Restaurant Review : Taste of India, MP Nagar, Bhopal





On my trip to Bhopal recently, I ended up visiting this restaurant called Taste of India. Looked like a decent place, not really posh but good and cost effective food. Service was good and quick. We ended up having soup, paneer handi and dal tadka. After really long time, I ate good dal tadka in a restaurant. I am really amazed at number of times I have seen restaurants messing up something as simple as dal tadka.
Paneer was good, really spicy. Breads were also good. All in all a really good food that finally costed Rs. 197/- for two people.

Indian Election Results

Finally there seems to be a clear trend at 11AM that UPA (Congress+) seems to be headed to form the next government and Dr. Man Mohan Singh seems poised to form the next government. There seem to be some clear plus points that have come out from these elections.

  • Left parties are out, I think apart from their negative politics in respective states, they might have been better served by taking credit for good things happening in the last five years.

  • I believe it was a good thing for congress to go alone in UP, atleast they provided an alternative to people

  • Nobody believed LKA when he said that there is nothing to give credit to congress for.

I think this would be a good election result for this country.

Varun Gandhi

As I am watching in mumbai airport and listening to the news, it seems Varun Gandhi is in making waves again. He wants to bring back forced sterilization and compulsory military service.
We all know the futility of the first one but the second point is bizzare. If he felt so strongly about that, why did he now bother to join military. He is not too old, he could have joined military before this fulfilling political career.
But then politicians never were known to do sane things.
