About Me

Someone who fell in love with the natural world early on and has been smitten ever since. A blade of grass, a mighty mountain, a tiny raindrop, a roaring waterfall, all fill me with awe and wonder. Nature feels home, filled with warmth and love. It pains my heart to see this home being ravaged. This blog is an effort to find tweaks in modern living to preserve the sanctity of this home. I sincerely hope that you join me in this green karmic journey.

Guess What!



Guess What!!
I had made this shampoo with amla, reetha and shikakai (gooseberries, soap nuts and Acacia concinna).


On a whim, I took a picture and asked a 'green' friend to guess what it could be. I generally share all green news and views with this friend and wondered if he would be able to guess it. 

He couldn't. And just for the fun of it, I thought of asking all my friends. Here are the answers: 

Most Popular Guesses:

Jaljeera 
Keri Panna
Kaadha
Kanji

Also Rans: 

Jeera- Ajwain Water, Apple Juice, Apple Cider, Banana Stem Juice, Amla Juice, Pumpkin Juice, Lauki Juice, Sugarcane Juice,  Tamarind Water, Avocado Juice, Kale Juice, Toddy, Barley Water, Oreo Shake, Chamomile TeaLemon Water,Boiled Chickpeas/ Kidney Beans Water

Frustrated Tries: 

Mud Water
Gutter Water
Moraji Desai Inspired Drink ;)

Favorite Answer:

Compost Tea

I was surprised that nobody could guess it right. I thought that a few would have definitely used it, at least in their childhood. 

I guessed that the froth at the top might be a give away. But yeah, even sugarcane juice has froth:) Also, if you've not used soap nuts ever, you wouldn't know.

Now, if you recollect having used this shampoo, do let me know your recipe and experience. 

Ciao!! And thanks a ton for your answers:)
