For 26 years I have been doing what I want to. I know I have been lucky. I don't beat around the bush. Not too much into networking. Hate those who push connections over merit. Love traveling. Quality or Quantity still puzzle me at times. Haven't turned into anything other than being me, neither have an intent to. Prefer living in present or future, but a lifelong student of history. A father. A husband. A brother. A friend. A colleague. An Indian. A Sikh. A Punjabi And above all a Dilli-walah.

Why did Pulwama happen? Where is our intelligence? Where is our counter intelligence? We always talk about our people in Pakistan’s administration and defense forces, where were they? Busy watching Uri or Raazi and congratulating themselves? Yesterday we were once again exposed as a nation. Our children and the world saw us as a banana republic and a sleeping duck where a Pulwama can happen. Sad and unacceptable. Lot of tweets and posts are saying [...]Read More

Keema Kaleji With Runny Yolks – Simply Yum!

Keema Kaleji is an all time favorite with goat meat / mutton eating Punjabis. It is not for calorie watchers by any yardstick. It has butter, it has milk, it has meat and it has eggs. When all of these do a meet-up in a pan, magic happens. Keema, of course is minced goat meat and Kaleji is the liver of goat, sounds gross but it is really about taste, right? Keema Kaleji needs patience and [...]Read More
