Rocky and Mayur have ventured out to explore food from all parts of India and curate videos on Askme.com.

I had visited Rayalaseema Ruchulu in Hyderabad in 2009 and was bowled over by their delicacies though I was a little taken aback by their spiciness.

Bengali Food Festival at The Eatery, Four Points by Sheraton Bengaluru

Recently I was invited to the “Too Maach!” Bengali Food Festival at the hub of great food in Whitefield, Bangalore – Four Points by Sheraton Bengaluru. As I’m a lover of Bengali food, I grabbed this opportunity to be one of the select few to try out the delicacies!   The decor was excellent and reminded me of the hospitality of the East Indian folks specially Bengalis and Oriyas. The hospitality of Four Points by Sheraton Whitefield Bengaluru is also very good which adds to the flavor of the entire event! We started with a Panipuri (or Puchka in Bengali)

Bangalore’s Winter- A Photoblog – 2

The first part of this photoblog with some really good misty pictures of an early morning in Bangalore can be found here. Overnight journey, sleep deprived people in speeding buses and cars are racing about on empty roads to get to their destination and warm up at their homes, and maybe even catch a power nap, before deciding to reluctantly turn up at work. When the night gives way to the morning, you have the odd person, who decides to brave the winter mist to walk on the highway stretches. The morning is slowly clearing up. The mist however decides

Bangalore’s Winter- A Photoblog

While #DilliKiSardi is what people fondly remember when it comes to winter in India, there are other places, where winter may not be as strong, but it surely has its own character and colour. I live in Bangalore and Chennai, alternating between the cities. Given Chennai, has very little of what constitutes a winter, I decided to have a look at what an early morning in Bangalore looks like, given that the chill weather rarely does anything to wake me up early. Its 15 degrees, and a reasonably chill winter in Bangalore this year, where temperatures are 2 degrees lower

The importance of Khata in Bangalore

You would have commonly come across the term ‘Khata’ if you are a homebuyer in Bangalore. Well, Khata is nothing but an account with the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) which records property details such as size, location and built-up area and accordingly assesses the property tax that the owner is liable to pay. It is known to be available in two types – A Khata and B Khata. The Khata issued by BBMP is called ‘A’ Khata. It is a legitimate proof of the ownership of the property. Through it, one can avail construction rights, home loans and even register their properties. ‘B’ Khata, in reality, does not exist. The accounts of properties which

Sync up your digital life at Univercell Sync store

I was pleasantly surprised to walk into the Univercell Sync store in Indiranagar, Bangalore, as it was very spic, span and spacious. It is just next to KFC junction on CMH road in Indiranagar so you can’t really miss it! It was also wonderful to see that customers were being able to experience the phones and tablets in a very casual manner rather than being restricted to see only dummy phones. I loved the following quote on the wall at Univercell Sync which was “The future isn’t what it used to be and neither are you. Why just see, if
