It takes no genius to realise that there is a great paradox between the Sikh philosophy and Punjabi culture.  There is so much discrimination in Punjabi culture that it pains me that these Punjabi’s proudly call themselves Sikhs whilst delving in such hypocrisy.

The Science behind Indian Food

Scientists have figured out what makes Indian food so delicious

Indian food, with its hodgepodge of ingredients and intoxicating aromas, is coveted around the world. The labor-intensive cuisine and its mix of spices is more often than not a revelation for those who sit down to eat it for the first time.
