My Kitchen...

Its been a while i started cooking at home. Trust me, its fun (atleast for now). :D

Me and my roomie had to experiment with the basic versions of cooked rice, dal, vegetable fries, chicken fry with variations of more salt most of times, less water and burning up the stuff and thinking out-of-the-box solutions like using chicken masalas in aloo(potato) fry....fried rice(wic turned out well).

Thankfully, most of times, the recipies turned out to be well. Soon, i'd be inviting all you guys for lunc/dinner whichever is to our comfort. Will update here with good recipies i come across and may be some kitchen adventures.

Assertion of the lost champion

As I write this article, Mr.Bush said US will use military aircraft and naval forces to deliver aid to Georgia following its conflict with Russia. Just couple of hours back there was a news report saying Russians have headed into the strategic city of Gori and violating the truce with Georgia. Georgia was being banged from South Ossetia and Abkazia before coming to this city in the interiors.

First of all i'm doubtful about the move by US on a 'humanitarian' aid with its military equipment and soldiers.

Today's Bush's statement was quite shocking to me as he wants to send US troops for aid. I just pray there is no camouflage in it. Confrontation with Russian troops would imperil numerous factors - American economy, big blow to already crippled US dollar, rise in gas prices, possibility of escalating conflicts using WMDs.

Earlier, Georgian prez, Mikhail Saakashvili said the Western response has been inadequate and that they share the blame of not reacting to the events as required. Thats quite a statement! So, here we go....the american (over stretched) troops to be dropped in the zone pretty soon. :D

The ongoing crisis in Georgia looks to me as a assertion by Russia that its no longer a post-soviet era. That it can provide a balance to interests of other super-power presently at the helm, following with additional gains of controlling the strategic caspian gas resources. Ossetians, Abkazians were any way pro-Russia. Mikhail made blunder of modern history, for sure!!!

I initially thought this military adventure will surely turn in Russia's favour. But, things are changing. Bigger question is about its implications, if Russia gains.

Going military boom boom over Russia by US, NATO or the combination will spell a definite disaster on west and strategic, financial and military victory for Russia (it as enough friends to make against America).
On any day, this would be come back of Russia on global geo-political stage.
