    Wow Indira…Wishing you and your cherished memoir a happy Bday and also wishing it many many more years. Your presence in the blogging world has bought happiness, pleasure, a kind helpful hand, a surrogate motherly care and a calming peace with your food based medicines all these years. You might not have been in person in so many ppl house, but your blog has given that personal touch to so many hearts. It takes a lot to keep sharing such unconditional love to all and on this day, I want to let you know how much we appreciate your gesture and how much we appreciate you.

    Though this word has been used and abused enough to lose it real meaning, I cannot help but say it again today – “Thank You”.

And most importantly it taught me to respect food, respect my body and be conscious about what I put into it. In this time and world its hard to meet/imagine someone like you Indira! Mahanandi made food spiritual!

    Dear Indira, happy anniversary.
    I happened to visit your blog for the first time more than 3 years ago thru another link and that link was my introduction to blogs. I remember then sitting straight & going thru all your recipes in two days and wondering that you cooked more like my mom (than I did.)
    Though I don’t blog hop much, you are one of the few bloggers I keep visiting.
