But to a true coffee lover, the relationship they want and need is found every morning (noon and night, sometimes!) at the bottom of their favorite mug. Black, cream, sugar, foam, no foam, these preferences could easily divide nations, it seems, because people LOVE their coffee a certain and often will not budge on changing it.

With Independence Day around the corner, people tend to get nostalgic.

Foods to Enjoy in Monsoon Season

84

July, 28th

Each season brings with it a list of delicacies which are innate to it. The rainy season too has a list of piping hot, spicy and fried items which are an integral part of the monsoon menu There’s a deep connect between hot (both in terms of temperature and in terms of spiciness) food and wet rains. Primarily when the temperature falls, as it’s prone to fall after frequent spells of rains, the body craves for warmth and hence spontaneously reaches out for hot food like say soups or fried items. Secondly the monsoons are a time when nostalgia hits and the gloominess in the environment drags us down. In order to snap out of these dark sentiments one turns to the perennial comforter – food - and the spicier it is the quicker we get a mood lift! Scientists claim that the tryptophan in fried, fatty foods is deployed by the human brain to generate serotonin- the feel-good-happy hormone.
