  1. Happy Birthday!

    I hope you have a great year. It sounds like you have really figured out what you need to be happy and stay on track. I wish you the best of luck.

    I know of a large chain bakery/restaurant (Panera Bread) here in the states that donates huge bagfuls of leftover baked goods to a church that feeds senior citizens. Maybe you could get some information from them about approaching restaurants near you.

    I’ve been meaning to tell you that my kids are very enamored with India. My oldest daughter was taking Hindi lessons until her teacher moved. My youngest daughter got a salwar kameez and a sari for her birthday.

    They’ve watched many of movies and they love Sharukh Khan.I liked Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. It was a romance but it had a depth to it that Hollywood movies lack. Their favorite is Veer-Zaara and Fanaa. I digress, but I wanted to share this with you 🙂

    • Thank you Dawne!

      I dont know whether I have it figured it out or not but I am taking small steps towards it. Thank you. I need all the luck. 😀

      Wow! That’s great. I’ll look them up and see if they can tell me about their model. I will, of course, have to adapt it to Indian realities but this might be a great start. Thank you so much.

      It is interesting that you think the movie had more depth than a lot of Hollywood movies. We, in India, believe quite the opposite, actually! We are enamoured by Hollywood. In fact, till recently, I was totally in love with Tom Cruise. Lol. Haven’t felt that way about anybody in Bollywood.

      I think it’s great that your daughter tried to learn Hindi. It is difficult for Indians to find people who want to learn Hindi. Interestingly, a large number of Indians speak better English than Hindi. I am, unfortunately, one of those. You should visit India sometime with your daughters. It is a very very interesting place. And pretty cheap as well.

  2. i love this post!

    i am very much in the same boat as you were explaining in your “secondly” and “fourthly” part and also happen to be… 27. hah!

    that’s awesome that you’re trying to feed the homeless with restaurant’s leftovers. it’s disgusting how much food is wasted and the number of people starving… it doesn’t make any sense!

    unfortunately i don’t have any advice for you b/c where i live (this is so freakin ridiculous!)… it is illegal to feed the homeless if you don’t have a shelter license. i live in las vegas… city of excess and never ending buffets… after the weekend, all the food from the casinos is taken to a pig farm, NOT the homeless b/c the city law says something along the lines of not wanting to be liable if someone gets sick.. it truly is sad. but good luck to you!!

    • Thank you. No. 2 is what I really meant with respect to your post but I suppose I wasn’t articulate enough.

      That IS pretty ridiculous. In a way, I suppose it is better that they go to a pig Farm than the dustbin like they do in India. Having said that, the logic behind the law continues to elude me. Do they mean to imply that the food served by the casinos etc. Is not up to the mark? Its strange.
      Thank you for the encouragement. I’m hoping to do this with atleast 1 restaurant. One step at a time! 🙂

      • i believe it’s because of the casino shelf life of the food… when it’s deemed no longer good for public consumption they throw it out. i think it’s got a few extra days before it goes bad but i guess that’s just the way it is…….
