More Arty India- Orange Breakfast at Sanskriti

Sanskriti is  a Terracotta Art Village in New Delhi. Part of the Asia Link Art residency programme. They do accept other people too- cost is around $40 a day for a studio and accommodation. I understand artists can stay for 6 weeks. Many big names have stayed here.

I would insist on an Orange breakfast here to match the look. I won’t write more – let the pictures of the place speak for itself

Janmashtmi- Krishna Birthday

Krishna loved curd. To make it at home make a yogurt using cream. It needs careful heating so look out for recipes on the web. Human pyramids form all over the world to break a pot of curd hanging high up.

On this day Ekdashi foods are consumed. So no grains and no spices

The best to offer for his breakfast has to be devotion.
No lust, no anger, no greed.

Singing in raag Malav is also wonderful. Orange is the favoured colour of the day

All this he has created for us.Only the lucky few get it though. Invisible gates/or are they gates of the mind

The event worldwide

and in Sydney Krishna arrives and a boy prepares to climb the human pyramid

Gandhi Kasturba Love

He touched her in public for the first time-allowed in last rites. Gandhi Kasturba. He had first seen her face on their wedding night

As they travelled so much, they carried almonds and grapes to eat. Some say there was also Olive Oil and Lemon juice

I suspect they also loved Rotla ( a millet bread). Keeps for a long time. Mix millet flour and water slowly to a shortcrust pastry consistency. Spread as thinly as possible in an oiled pie dish. Bake in a heated oven 180 degrees for 20 mins.

Gandhi's 6 Leadership rules:Let your team know that you are always learning/ Passionately articulate a clear vision of where you want things to go, then set an example by acting upon that vision/ Use your people skills, not your position/  Listen twice as much as you talk/ Get rid of the serious face/ Make the "doing" of work interesting and meaningful
