 Today I am sharing a very delicious paneer dish I.e. Mughlai Nargisi Kofta Curry. A very famous Kofta curry of Mughlai Cuisine. 

My Two Cents on Life:

At this time, when we are facing a very critical time all around the world because of the pandemic, most of us are in the same boat when it comes to depression and anxiety and trying to fight with the situation around. I feel love is the only feeling which can help us come out of such situation. 

love isn’t always about romance. We all receive and give love in so many different ways to so many different people in our lives. Additionally, I think we can all agree we all need love. It’s absolutely necessary for having a happy life. Considering these tough times,  I have decided to discuss today a few thoughts on the subject. I’d love to hear your thoughts as well.

If we show love and compassion towards our family, friends and fellow human being (and animal), I truly believe that the love will be reciprocated. When a person is loved and adored, they become happier human beings. This will surely give them strength to cope with difficult times, no? Knowing you have the love and support of your family and friends gives you courage like nothing else. Can you imagine what the world would be like if everyone did this? However, in trying to be more compassionate towards others, you shouldn’t open yourself up to being hurt as well.
