A 2 Z of India

This was initially Vinni's idea to write something like this, but it stuck to me and I came up with this -

A: Alphanso Aam, one can not find sweeter and juicy fruit than this.

B: Bagha Beach, Goa. Life zimplly rocks here. There can not be a better stress buster than just lying idly on the bagha beach.

C: Chutneys, the food in India can never be complete with these Add-ons which are so varied and add such a flavor to the food. No ketchup can ever meet the traditional Indian chutneys

D: Dal Makhni, The butter soaked lentils my favorite among all India food.

E: Entrance Examinations, CAT, XAT, UPSC, JEE, and a lot more India is a home ground for the world toughest competitive examination. I have always loved the sense of challenge with every entrance examination requires in India.

F: Functions, India has been a house for most plush and lavish functions with a splendid and exorbitant display of wealth

G: Gandhi Family, The Gandhi family is one dynasty which rules India. Though their significant contribution to the country has been close to zilch for almost two decades but still they claim to be hope for the next generation India.

H: Hindi, The national but most ignored language in India (People who want to raise a voice against this point, remember what happened in Mumbai last month)

I: India & The ‘I’ in everyone who is an Indian.

J: Jalebi one sweet dish which makes me go bonkers, goes as well with curd as with vanilla ice cream.

K: Kaafi, u might call it passé and say cappuccino is in but we still prefer our own Filter Coffee oops Kaafi.

L: Lassi, Traditional Indian drink often prepared in washing machines.

M: Makke ki Roti & Sarson ka saag, the traditional Punjabi food makes you fall in love with India all over again.

N: Nano, It is not available yet but this one surely got India the respect and pride.

O: for me its always the India’s pride Aryabhatta’s zerO

P: Pondicherry, One of the most serene beaches one can find, in India, No pomp & show no glamour, just peace of mind.

Q: Queues which are seldom followed

R: Radio, All India or Vividh Bharti though we have numerous channels on FM but still the All India Radio, Ameen Sayani and Cibaca Geetmala (my mom said it used to be Binaca before I was born) all remain a characteristic of India

S: Sahyadri Ranges, a place with awesome treks and amazing weather. A mirror of natural beauty especially in the monsoons.

T: Tata’s one group which would touch your life through out the day no matter what you do, or where you are in India.

U:Udupi Hotels, One of the world’s most viable low cost restaurant business models.

V: Vishakhapatnam, One of the underestimated and undervalued tourist destinations. The clean blue sea bed of Rishikonda beach can’t be found elsewhere.

W: Weddings, If you be a part of you would realize how lavish ceremonies numerous in number happen in India.

X: Xerox, equipment which has an important contribution in building of India with immaculate amount of professionals using it to pass exams by studying with all the photocopied material, Notes, guides, books and much more.

Y: Y2K, it passed away without any flair but this one event was responsible for a lot of IT talent recognition for India

Z: ZEE TV, The company owned by Subhash Chandra which brought Indian Entertainment to new age with pioneering cable television, Direct to Home Television and now the T20 cricket

Now I tag Vinni
