Stuffed Capsicums (Bell Pepper) / Bharwan Shimla Mirch

This Bharvan Shimla Mirch ki Sabji (Stuffed Capsicums/Bell Pepper) is a great dish to cook during parties, considering that once all the preparations are done, the capsicums are stuffed and placed on baking tray in oven, all you have to do is bake them for 10 minutes while you are entertaining guests, and voila – the bharwan shimla mirch is served.  Because this dish tends to be on the dry side, I would prefer to serve it as an appetizer, or with another gravy/curry on the side.

Humor - English as Official Language

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as 'Euro-English'.

In the first year, 's' will replace the soft 'c'.  Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy.  The hard 'c' will be dropped in favour of 'k'.  This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.  There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome 'ph' will be replaced with 'f'.  This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

Poetry: Teardrops in this Rain

Was feeling really low one day ... and then wrote this when I couldn't hold the feelings inside anymore...


Teardrops in this Rain...

I see the rain falling down as I fall down on my knee,
And I wonder if just now God cried along with me.
‘Coz I know it hurts Him if His children are in pain;
And I wonder if He is expressing by teardrops in this rain.

Tell me what you want God, tell me about your plans,
I’ll try my best to change myself, just give me one more chance.
Tell me God if my prayers are reaching you or are in vain;
‘Coz I am sending you my apologies through teardrops in this rain.

I’m sorry for everything God, I request you to forgive me,
Don’t test me more, not any more; I’m already lost in this sea.
I’ve been feeling so suffocated I don’t know if I’m still sane;
‘Coz I’m sitting here and talking to my teardrops in this rain.

I see the clear sky God and wonder when you’ll do that to my soul,
Bring out the best in me God and tell me what should be my goal.
You know all the thoughts running in my mind, my heart, and my brain;
You know the wound, the reason, and the cure for teardrops in this rain.

I’ll keep my word, I’ll prove myself, I’ll forever be sincere,
All you have to do is promise me God that you’ll always be near.
I am searching for you God from behind my window pane;
‘Coz I don’t know if you’re able to see my teardrops in this rain . . .

Pass The Parcel Game Forfeit Ideas

(Image from MS Clip Art)


While hunting for a list of forfeits to play Pass The Parcel with my group of friends, whenever I came across a good one in the past years, I added to my list and finally have a good enough number and variety of fun punishments to keep the game interesting.

This is a great game when having an afternoon tea-party, evening dinner get-together with family, children's birthday party, at kitty party, or a weekend picnic with friends and family (especially since these are decent penalties).
