Monsoon Magic: #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Monsoon Magic


Monsoon Magic -Cycles-Sunrise
Back on the saddle this monsoon.


The glistening rocks on the backdrop of Mangar Baani trail and Aravalli hills. Can any of you identify the rocks?


Awe-inspired by the morning sunrise skies. Monsoon beckons. And here is a humour piece I wrote inspired by rains, a few monsoons back. And if you scroll down a surprise awaits you. Go ahead!


The wait is over! I have a brand new badge. Scroll down after this series  Some of you have already seen it, right? And given your kind inputs. Gratitude my friends.<3 
Bengali soul food-Khichari and Pumpkin flower fry (fritters)
Monsoons are a perfect time for this one pot lentil, rice and veggie meal with dollops of ghee (clarified butter) that I dig the most. We call it Khichuri accompanied with Pumpkin flower pakoras (fritters). Yum! This is my lunch also today but accompanied with Bitter gourd leaf fritters and pumpkin fitters-not the flowers!


Elephant Foot plant
We managed to grow Ole or Elephant Foot (a huge tuber) which makes for healthy and tasty vegetables with our meals and is cooked in mustard oil. I think I’m hungry this #WW, as all I can think of is food!

  1. When was this from? I just found it & I cannot get in cuz it’s over… I’m so sad. I’ll figure your blog out (days/times etc.) if it’s the last thing I do. grrrrrrrrrrrrr You write so beautifully and I’m in love with all the beautiful pictures, plants, beauty and all the beautiful colors. Well, my husband and I will be leaving for a few days to visit my step-brother & his wife in Michigan on Wednesday for a few days that’s why I was trying to get over here early. I just wanted to tell you so you won’t think I was ignoring you at all. I miss you dear one. I hope to talk to you soon. I’ve been doing my cleaning ahead of time so I’m kinda of tired, but I didn’t want to hit the pillow until I told you. Sending many hugs… and love…. Marie

  2. Monsoon = Magic for sure. Everything seems so clean, fresh and abuzz with life. The photos spell joy
    Khichdi I guess is a comfort food for most of us Indians right Did you visit Mangar Bani sometime recently?

    The logo is bright and vibrant

    Happy Weekend Natasha!

  3. There is an upside to monsoons with the awakening of nature. Your photos are awesome, as always.
    The rocks look like some sort of slate. They make a beautiful background 🙂

    How great to see you at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week!! Thanks for linking.

  4. Beautiful as always, dear Natasha and we love the new badge it’s full of wisdom as you are ♥ We skipped this week, as we have a lot of sunshine coming this week and next week. Summer’s back 😀 Pawkisses for a wonderful week ahead and have fun biking, Granny and Grandpaw like it too, while I take care of my garden 😀 ♥

  5. I love the rain – not for to much time (a month, every day, for example, not).
    And now, I’m hungry! 🙂
    I can’t identify the rocks.
    I really like your… story with K.J. 🙂
    Happy WW, dear Natasha! ❤️

  6. Thank you for the beautiful images and the inspiration in the kitchen.
    I am a big fan of ghee. I did it and was a very interesting experience! 🙂
    Happy WW, dear Natasha! Wishing you a beautiful week!

  7. I really enjoyed your photos and especially your “vision” which had me riding right along with your until I woke up and realized you had trapped me in all the excitement. We had a monsoon season when we lived in New Mexico, but living a mile or more high there was no comparison with your experience.

  8. My first memories of Khichdi was while I was sailing in a ship. Whenever it rolled, we were given Khichdi so that our seasickness will be less. Well at least its better in your case. Some hot khichdi during the monsoons sounds like a great idea .
