South Indian coffee is brewed with a metal device that resembles two cylindrical cups, one of which has a pierced bottom that nests into the top of the "tumbler" cup, leaving ample room underneath to receive the brewed coffee. The upper cup has two removable parts: a pierced pressing disc with a central stem handle, and a covering lid.The upper cup is loaded with fresh ground coffee mixed with chicory (~2 tablespooons of mixture per serving). The grounds are gently compressed with the stemmed disc into a uniform layer across the cup's pierced bottom. With the press disc left in place, the upper cup is nested into the top of the tumbler and boiling water is poured inside. The lid is placed on top, and the device is left to slowly drip the brewed coffee into the bottom. The chicory sort of holds on to the hot water a little longer, letting the water extract more flavor from the coffee powder. This makes the decoction a lot stronger as compared the typical western drip coffee, the decoction is so strong that you'd need only 2-3 tea spoonfuls of it to flavor a 150ml milk. Where as the western drip coffee is quite watery to taste.

It was a long time I played with new technology and changed any the way the this blog looks to you. Liked few themes and tried to put them in my own taste before I found the current one. But some how those themes really did not looks so cool to and attractive to me at the end. So I went with the current one and did not did not did much changes.
I was looking for a widget on on the sidebar for photo stream (the most used on the net is the flickr one). I am not very happy with their account policy so do have a a pro account. as i was looking around I found that the coolest solution for my need. I used Coolaris with Media RSS to stream photo on the sidebar. Gallery2 does not come with Media RSS by default but as I am running Gallery3 Beta for a while I am using the same. This means I did changes any major scripts and got this cool widget.
At last I got sifr for titles does not they looks right ?

Hello everyone, happy festivity it is time of celebration in India specially north and east where it is NavaRatri in North and Durga Puja in East. Pamela and Arush left on Sunday for Durg. It will be almost after 8 years Pamela will be at her mother house to celebrate Durga Puja. For Bengali's it is the most special occasion in the whole calender. According to mythological believe Goddess Durga is a daughter of every Bengali and she visit her parents with her four children.
For me life had been very hectic at work in last months after coming back from Singapore. At times I felt new heights of anxiety and pressure which i have not experienced yet. In way it was a good learning but I questioned myself do I have the material enough to get me to the of the leader. Well may be I am reading too many Harvard Business Reviews. I am really looking forward a great ending of this course now. Wish I could plan for our next vacation; since March when we did not went out Bangalore together. I am already dreaming for Andaman
I am counting my days for the upcoming camping trip that I am supposed to take on 1st week of October. I got all my camping grear out of various boxes which have not seen any action in last 5 years after I left Sunny California.
Pamela has kept Aarush's picture website update. She is really great as she always updates that twice a weeks as soon she gets her chance to sit down with computer. But really at times I feel this blog space is not getting enough updates it should get. Wish we both could do the same with the blog; I should write soon after coming back from the camping trip.
