Ricky’s (Rohit Suchanti) In Love With Sita/Siya (Shruti Prakash) What Will It Take For Him To Win Her LOVE? Saath Nibaana Saathiya

I tell you,

I can’t sleep at night

wanting to hold her tight….

It’s Too Late To Turn Back Now”

~~~

Ramakant/Ricky (Rohit Suchanti) broke poor Sita’s (Shruti Prakash) heart when he ran off and left her standing cold at the wedding venue. And then one day he showed up at the Modi mansion doorstep as the married husband of Sameera (Priya Tandon) instead.

Even though Sita never stopped loving him for one moment she persevered though. I tell you I felt so bad for her as she has the same type of sweet, gentle and loving spirit as Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee). And it’s sad when you love someone who does not love you back.

Finally present circumstances has humbled Ricky so that with time he did fall in love with Siya and now it’s been revealed she’s been Sita all the time.

Ricky’s state is hopeless now being in love with Sita and knowing she loves him dearly but won’t give into her feelings and marry him because she believes he’s in love with the fake Siya whose role she was playing for a while.

So nowadays Ricky has to figure out a way to convince her that he loves her. I wonder what will it take for him to win her love?

Love Me Some RedBone!

~~~

Redbone – Come And Get Your Love – The Midnight Special 1974

~~~

I love their song “Come And Get Your Love” that topped the charts back in the 70’s and I adore this above music video and how it starts out with the Indian garb and dance performance which is so amazing to see.

With all the recent uproar regarding “Standing Rock” lately and the fight against the construction of the Dakota access pipeline, started me to thinking more deeply and caring even more about Native American people and their plight.

Back in 1973, the song “We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee”, brought a lot of attention to the massacre by the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the Lakota Sioux Indians in 1890. The song was number one in the charts in various areas like in the Netherlands but didn’t do well in the United States because of it being such a controversial and touchy subject.

REDBONE We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee 1973

~~~

So Pat and Candido “Lolly” Vasquez-Vegas moved to Los Angeles California in 1969 and formed this amazing Native American Rock group.

Their groups name RedBone is a Cajun term for a mixed race person.

Barun Sobti (Advay Singh Raizada) Achi lagti ho!! Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 3

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon is back for a third time but no Khushi (Sanaya Irani) and Arnav this time. I was so hoping and looking for her to make a come back with him.

Well his new love is a girl name Chandini (Shavani Tomar) and it’s only been a week and a half since the show’s airing and I’m hooked already! Achi lagti ho!

I tell you Barun Sobti rocks!!! The man can seduce the hell out of any new show, the man is just so dark, mysterious and amazing and I’m liking Chandini as well right about now because she is working it for real! The two of them have amazing “**CHEMISTRY**” already.

So once again I can’t wait until tomorrow’s episode. Is that is a sign that this one will be another great hit for Barun?

Anyway, welcome back Barun! Achi lagti ho! (LOL!)

Ranjit Singh (Damanpreet Singh) and Mehtab Kaur (Tunisha Sharma) Are Getting Married! On My New Favorite Show ~~Sher-E-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh~~

Maha Singh (Shaleen Bhanot) and Gurubaksh Singh’s (Rumi Khan) father has discussed and agreed on Ranjit Singh (Damanpreet Singh) and Mehtab Kaur’s (Tunisha Sharma) marriage ceremonies to start the same day on Sher-E-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Maha knows he only has but a little time before his chest wound kills him. I feel so bad for Ranjit because he has no clue about how much his father is suffering. It is amazing how Maha had his wife cover up the bleeding wound and help him dress up and how he is acting as if everything is fine. He doesn’t want his son to feel bad about his true condition. The unbelievable courage of Maha is great and the love he has for his son brings tears to your eyes. I had my box of tissues close by because it was so nice to see all thru the show how loving and respectful this man is. This week the show ended on that note, but the pre-scene for next week shows Maha dies in his sons arms.

All I know is how much I will miss watching the amazing Maha Singh and how his relationship was with his best friend Gurubaksh that was so powerful, so close, respectful and loving, also his loving and kind relationship he has with his wife Raj Kaur (Sneha Wagh) and the amazing relationship he has with his young brave and clever son Ranjit who admires and adores his father so much.

So although a marriage ceremony should be joyful and it will be for Ranjit Singh but he has no idea as to how Sada Kaur (Sonia Singh) the widow of Gurubaksh has turned Mehtab against him and how she is teaching her daughter to hate him and seek revenge for her father Gurubaksh’s death. It’s a sad way to start a marriage and a lie that Ranjit caused Gurubaksh’s death. Ranjit adores this family yet Sada Kaur always was jealous of the friendship of Maha and Gurubaksh and so she hated Ranjit too for no real and good enough reason.

I just wish things were different in that Ranjit and Mehtab were married earlier while Gurubaksh and Maha were closer and did not have that conspiracy happen to break apart their friendship that caused the war that brought about Gurubaksh’s death and now the impending death of Maha.

Well can’t wait till next week’s show.

A New Amazing Show To Love: Sher-E-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh

First off I have to say that Sneha Wagh is back and she is definitely regal as she plays Raj Kaur who is the wife to the handsome and good looking Maha Singh (Shaleen Bhanot) and mother to Maharaja Ranjit Singh (Damanpreet Singh) and she is so amazing.

I am loving every character and every minute of this new show. The men like Maha Singh, Gurubaksh Singh were best friends and they turned on each other due to conspiracies in the show. I tell you their friendship was so loving and so amazing. These two men played their roles to the hilt, as they are what you would like to call a man’s men. Real men! I ask do these types of chivalrous men exist in the world today? Certainly not, but you cannot help but wish they did. As it is so amazing to get caught up while watching them in action because they make you wish it was so. LOL!

I fell in love with the loving relationship between Maha and Raj Kaur. Her husband was tough but so loving and gentle with his wife and she loved calling her husband Lord and making him feel her confidence and love for him as well.

Ranjit Singh their son, is an amazing and very clever young man who was raised well by his parents and is a real asset to the Sukkerchakia kingdom. It is so cute and funny to see how he likes to out smart his enemies every single time. Its so amazing to watch him in action.

And the wardrobes of the women is outstanding. Women like Raj Kaur, Mehtab Kaur (Tunisha Sharma) and Sada Kaur (Sonia Singh) and Roop Saheb Singh (Parvati Sehgal) are so regal that they make you wish you could have been born in those times.

But lately the last few episodes has taken a sad turn for the worse. I am so upset to have seen Gurubaksh Singh die and now this week that amazing and good looking Maha Singh has been stabbed in his heart and is slowing dying too as a result of battle. So I feel so bad for Ranjit Singh that he will be loosing his father at such a young and tender age.

Well anyway I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Kiss Some People Goodbye! Friends…

I thought I’d share some really cool short video’s I’ve grown to love by T.D. Jakes…. the topic friendships.

I love it when he says learn how to kiss some people goodbye and be a 360 thinker. Know who your friends are. Learn how to work with people who come and go in your life. Consider them to be like scaffolding. Scaffolding holds up a building for a time until its completed and then it’s removed right. He says love em when they come and love em when they go. Just don’t get bitter over constituents and comrades, because you must realize that if they leave they were never with you.

If you find a person who will be really happy for you then they are your confidants. Praise God for the people he sent to you not the ones who left.

Then here he says avoid people who seek to control and silence your personality. And advises that people exercise their bodies and minds. He says don’t exercise for appearance sake but for longevity. And for your mind you must read, read and read! So these are my favorites.

Good News! Jaggi’s Back On His Feet And Saves Gopi: Saath Nibaana Saathiya

there’s a magic that must be love….

just take it slow, we got so far to go….

you know that love survives, so we can rock forever…

~Rock With You~

~MICHAEL JACKSON~

~~~

Jaggi (Mohammad Nazim) forced himself up as he rose from that wheel chair to help Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) as she was hurt badly in a fall and so he not only got up, but he picked her up in his arms as well and proceeded to carry her to the hospital in his bare feet. I just couldn’t believe it! But I saw it! It was an amazing sight to see. Oh Wow! It was so amazing to watch how he loves and cares so much for Gopi.

Earlier in the soap, Gopi had been visited by Ahem’s (Mohammad Nazim) ghost (bhoot.) You would never believe it but she was tying a ribbon around the banyan tree for him and thinking of him as Jaggi was sitting nearby. Well Ahem took the string out of her hands and started walking in the opposite direction so as to unwind the thread she’d just tied. Then he explained to her that she must move on in life and allow Jaggi to love her now. Good advice he gave her as he told her to let his spirit go.

And so who would have guessed that it would have to take Ahem’s ghost (bhoot) to cause her to think sensibly because it seems like everyone else’s words have been falling on deaf ears.

I tell you, I am so looking forward to seeing great and amazing things for Gopi and Jaggi and it’s such good news that he is back on his feet again, just in time as their love is blossoming. All the amazing scenes of them getting closer and falling in love with each other. I can’t wait to see their budding romance progress all the more.

I Love DIY Cosmetics

~~~

“How To Make Crayon Lipstick – Easy DIY Recipe – Ms Toi”

~~~

I love growing and learning various ways in which to pamper myself, incorporate and make healthy changes in my life a little at a time.

I experimented with simple ingredients and learned how to create my own lotions, face cream, deodorant, tooth pastes, mouth washes and soaps. Then I realized the expensive makeup I had been purchasing all these years was not good for my skin and overall health. I figured there has to be a better way…. so I began to learn how to make my own mascara, lip balms, lipsticks, bronzing powder, wet and dry foundations and nail polishes in a way that is much more healthier and less expensive.

Lipstick or Lip Balms

1. Storage containers, lipstick holders or a lipstick mold. 2. Healthy oils, and vitamin E. 3. Mica powder or various colorful powders. 4. Plain 100% bees wax or 100% bees wax crayons.

Black/Color Mascara’s and Eye Liner

1. Activated charcoal powder or 2. toast some almonds til they turn black and grind them up in a coffee grinder or 3. by catching the black suet from burning a wick on a clay or stainless steel tray or diva.

Healthy oils, like castor oil, vitamin E, and/or some aloe vera gel etc.

A clean empty mascara tube with brush.

Different colors can be made with various powders or mica powder instead of the charcoal, almonds or black suet.

Bronzing Powders, Dry or Wet Foundation,

I did not realize how easy it is to make your own by using simple ingredients in the kitchen.

I blend powders like cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, turmeric, hibiscus or beet powder and a bit of cornstarch or clay to make an amazing bronzing powder or a dry or wet foundation by adding healthy oils. You could even use mica powder as well. But I prefer to not use mica powder on my face.

Eye Shadow

Beet or hibiscus powder with coco or any color mica powder into a small container with a bit of oil to create a soft eye shadow.

Frankin Nail Polish

4 or 5 free nail polish suspension base, various color glitter for nail polish or mica in various colors. Nail polish bottles that contain stainless steel mixing balls in them and nail brush.

The first time I mixed my own nail polish I tried using a kit as they come with everything you need to get started right away. Even the kits are much cheaper then buying the expensive vegan nail polishes which I used to buy sparingly because I wanted the better nail polish that did not contain those 5 dangerous chemicals or I’d wear nothing at all.

A simple base coat and top coat still needs to be purchased and I still buy my nail polish remover from Zoya or Spa natural.

~~~

I love watching these YouTube Videos to get lots of amazing Ideas

Anita’s (Ira Soni) “Daughter” Sameer- Back For Her Mother’s Revenge: Saath Nibaana Saathiya

And so as if the Modi’s don’t have enough troubles right now….

Who’s the new girl on Saath Nibaana Saathiya? Well it turns out she’s Anita’s (Ira Soni) daughter.

Anita, Ahem Modi’s (Mohammad Nazim) old flame from back in the day. I tell you, just the sight of Anita’s daughter brings me back to the good ole days when Saath Nibaana Saathiya was a brand new show. Back then Ahem and Anita was in love before Kokila (Rupal Patel) stepped up and arranged for the alliance of Gopi (Gia Manek) and Ahem’s marriage.

Ahem, the good loyal son, obedient to his mom Kokila abided by his mother’s wishes and married Gopi instead of his love, Anita. I tell you Anita did put on a great performance back then as she tried her best to stop Ahem’s marriage to Gopi but finally Ahem’s relationship with Anita came to an end and so poor Anita was left broken hearted and for a while Ahem hated Gopi and took out his loss on Gopi. I tell you I felt so sorry for both Anita and Gopi back then, it was a sticky situation, but yet I was so happy to see Gopi getting married to Ahem.

The marriage progressed as Gopi went through a lot while Kokila who was very strict worked on transforming her daughter in law by teaching her how to win the love of her son.

Midway through their marriage Anita wiggled her way back into Ahem’s life and moved into the Modi Mansion disrupting Gopi and Ahem’s marriage as she tried to get her love back but her attempts failed in the end.

I tell you, I thought perhaps one day Anita (Ira Soni) was going to make a come back once more just as Mansi (Kajal Pisal) did to take out revenge on the Modi family. Anyway I never expected Anita would have a daughter who would show up years later for her mother’s revenge.

So my questions are…. Who is this girl Sameer anyway other than her being Anita’s daughter? Who is her father? Is she Ahem and Anita’s daughter? Didn’t Anita move on and get married to someone else? Is the revenge she hopes to get really worth all the trouble? And why is she using Ricky who recently arrived on the scene just as she did?

Ricky’s (Rohit Suchanti) troublesome ways is causing havoc in the Modi household just as recently everyone finds out that he is Gopi and Ahem’s long lost son. But lately Ricky’s innocent looking nanny showed up on the door steps of the Modi mansion and little do they know, his nanny is not so innocent after all because she is sneaking poison in the oil Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) uses to massage into Jaggi’s (Mohammad Nazim) feet as Gopi is trying to help Jaggi learn to walk again. So this nanny is bent on trying to derail Jaggi and Gopi’s hard work. She’s wants revenge because she feels Jaggi and the Modi family have mistreated her favorite child Ricky. But it’s amazing that the other night Jaggi startled Ricky’s Nanny when he came out of no where as he caught her stealthy at the door giving money to a creepy looking old lady. She told Jaggi she was getting some medicine.

So now that Jaggi’s suspicions have been aroused, hopefully the Nanny and her evil intentions will be exposed before any further damage is done to Jaggi by her. I hope the Modi’s will soon send this old hag on her way just as they exposed and gotten rid of crazy Gaura (Vandana Pathak) that caused the accident that put Jaggi in the wheel chair in the first place. As he is having some bad luck with these two “old hags” trying to ruin his life here lately, hopefully his luck will soon change for the better in that regard.

It is so nice to see how Jaggi and Gopi are experiencing some cute, romantic and loving moments together and that they are getting closer. I think Jaggi is really the best thing that has ever happened to Gopi. He’s such a nice guy! He keeps her happy and his amazing happy personality is contagious. He seems to be such a pleasure to be around. Who in their right mind would not love a happy go lucky kind of guy. He is really so handsome and just right for Gopi and Gopi is just right for him.

You gotta love, admire and adore Kokila’s personality so much too as Kokila is always being a strong amazing presence in Gopi’s life. Helping to guide her, she wants Gopi to see how amazing Jaggi is for her in stressing that Gopi should try harder to move on in making a life with Jaggi.

I tell you I am so addicted and in love with this amazing show!

Easy Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe

~~~

It turns out that eggplant is now one of my most favorite foods and it runs neck and neck with yellow squash. I have to tell you that this wasn’t always true. As a matter of fact I used to hate eggplant and squash until I found a way to cook them to my liking.

It was my step mom’s delicious yellow squash recipe that caused me to fall in love with squash. And it was a crock pot Indian recipe that I tried years ago that made me love eggplant.

While this recipe tastes so good you would think the cook was in the kitchen all day making it but instead it is so quick and easy to prepare. All you need is four (4) major ingredients: spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, croutons and eggplant.

And I have to tell you that my husband absolutely loves this recipe too. So if you make it and like it let me know.

~~~

My Easy Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe

Ingredients:

1 extra large eggplant (peeled and sliced slightly thick)

8-10 cups of garlic spaghetti sauce

3-4 cups of shredded fresh mozzarella cheese

3-4 Tablespoons of cooking oil

1-2 Tablespoons of Lawry’s seasoned salt, garlic powder and onion powder

2 cups of ranch style croutons (or any kind of croutons you may prefer will work) or

1 cup of Italian bread crumbs (sprinkled over the sliced eggplant)

Utensils:

1 large oblong glass dish/pan

1 sheet of aluminum foil (enough to cover)

Directions:

Preheat oven at 345 degrees.

1. Oil the pan.

2. Place eggplant slices onto pan evenly.

3. Sprinkle seasonings/spices and bread crumbs across the top of the eggplant slices.

4. Add spaghetti sauce over the eggplant slices.

5. Spread/sprinkle the mozzarella evenly across the top of spaghetti sauce.

6. Cover pan with foil.

7. Let dish bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until done.

8. Remove pan from oven and if using croutons instead of the bread crumbs place them around the edges of the pan into the spaghetti sauce, cover again and bake for another 2-5 minutes only. Then remove from oven.

It’s ready to serve and enough for 5-6 servings. With a side of butter toasted crusty french bread and a salad it was delicious if I must say so myself, LOL!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’d like to try this recipe with thin sliced green tomatoes added next time. I will let you know how it goes. Also you can play around with this recipe by adding some fresh mushrooms too.
