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.

The Satpura Reservoir

There is nothing like seeing and feeling water all around you. Something that we sorely miss living in Delhi so any opportunity to be close to water is warmly embraced and none more so then the reservoir we came across in Satpura.Created by flooding the Denwa River it is an expanse of water which stretches for miles and is the magnet for migratory and other birds, crocodiles and fish.

This is the jetty that we used to cross over into the National Park.

One of the rivers with huge glacial boulders making for wonderful reflections in the water.
The highlight for me was a cycle ride to the reservoir where this boy took us out in his dogout. We looked at the geese and ducks in their V formations flying overhead and spotted the lapwings, the waders and the hornbills.

High tea by the reservoir

Anthony realising that rowing is quite a skill !

The dugout which filled with water alarmingly fast but which the boys controlled ably with an empty tin.

The light falling like slivers of silver on the water.


  1. wow never knew such places in india really! and what a shame I am an Indian, usually it is just the urban mess that I get fed up with!

  2. This really is a beautiful place....but I believe that these photographs are from the Tawa reservoir on the river Tawa...(Denwa just happens to meet the reservoir)...and not the Satpura reservoir....the latter is at Sarni.....
