Right now we are in the early March and yet the time has come to brew perfect iced coffee at home. The winter this year was gentle, not too many cold days and that means a harsh summer is waiting ahead. And to sail through the midsummer, I need homemade iced coffee. As much during winters, hot cup of cappuccino warm up my senses, similarly iced coffee keep me sane throughout summers. Whether piping hot or iced cold, we are sipping this dark, aromatic, energizing liquid year around. Many ambush the idea of serving coffee brew ice-cold. For them, cold coffee always has to be thick, sugar laced, creamy summer thirst quencher. There is nothing wrong in that cold coffee. Most places out of India, milk is not an additive to coffee, or for that matter even tea. Coffee with ice-cream and milk is often classified as a milkshake. We like to adore and appreciate coffee in it’s purest form. The aroma of fresh beans filling the morning air, that gurgling sound of the coffee filter in the quiet kitchen and finally you proudly drinking homemade brewed coffee with the breakfast. Nothing like it!

Sleek and elegant design, smooth bump free ride and ample space to tug inside my photography gear, barbecue grill and a hefty pug pet for a long drive, are my sole selection criteria before buying any new car. Surprisingly Renault’s brand new Lodgy has all the required features which makes it top the list of my favorite MPV (multi purpose vehicle) cars. I ain’t no automobile expert to review a car or criticize its features but as a consumer I have an array of thoughts about the new Renault baby in town and what could be better platform then blogpost to voice your thoughts.
Lately you might have noticed mention of #LiveLodgyCal on most of our social media posts, the whole shout out was about the #livelodgycal drive organized by the team Blogadda at The Leela Palace and Resort, Goa in association with Renault India. The occasion behind the event and the hashtag livelodgycal was the launch of Lodgy – a new car in the MPV segment by the Renault India Team. There was no reason to amiss the opportunity to meet the 40 bloggers from across the country at Leela Palace in Goa that too in the monsoon season, when Goa at its serene best. The minute team Blogadda confirmed the travel itinerary, travel bags were packed, lenses and gear cleaned and from the sweltering Northern heat I escaped to the moist, dark and picturesque Goa.
Some wise man rightly said, ” To forget how to dig the Earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves.” While living in the metro from past many years I never paid attention towards behind the science functioning of food that comes to my plate. I had no clue about the difference between Organic Produce and the Zero Pesticide Produce, basking in my ignorance I classified them in the same category. Till one day when I was introduced to the First Agro Produce by a friend, for the first time the word Zero Pesticide caught my attention. First Agro is India’s first commercial grower (farming) organization with Zero Pesticide™ fresh produce complying with FAO’s and WHO’s Codex Alimentarius, the global food safety standard, for the Indian domestic market. The story behind the First Agro establishment is quite unique. The idea of natural farming struck Nameet M, one of the co-founders and a former pilot when he was flying in Canada. Over the years, Nameet started working with few Canadian farmers on how to grow pesticide free fresh produce using natural methods. After perfecting growing method, he teamed up with his brother M.V. Naveen and cousin K.N. Prasad to form the company. While Naveen has worked in regional leadership roles in global IT services companies, Prasad had leadership roles in IT services and Supply Chain Management with global companies. First Agro’s management team is dynamic, technology-savvy and well-balanced to exponentially scale the organization across 1,500 acres and 16 locations in India.
