The To Do List


Dear Reader,

Wellness You haven't experienced India if you haven't immersed yourself in the cultural chaos of here festivals. While the festival of lights Diwali and colurs (Holi) are known throughout the world, there are umpteen regional festivals that bring out the true diversity and cultural roots of this country. This issue, we bring you a select few of the summer festivals that will happen across the length and breadth of the city. Take your pick, get on to the streets and experience India at her festive best. While at it, there's one thing that you just cannot forget- hydrate yourself. We have some typical Indian thirst quenchers that you can easily conjure in our kitchen. Or just gulp some awesome coconut water in all its goodness. While our culture page goes back in a timelesstradition of offering statues to Gods, the Big Bite takes you to the latest and hottest food joint in town. Travel, click, eat and enjoy the madness of May! Rajsuresh Publisher

Celebration & Chaos Think Indian festivals, one can't help but think about Diwali and Holi. But ifyou are looking to soak into local culture, we suggest that you try one of these summer festivals, celebrated across India, by various religions and regions.

Chitthirai Thiruvizha



mb 1


Known to be a longest festival world over, the celebrations for Chitthirai Thiruvizha begin in end of April and last for a month, with the first 15 days dedicated to the Diety of Madurai Meenakshi Amman and the other 15 to Alagar (a form of Lord Vishnu). The festival begins with a Kodi Yetram (flag hoisting by the chief priest of Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple), and continues with a series of celebrations such as the coronation of Meenakshi as the Queen of the Pandya Kingdom in Madurai, her encounter with Lord Shiva in Kailaasam, her eventual marriage

with the Lord, the Ther Thiruvizha, where they meet the people of the land following their wedding, and the welcoming of Lord Alagar to the ceremony. During this festival, one can witness the Gods carried across the town of Madurai in various palanquins and crowds throng to seek the blessing of the Divine. Where:Madurai. Thinks to do: Apartfrom experiencing the exhilaratingfestive atmosphere, one can get a true taste of South India here. Kari Dosa (meat dosa) and jigarthanda (native beverage made using almond, milk) are must-tries.

Situated in the posh pockets of Nungambakkam, Nasi and Mee at ~ h a d e rNawaz khan road could be mistaken for a high end modular kitchen lifestyle store. The ambiance inside is without frills and fuss but very inviting and enticing to look at. My encounter with the food began with a clear Chicken Winter Melon Soup served in black bowls which further enhanced the clarity and transparency of the broth. The mushrooms and the chicken itself were appetizing and the melon only complemented it. The Prawn HarGow dumplings were typically Chinese and had a tinge of sweetness which was refreshingly dif-

The grills came along with much fanfare and the Malaysian Chicken Satay looked spicy - yet had a tinge of sweetness on account of the generous mix of shallots. The Samba1 Prawns looked devilishly delicious what with its fiery red exterior served in a skewer. A bite into this will have its ocean bed flavours explode in your mouth The main course comprised of the creamy Prawn Laksa Curry, the mouthwatering Chicken Rendang, the legendary chicken and prawn Pad Thai all served with Jasmine Rice from Thailand. For all seafood lovers like me, the the Cantonese Style steamed fish is a sure knockout ! A spoonful of the broth, which is rich in ocean flavor, spiced with ginger and chilly, is beyond the realm of expectations. The fish is soft , succulently steamed and the soy flavours gives it a touch of supreme royalty. This culinary experience was akin to having taken a tour to the south Asian countries and when the nectarous Fried Ice Cream was served, you know you have reached the final destination ! '
