Go Indie | Adopt Don't Shop

I have always had a soft corner for Indian street dogs. Be it little pups with the dreamiest of eyes, or the adult dogs who refuse to grow up, I love all furries out there. No matter how tough their lives have been, Indian street dogs will welcome you with all the warmth in their hearts, they will still carry a sparkle in their eyes. People who can't look beyond the 'street dog”' in them, don't know what they are missing out here!
Here are few of my favourite rescue cases that I have been involved with lately. Even though life has brought them down couple of times, these tough indies refuse to give up! All these beautiful stories are a reminder that every dog deserves a family, a home that they can call their own, a place where they will be adored and looked after, humans that will make sure they never sleep without a meal again.

It isn’t easy being a mother dog on the streets. The one in the above is called Mother.

An Affair To Remember (The Lalit, Chandigarh)

Hola Amigos

If you follow me on Instagram & Snapchat, you already have a hint about #TheLalitExperience that I had last weekend!
I'm gonna tell you  everything about my Grand Experience, one thing at a time, starting with my Lunch at the "Royal Indian Affair", a food fest hosted by Baluchi.
For those who are not aware, Baluchi is The Lalit's Signature Pan Indian Luxury Dining Restaurant. If you want to experience luxurious dining with a peaceful view, while gorging on a variety of flavors from across the country, Baluchi is the place to be.

Baluchi's "Royal Indian Affair" is a 15-day food fest (27 August, 2016- 10 September, 2016) , so you can still visit the venue & experience what I experienced...yayyy!

Let's do this!

The set-up at the entrance gave out such a Royal Vibe. We were welcomed by Rose- Flavored drinks, which was heavenly!

The Royal Bar! This beautifully set-up corner was my favorite.

This is the famed "Naanery" of Baluchi. In case you're wondering what it means, its a combination of the words- Naan & Winery (Naan + Winery = Naanery)
Its an array of Indian breads, served with wine & assorted chutneys. I loved the concept & my favorite out of this was Gilafi Kulcha with Kashmiri Apple Chutney.


- Dal Sultani
- Lakhnavi Paneer Laung Latika
- Rajasthani Papad ki Sabzi
- Hyderabadi Sabz Bahar
- Kashmiri Pulaav
- Assorted Chutneys

The chef helped us decide what we should try, and everything he suggested was truly lip-smacking! If you're at Baluchi, you shouldn't go without trying Rajasthani Papad Ki Sabzi, which has now become my favorite Indian sabzi. 

And don't leave without eating the mouth-watering Ghevar! Honestly, I am not a fan of Indian Sweets & Desserts, but this one still has me craving for more!

Besides Food & Ambience, a big thumbs up to the Hospitality!

So, that was it about my lunch at the Royal Indian Affair, Baluchi. Make use of the weekend & experience something truly royal!
In case there's something else that you would like to know, you can leave a comment below, or drop me a message on Instagram, I'd be happy to help!
Also, I would be sharing more from #TheLalitExperince very soon! Until then, take care.
