Almond & Bottle Gourd Ice Cream for Fathers Day & Master Art of Living!

Happy Fathers Day to all the wonderful Dads!!!!

The mind boggles down a wish to Pause, Reboot, and Cherish Life...!!!

There are many moments in my life where I continue to Learn, Unlearn, and Relearn the lessons of life with new meanings and new beginnings! 

Reflecting on the most valuable lesson of life I got from my parents - 

Learn to  Master Art of living while making a Living...!!!

Learn & Relearn " There is a Season and Reason for Everything in life"...!!! 

Learn to live life gracefully by giving our best shot in the quest of excellence...!!!

My favorite time of the day was when I used to snuggle my mom and my Dad used to read me a fable or two from the storybooks at bedtime. It became a nighttime ritual. The time flew by and now I  continue the tradition with my son!

 Finally, when I grew up I understood the essence of all the fables on how to capture the rhythm in life; to surf in the sea, or sail in the sky, and most importantly how to turn your Achilles Heel into core competencies in life...! 

The answer is not so simple and easy. Yet with some patience and practice, we can master the soft skill vis a vis hard skills to excel in the respective endeavors and reach the pinnacle of success in all walks of life...!!! 

For Fathers day Special, I made the signature recipe of my mom with a twist, cherished, and relished by all family and friends ever since...
