Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Marriages all around

We live in an area of South Delhi which has a preponderance of so called “farmhouses”.

No much farming goes on here but “milking” the wedding industry ah that is a whole different ball game. These massive houses are built and often rented out as hospitality places and as wedding venues.

The result an enormous amount of glittery bits, generators by the half dozen to supply the electricity, baubles and ribbons and all manner of over the top decorations, including but not limited to statutes of Greek Goddesses, come and go but specially at the weekends when the lights flare up and the music, not always soothing to the ear, starts from early evening to the early morning hours.

We wish each and every couple well but is it really necessary to spend so much money for the wedding and then leave behind a vast trail of rubbish, broken bottles, plastic debris and waste?

Some might argue it is a job creating scheme, but schemes which have promises of a future life should set examples that all can follow.
