Mansi tagged me for a Mid name Meme more than a month back. I scratched my head for many many days before managing to come up with this. 😀 – “Ask Lakshmi to write it”.😀
Latha Rukmini is my maiden name. Since I don’t have a middle name I choose the name Rukmini.
R – Risk
I strongly believe that without risk there can be no gain. I take and have taken risks – big ones – in every aspect of my life.
U – Unabashed
I don’t feel embarassed or guilty about anything from kitchen disasters to preparing indulgent food to expressing my opinion or ignorance. I find embarassment or guilt to be emotions of no use or constructive consequence.
K – Kindness
The one characteristic that draws me most to people is Kindness.
M – Management
I place a lot of importance on effective management of time and skills. I believe that to live life to the fullest, one must use time and skills to the best extent possible.
I like being independent and like to give others their independence. Lakshmi says, “Well, almost”
N – Negativity
I shun negativity in all forms – negative thoughts or negative actions. I am a die hard optimist.
I – Indispensable
I believe that nothing or no one in this world is indispensable. People adapt to change and the world is driven by the sheer will of people to live well.
Take half a pound of Noodles and cook in enough water and salt until al dente or firm and chewy. Saute 1 tsp of ginger and garlic and 2 pieces of red chillies in some oil. Add finely sliced vegetables like red peppers, cabbage, carrot, baby corn, onions and saute till they are cooked. Add 6tbsp of tomato puree, salt and basil and simmer for a few minutes. Take off gas and toss in the noodles.
I will be on a short blogging break because of a tadka that I accidently poured on my feet. See you in a while with Deepavali preparations.
