Sankranti 2018

My mom has been making “Kalagoora Gampa Koora” curry every Sankranti for 4 decades of my memory.  Loads of this curry along with appams used to get shipped to our roof top, to be served to us brothers, cousins, our friends, neighbours and extended family, while most of us are flying kites and competing with everyone in neighborhood amidst loud music.

Though fun of flying kites have almost gone done by 95%, but the Pongal delicacies continue in our family kitcen.  Radhika made this Sankranti delicacy (thanks to KT from Khandaan) this morning in her kitchen in just about 30 minutes using her trademark organic methods.  Much late in my childhood I learned the real meaning of the curry, and why is it called by that name.   Like the name indicates, curry has all possible season’s fresh greens and vegetables.

Also, included in the blog are pics from our visit to Nirvana Farm House outside Hyderabad, where annual Sankranti Celebration are conducted a week ahead of the actual event. Also includes a heart-warming clip of Sunny’s Birthday event.

Sankranti @ Farm House

Radhika and I noticed Hyderabad ‘s newest underpass tunnel road, designed to ease the traffic around Ayyappa Society Road junction few days ago, but could not figure out the entry point, during our drive for errands. Today, we consciously took the underpass from the road opp. Shilparamam, while coming from Nirvana Farm House, to check out the road which is painted with colorful mural design. Radhika was driving the car, so I captured this bumpy 40 second clip. Next time, I will click with a gimbal.
