Scrumptious Sundays!

Mutton pulao, salad, boondi raita!

Being a foodie, cooking and trying out different recipes, excite me! Sundays have a special place in my heart, as we all are chilled out and enjoy as a family. In the above image, is mutton pulao, onion and tomato salad accompanied with boondi raita (which is my favourite). Do let me know, if you want me to post recipes as well. Will be more than happy to share!

While I enjoy my lipsmacking food with my beautiful family, I hope you all are having a great Sunday too! Keep smiling! Have fun.


Crevices of my age

My soul breathes
a childish hue,
but veins
under this skin
exhales pale and blue,

my heart’s beat
warmed with young heat,
but my love, burnt and bitter
which was once
oh so sweet!

and still I hear,
the music is on,
and I can feel the rhythm
in these fragile bones,

so, shall I dance my heart out
or shall I be scared,
to be fallen and caged
into the crevices of my age?

I am an old soul but with a young heart. I am not able to comprehend, when people say- one should “age gracefully” or “act your age”.

What if, if one doesn’t relate to the number of years, shown on the calendar.

I read somewhere, we are a mix, of all the ages that we have crossed.

As we still have that 5 year old child, that 14 year old teenager, that 25 year old excited young adult, within us.

Only certain circumstances or few intimate relationships can bring them out.

But do we have to truly depend on that?

Sometimes we have to shun what society believes, and make our own circumstance and be our own intimate friend. No matter how different that makes us!

What truly matters is that, we keep dancing to the young rythm of our heart and giggle like that child in our soul.

As Robert Frost said

“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.” Robert Frost

The beautiful aspect of aging is we become more aware, conscious and wiser as we grow into the afternoon.

( I hope we truly do )

So dance your heart out. Don’t be scared to fall, or to be caged into the crevices of your age.




Hello! I am Rupa.
As the great poet Rumi said, “What you seek is seeking you”, well I am seeking light, love, and some inspiration to live the best version of my life. Pans and Proses is a step toward this journey. I hope to meet you all, along the way through food recipes, art, poems, travel diaries, fitness goals , and many life’s delightful and some not-so-delightful but learning experiences.

In whatever we do, we all need a little inspiration, a few bits of advice, few words of wisdom or just a guide to navigate through our life. Pans and Proses is a platform where you can find just that!
Like a close friend.

The sole purpose of this blog is to share stories, so you can relate to them and never feel alone and lost. To know that there are many others, who are like us, dealing with the same issues, going through the same problems, trying to find solutions.

As it is said by  Vera Nazarian, in The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration  “Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing others to take yours.” Hope we reach out to each other, always and forever.

Thank you for visiting.

Love and light to all!

Warm regards

Light up your heart and the world lights up around you !
