Please bear with me. :-)
Have you ever wondered why some people dislike you irrespective of your efforts to be nice to them ?
I recommend a special method of cleaning for Mushrooms.
- Wash mushrooms under running water, carefully,
not allowing them to disintegrate.
- Now coat mushrooms with salt,
turmeric and all purpose flour. Keep aside for 5 minutes. Wash them with
fresh water and Voilà, there you are! Mushrooms are ready to go into any gravy.

Sharing some pictures...
Breath taking panorama with the divine presence of Buddha .The giant Tian Tan Buddha statue covered with mist.
Lantau Island in Hong Kong is a must visit place for a serene and spiritual experience.
This majestic statue symbolizes the stability of Hong Kong, prosperity of China and peace on earth.
Below the Big Buddha statue , there is Po Lin monastery main temple.
Tian Tan Buddha, a giant Buddha statue completed in 1993, is an extension of the monastery.
Visiting the temple was an intriguing experience . The main temple houses three bronze statues of the Buddha – representing his past, present and future lives – as well as many Buddhist scriptures.
Nature was at it's best with heavy showers .What more can one ask for?
The place displayed a unique tranquility as the majestic Buddha statue slowly got covered by thick mist . It was one of my life's memorable moments.

We all believe that India has got a reformist with Mr.Narendra Modi (NaMo) who can fulfill India’s yearning for economic and social development for the last 67 years.
My indication is towards the fact that many "Prophets" claim: India would be the superpower by the end of Kaliyuga.
According To Mahabharata—Duties of an ideal king
- Protection of the subjects and ensuring their happiness is the first and foremost duty of the king.·
- The happiness of their subjects, observance of truth, and sincerity of behavior are the eternal duty of kings
- Make peace with those foes with whom (according to the ordinance) peace should be made, and wage war with them with whom war should be waged.
- He should feed those that have not been fed, and inquire after those that have been fed.
- Taking the wealth of those that are not righteous he should give it unto them that are righteous. ( NaMo’s investment policy)

Eat Pray Love (2010)
I always felt out of place with the world around me. I seek something always. I am restless, because I feel I cannot waste my time. I am here to do something, and that “something” needs preparation; even though I have no idea what that “something” is! Thus I started learning new things, each day. Started writing down my thoughts. It was difficult for me in the beginning, as I started this exercise lately in my life. I started enjoying solitude, that I always did though,but now more effectively. At the end of the day, I ask myself, what new knowledge I've earned today. I became a more positive person .I deliberately overlooked the negativity around me; those eyes of jealousy and contempt. Yes, arrogance from people was always a part of life, that I have learned to overlook beautifully.
