A Cafe, A Live Kitchen And A Mall. And It’s Vegetarian

The new Namdhari’s which has come up near to where we stay in Jayanagar, Bangalore is good in many ways. It’s well stocked with healthy food, there’s a live kitchen and the cafe in the Lanai (varandha) is European in looks.

The huge brick oven for the live pizza in the centre of the kitchen is imposing and is a treat to the eye. There’s a Thai/ Chinese place, the popular kulcha, aloo poratta, sandwiches, croissants, coffee all are deliciously savoured by the public.

You can have take aways, but better enjoy it hot with friends in the outdoor cafe set up which resembles a restaurant street in Europe.

A fab place to have a quiet breakfast, brunch or dinner time outing with friends.

What if it’s all vegetarian, after all the ‘changing games’ recommends plant based protein for super performance.

We Have a Role to Play

World is in turmoil, mostly due to fear! Fear of the virus that’s spreading. And once in fear mode, more fear comes in, like melting economy, dangerous global warming etc etc.

The real danger is continued spread of the fear. The virus, though very dangerous is not taking lives in a big way. Effective precautions are seen to contain it’s spread. However the ‘hope’ is not seen to be encouraged.

People in the know are working hard on solutions to the problem. Luckily, there’s no significant blaming game. A lot of work is coordinated.

This is the time, we as ordinary people, are to play a role. First and foremost, don’t be instruments in spreading a rumour. There are experts to suggest the does and donts.

Social media is a weapon. It’s a weapon capable of spreading despair and rumours. It’s also an instrument to spread hope and love.

Let’s be instruments for spreading hope and love. People are getting isolated/ quarantined for common good. It’s not easy to lead the isolated life. If we know someone who’s quarantined or isolated for monitoring, why not be in touch with him on social media.

Let’s not discuss despair. Talk about the friendship, of the brave things when we were together in school, work or in groups. Better, chart out plans for a get together, picnic or some such nice things after the turmoil is over.

Greet good mornings, talk through the day. Do it individually rather than in groups. Whatsapp is a powerful tool, and address people individually and personally, taking the whatsapp numbers from group.

An important point to remember is that those who are willing to be in isolation is doing it for others/ us also. They are angels of goodwill.

Nobody should feel alone. We are all together. After all, what are friends for!

We Have a Role to Play

Virtual Friends in Focus. Like Never Before!

There’s no denying the fact that the best way to enjoy and cherish friendship is with direct interaction. In fact virtual connections are being called the bane of this era.

Perhaps it’s now, that the importance of virtual connections and interactions are much in focus in a positive way.

Personally I am a proponent of virtual connections and social media interactions. Perhaps it removes many barriers in physical interactions like logistics, time and availability.

Now, why virtual connections are in focus! We are in one of the most difficult phases of our lives. The Corona virus has made the world to plunge into an atmosphere of fear. People are afraid of each other, afraid of inadvertently contracting the virus or passing it on to loved ones.

Most social interactions are being reviewed! Sports and entertainment cancelled, travel in jeopardy and the world is afraid and lonely.

Here’s where the virtual world has a role. Interact and support our dear ones. Let it be known that nobody is alone. Love and affection can cure anything. The virus, economic downturn all are temporary.

The opportunity comes with huge responsibility. Don’t ever spread rumours. The social media is for sharing love and friendship and not to frighten.

Just talk to friends, let them know that we’re in it together. That we will make a better world.

Communicate and let it be known that we do care.

Virtual Friends in Focus. Like Never Before!
