Our guardian angels~ Mothers ! Spring Onion, Tomatoes and Gram flour Noodles curry

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,
"O Maa Tuje Salaam".......Salute to the  Mother Nature, salute to the Mother India, Salute to My late Mum and My late MIL...UK is observing Mother's day today !! Wishing every mother's a very happy Mother's day...I am sure you all are having a fabulous day today with kids, grand kids and maybe great grand kids...!!

God took the fragrance of a flower...
The majesty of a tree...
The gentleness of morning dew...
The calm of a quiet sea...
The beauty of the twilight hour...
The soul of a starry night...
The laughter of a rippling brook...
The grace of a bird in flight...
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when his masterpiece was through
He called it simply - Mother.
- Herbert Farnham

What a marvellous day I  had today...!!  I was awaken by my two adorable kids with their hugs and kisses...also giving me the beautiful hand crafted Mother's day card. Surprise came to me that my kids said get ready quickly we are taking you for a special treat ! I was taken to central London, I was taken back by a massive surprise which the kids had set up for me...:-) It was the ultimate relaxation experience, floating on the surface of the water, buoyed by salts. Escaping gravity, temperature,touch, sight and sound, your physical and mental energy is conserved and directed into revitalising you. A Great memorable experience I am touched by my kids thoughtful gestures and love !!

After coming home I witnessed India's win against Pakistan in Asia cup..:-) yes, no matter what India always stays on top....well done team India and our heartiest congrats to Virat Kohli for showing his Virat (Gigantic ) Roop... All the best Team India !!
