These are some of the questions I have been asked a few times. And these are the comebacks I wished I had had.

  • Oh, your husband cooks? You are so lucky!

He is very lucky too. I am a good cook myself.

  • You cooked just one curry for your husband?

I don’t just cook. I work, do household chores, exercise AND cook. Also, I cook nutrition packed food. I know how to take care of myself and I educate myself constantly.

  • Why do you have to do makeup?

If we had just one flavor of ice-cream in this world, life…

When you try to set up an anaconda environment for a python project, you may have come across several errors when installing the required libraries. After a few trials and errors, I have come up with the order of steps to be followed to get the environment set up and working.
