Having so many friends in foreign countries, they keep on asking her about Indian culture, tourist spots etc. and hence, the idea of blogging about India tickled her mind. On 15th August 2012, she started her first blog about Indian Culture, tourist spots, authentic recipes, festivals and lifestyle of Indian people. After a successful journey, she felt that, there should be another blog only about foods and authenticate Indian cuisine. Then she started her food-blog ‘From the Kitchen of an Indian Home Maker’ on 15th August 2013.

Parsi girls become women the day they wear a sari. The sari perawanu or sari-wearing ceremony is a rite of passage. At the centre of the celebration are five married women who help the girl wear a gara or sari for the first time. They tie a small knot of rice, a symbol of fertility, into the corner of the pallu before sprinkling it with rose water. If tradition is identity, then what you wear is one of its clearest markers. It is common drape in urban mercantile community in Saurashtra, Gujarat. However, it’s not very popular in young Parsi women now; but in any occasion or rituals, they use to wear Saree in this style!
