Love Legumes - Mochai Pulikuzhambu

'Failures teach you that life's nothing but an already prepared draft.... and whenever you face them, it always seems you've been rehearsing for a play that's never going to be staged.'  But never stop rehearsing until your last breath.... because only doing something will keep you alive. You never know which of the plays would be staged and when.... Always remember that only the rolling stone catches no moss. So move on and on... no matter whatever tries to stop you. 
This mochai pulikuzhambu is a very quick curry you can prepare for your rice. That too, when you have the frozen ones in hand, its all the more easier!!!!!

Healthy Veggie - A Tindora Stir-fry

Tindora is one of the veggies that came onto my plate only after I entered the kitchen. Its popularly known as Kovaikai in my place. Whenever I cook this veggie, I get a comment at home stating that its a 'Goat's Munch'.... meaning it was grazed only by the cattle a few decades earlier until its health benefits were revealed to our race. This humble veggie not only keeps a check on the blood sugar level but also an antioxidant and an immune system modulator.

Life is never fair !!!

IF you can keep your head when all about you 
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools: 

If you can make one heap of all your winnings 
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

- Rudyard Kipling
