Today is a special day for us at India. Not only is it Teacher’s day, a day celebrated in the honor of gurus or teachers but its also the birthday of my favorite God. I belong to a family of educationists. Both my parents are professors, and as long as I can remember this day used to be special for us…and them. I used to perform Odissi or some other dance for the teachers at my school, usually take part in a skit too and the function at school would end with loads of fun, applause and food!! Yup.. we got snacks..and chocolates!! Back home,our house would be overflowing with bouquets of various colors. In fact I can vividly recall the overflowing dining table, the centre table,end tables, side tables all filled with flowers. And where the sweet mesmerizing fragrance of flowers ended,the intoxicating aroma of food started!! Their students would come to our home laden with mithais, chocolates,Biriyani, some would get home cooked prawn curry, some thrill my dad with live blue crabs, there would be atleast 5 cakes by evenings and I cant count the number of pens or leather diaries they received. It was all a mark of the extreme love, respect and affection their students had for my parents…a mark of how much my parents had touched the lives of these kids. It used to be a day worth remembering.


But along with Teachers day, its also an Indian festival today. Janmashtami, a day we celebrate the birthday of Lord Krishna, he of the Iskcon fame. The one and only child God, that loving mischievous  Bal Gopal, he whose feet are like the lotus flower and eyes like endless oceans..he of the knowledge of the seven vedas and a heart brimming with love, he the supporter of all things good, the foremost lover of everyone’s imagination..the clandestine dancer…the director of hypnotizing flute tunes,its HIS bday!! And how can we not celebrate it?? 

If you haven’t checked my Meetha Pulao/Zarda recipe yet, I suggest you quickly do so!! Its pretty fab and i have been eating it for the last 30 yrs 😉

I also made some delicious Baked gur rasgulla for my in laws who are visiting us. Its a specialty of my home town and I kind of wanted to woo them 😉
