The bond of a brother and sister is something that cannot be put into words or boundaries, every relationship comes with different experiences, different fights, different expectations, but there are some things which are common in every relationship, and makes each one of them so special.

  1. Hiding her stuff

    A habit of every typical brother, be it her hairbrush, cell phone, favorite dress, he loves to hide it and have a good laugh while looking at her desperately looking for it.

    bro sis.

2. Insulting Facebook posts

Every time you log in and see yourself tagged in a post by him/her, there is a little fear inside ! You open it and there it is, a public insult 😀

'Does this mean I have to share my pocket money?'

5. Whatsapp fights

In the new digital world, you find yourselves sitting in different rooms in the same house and fighting over the Whatsapp chat !

To go with AFP Story 'US IT-Takeover-Facebook-WhatsApp-Internet', FOCUS by David Watkins  (FILES) This file picture taken on February 20, 2014 shows the Facebook and WhatsApp applications' icons displayed on a smartphone in Rome. Facebook's stunning USD 19 billion deal for messaging service WhatsApp places the social network in an arena where competition is fierce, particularly in Asia, where fast-growing chat rivals dominate their home markets.

6. Getting each other scolded by parents

Purposely revealing each other’s secrets and naughtily getting your sibling scolded by parents and having that last laugh 😀

But at the EOD, you protect each other in every crisis, can’t hear any outsider say anything against your sibling, can do anything for them and believe it or not, they will always be your best friend 🙂

Happy Rakhi !








The Other Side Of Social Media

Be it watching a movie with friends, going on holidays, expressing our opinions on political issues, leg pulling, everything is now done and shared openly on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. We love to do this, even if it gives FOMO sometimes, even if it has suddenly woken up the travelers in us, we simply love this ‘social’ life. But have you met the other side of Social media ? The darker side? Let’s know the rules of the darker side of social media, which is trending more these days.

  1. Post something however irrational or illogical it is.
  2. Ensure that “right set of people RT or share it”
  3. Issue few supposedly strong statements or opinions.
  4. Get the media and other digital sites to publish getting influenced by the other social media sites rather than the actual source.
  5. Bask in the glory on the cost of someone else’s misery
    Let’s talk in examples.
    Instance # 1
    Rohtak Sisters beat up a guy in bus accusing them for molestation. As it turned out they were just doing it to gain attention.


    Instance #2

    Jasleen Kaur claims that she was molested by a guy on Bullet on a red light
    The reality is that she was just trying to create a controversy.

Although she posted this later.

Instance #3

Famous Bollywood director Anurag Basu posts on his Instagram that he was beaten up by an MMS activist in a brawl. All the famous media sites publish the news immediately. He posts on his FB stating that this was a social message he was trying to bring into the attention as to how irresponsible today’s media is that they publish any thing without cross verification.

With great authority, comes great responsibility. With the increasing freedom and authority that social media is gaining over other media, isn’t it time that also adopt the responsibility that comes along?


Memories In The Box

world photography day

Going down the memory lane
When we walked with a camera in hand
It was quite a deal to point and shoot
While the ones in the pictures would hail and hoot


From those walks to the studio
And the sweet wait thereafter
To inserting the pen drive
With an instant roar of laughter


From touching those rough and smooth edges
Saving that negative reel
To zooming in the screen
And soak in the nostalgic wheel

Altes fotoalbum

From those long sealed closets
When we pull out those albums
Our hearts smile through the eyes
Pages keep turning
And all we wish
Is that they never ever end

A few years down the line
When we find ourselves stalking the timeline
Of the ones we love
And the ones we lost
On that ambiguous day
What will still thrive
Are these timeless memories
Fervent and naïve 🙂

7 Traditional Kitchen Appliances That Take You On A Nostalgic Journey

Indian recipes have a worldwide presence. Its distinctive aroma and tangy taste have found a global following. Have you ever thought that prior to the popularization of electric appliances in Indian kitchen which appliances were used by the Home makers?

Jaipur Beat takes you down the memory lane to the time where our grannies used to make mouth watering succulent gastronomical dishes, without the help of any electrical appliance.

Old Kitchen

  1. Stone Mortar:

An ancient Indian predecessor to modern day grinder. A hollowed structure from within in which a stone is used to pound and later fine grind the material.  This was specially used to makedosa orrava idli mix batter. Unlike today’s mixie the process to grind with this primitive tool was lengthy and laborious too. Needless to say, it is very rare nowadays to see such a spectacle.

  1. Sil Batta

This grinding stone was used in a large number of Indian households. It is known as “Sil-Batta” in Hindi with Sil referring to flat stone and Batta referring to a cylindrical grinding stone. This grinding stone was primarily used to prepare green chutney of coriander or mint, or to mix dry spices used for making Indian curry. On one hand it is a good form of exercise for the arms, and secondly, it imparts the authentic taste to the freshly ground spices which in no way can be copied by any other kitchen aid.
But with the passage of time it has been replaced with the electric grinder/mixer  for the convenience and to save time as well.

Sil Batta

  1. Wooden Ice cream maker:

When Ice cream parlors were not a common thing even then our mother used to serve home made Ice creams. We are not talking about fridge here, but ice creams made from traditional wooden ice cream maker. The making of ice cream in itself was the celebration where every member was involved as the duty was assigned from the youngest to the eldest member to keep rotating the handle for churning. It definitely involves planning to organize the ingredients like rock salt, ice and making a mixture of milk. Not only this once it is ready it has to be consumed at the earliest. So at times you can’t even wait for the dinner to be served.

  1. Brass Utensils:

Though modern science now reluctantly approves of cooking in brass utensils, but our forefathers knew about them and propagated their use. The modern day cooking utensils with chemical coating have failed to match the taste these age old utensils used to provide.Since brass being an alloy of copper and zinc was not considered safe for cooking and keeping cooked stuff, a coat of lead was provided in the interiors of these utensil with kalai a shining silvery metal. Getting “kalai” done on utensils was a ritual carried after every six months. It was not uncommon to hear the loud voice from Kalai Wala  passing by on the road and inviting to get the kalai done on utensils.Thanks to pressure cooker, steel and other cookware to make this everyday’s sight a rare one now 😦

Brass Utensils
Brass Utensils
  1. Hamam Dasta:

This appliance  very similar to Stone Mortar mentioned earlier is a competitor to the contemporary dry grinder. Made of metal, generally, cast Iron or brass this is used to grind the dry spices used in Indian cooking. As it is made up of metal it takes lots of effort to use this. No wonder, our grandmothers who worked endlessly in the kitchen were far stronger and powerful than us.


  1. Kanse Ke Bartan


An alloy very healthful was used by our ancestors to make utensils specially for serving food. A healthier option to melamine and acrylic crockery used these days . This is the reason why the royals of Rajasthan extensively used these utensils for serving food.

  1. Thali:

Silver thali


Indians had a tradition to have multi-course meal, but in a different manner. Instead of dishes served in a phased manner they had all of them served in one big platter with small bowls used to keep the items of the day’s menu. This system of serving the food is known as ‘Thali’. Apart, from daily use, Indian household uses thali made of Silver in honor of the guest and to flaunt their opulence.

Though these appliances have lost the race of extinction against modern ones, their relevance will remain for the people who have taste bud for traditional taste.
