of this Constitution”.

Fallacious Arguments For Hindi

Another fallacious argument put up by people is based on the poorly drawn fact that most Indians are conversant in Hindi. A census formulated in 2001 reported that only 45% of Indian citizens can comprehend and speak the language while only 25% have it as their mother language. An amendment to the Constitution included the Eighth Schedule, which incorporates as many as 22 official languages in India encompassing – Bengali, Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada, Sindhi, and the like. The BJP added fuel to the fire when it requisitioned Hindi learning in CBSE curriculum throughout the country. What incenses most non-Hindi speakers is the hypocrisy of Indian diversity. Our nation vaunts as being a secular and multidimensional country with varied ethnicity quartering myriad cultures. Being a part of a society as such goes in direct opposition to how the apparent minorities and their interests are treated against a favored majority.

Hindi is not the national language of India, it's the official language

The Central government seems to be a rather faithful compatriot when it comes to suppressing cultural ethnicity thus paving the way for a monochromatic hegemonic nation. A specific language should in no situation be shoved down people’s throats. The government under Modi, however, seems to be blindly indulging in the eventual suppression of regional languages in India. The dominance of Hindi in all spheres seems not only a ludicrous step keeping in mind India’s existential principle of being a conglomeration of separate identities unified despite cultural differences. We can only hope that the current situation does not result in a similar bifurcation that Pakistan suffered during the imposition of Urdu over its citizens.

Saving money sounds difficult? Try these smarter ways meant for modern era

Meet all your financial goals while planning savings in a realistic way!

For once in life, each of us has planned to save money. However, almost every month consists of a festival, a birthday, a wedding, a shopping schedule, cafes, treats, restaurants and so much more! Along with these expenses, we also need to manage our regular bills. In this scenario, a huge amount of money comes to our accounts and slips away easily every month! Thus, saving money is simply a tough job that needs patience, planning, and emotional control.

Saving money

Initial analysis and planning:

Without research and planning, you can’t get the right steps to save money and thus, these are the basic steps:

Identifying the expenses:

To control and manage expenses, it is important to calculate the expenses. How will you be able to save your precious penny until you know where not to lose it? Thus, the first step is to calculate all your expenses. Make a well-researched sheet about all your expenses from the snacks you buy to the bills you pay. This will get you the amount you have been spending on the necessities and luxuries. It’s all about managing the luxuries now for saving money!

Saving money

Prepare the budget:

Preparing a budget will help you manage all the expenses very well. Remember how your mother used to run the house with the fixed amount? It’s all possible while making a budget and assigning money as per priorities. This will help you compare the money you are earning and your expenses.

Implementation of your plan for saving money:

 

Saving money

Decide a cause for saving

You work hard for something which you desperately need and thus, you must also choose a savings cause. There are different purposes for which people save money! People save money to get new vehicles, for a vacation, for a wedding, for healthcare and so much more. Choose the cause for which you need to save money. Decide the amount and also the amount which you can contribute every month or during any span of time for that cause.

Choose the right savings option

The number of banks, mutual funds, and organisations has grown with time. Explore all the options where you can get the best and flexible saving amount, best interests, and easy returns. Research about the best option where you can get maximum benefits as your money is simply worth it!

Saving money

Choose some anonymous methods to save money:

It’s not compulsory to save money in a given pattern or time. Choose some random ways and save money. For instance, if you will save money on the name of ‘flu treatment’, you might not save money as flu may happen or may not. Instead, choose it as ‘medical emergency’ which is quite powerful! Thus, specify the cause when it strong enough to motivate you and generalize it when it’s now that powerful! Also, do not wait for your salaries to save money. Whenever you get more money, save it!

Understand your need for savings and start saving at any point in time with these steps. Grow the enthusiasm for saving money and record how well you did in the past month! This will eventually, develop a habit of making savings!
