Birla Modern Art Gallery & Science Museum

Museums and art galleries are not everyone’s cup of tea. Even if I did know this fact, it became painfully clear while I was at the Birla Modern Art Gallery, Hyderabad. People were just walking by the paintings like they were walking in the park. Not bothering to look at the finer details of the…

Roof Garden – January 2023

Quick update on my previous post of Roof Garden (link here:https://saudhaminimylaram.in/2022/07/04/roof-garden/) – I had a very successful season of Fenugreek leaves. And seeds at the end of the season. Below are seeds from early in the season. It was a good season for kitchen garden because of the rains. Especially, coriander! My new batch of…

Sankranti Muggulu 2023

Here are my this year’s Sankranti Muggulu. I have tried new ratham muggulu this year. One I am very happy with! The other, I am still deciding how I am feeling about it. On the bright side, it does look like a miniature ratham. So I am taking that as a win.

Katte Pongali

I used to make katte pongali most Fridays back in 2015 for Santoshi mata pooja. This dish met the specific requirement of Santoshi Mata pooja of not having tangy ingredients in it. I recently came across an Instagram video of Katte Pongali, bringing back old memories of relishing this dish. I don’t remember why I…

Tulasi Mala

Having a Roof Garden has its advantages and disadvantages 😐 The only reason I started roof gardening was to grow vegetables and they need lot of sunlight. I was even successful with Tomatoes. They were a huge hit! Here are the links for the article: https://saudhaminimylaram.in/2021/09/19/how-to-grow-organic-tomatoes-at-home-gardening/, https://saudhaminimylaram.in/2022/03/21/my-garden-in-spring-2022/ After the harvest, the pots (soil mainly) needed…

HR Conferences – My Experience and Take Aways

We meet different kinds of people at our workplace: each with their own positives and negatives. Some inspire us by leveraging their negatives and turning them to use in a productive way. Meeting thought leaders was no different during the in-person conference I attended the week before and the SHRM India conference I got the…

Satyanarayana Swamy Vratam

Many south Indians celebrate Kartika Pournami by performing Satyanarayana Swamy Vratam. After a long gap of 10 years, we resumed this tradition back in 2020. So, this post is a “very late post”! For us this tradition started with our paternal grandparents before my father was born. They even named my father after this god…
