An amazing musical evening

I think the best musical evening in my life still now. Yesterday I spent the evening with Ustad Fazal Qureshi, Milind Date, Ravi Iyer and Sridar Parthasarathy. We spent first two hours in a room on the 18th floor of Marriott talking on various topics. Then they put the fire on stage for the next 30 minutes :) Photos and videos will come out in next few days.

An experiment (Making cake at home )

Raw materials required:

  • 200gm Maida
  • 200gm Sugar
  • 100gm butter
  • 6 eggs
  • One and half tablespoon baking powder
  • One tablespoon Vanilla essence


Crush the sugar and mix it with vanilla and eggs and the butter (make it hot so that it melds). Mix them well. In another place mix baking powder and maida, and then put the egg+sugar mix on top of it. Stir it slowly and in one direction , try to keep air bubbles minimum. On a glass bowl put little bit butter all over and put some dry maida on the wall. Then put it on refrigerator for few minutes. After that put the pix into it, put it on microwave oven. Put it for Microwave+Convection for around 15 minutes. Check for the color and smell in between.
