Mumbai Weekend Snapshot by Krrish - 2

My favourite dish is Pav Bhaji.
If mummy makes pav bhaji everyday, I'll be very happy.
The pav bhaji at Juhu beach also tastes very good. It is a must try, atleast once. We ate pav bhaji at this stall last weekend, and I watched this uncle make pav bhaji.
It is mouth-watering and appetizing to watch the 'bhaji' which is a mashed mixture of veggies cooked in butter and spices, being made on this huge 'tava' and then the 'pav' fried in spice and butter. Yummy!

Have a fun-filled yummy weekend!

Weekend in Black and White 2014 : 2

Children playing after school is always a pleasant sight. It's their own way to unwind, destress and relax after school hours, which are sometimes really stressful.

Skywatch Friday 2014 - 2 : Towers of Doom

Electromagnetic radiation from mobile phone towers installed on tops of residential buildings can pose a major health hazard for residents living within 300 m range, especially pregnant women and children and those living in the top floors of the building.
The residents show symptoms like memory loss, lack of concentration, headache, mood swings and hormonal imbalance. They also have greater risk of developing cancer. The radiation causes insects, bees, butterflies, sparrows and pigeons in the vicinity to disappear.

Is it ignorance of the consequences, or greed for money that the towers end up getting installed on so many residential buildings?
Is there a 'Tower of Doom' in your area?
