Sports Day of India – A message from Indian Hockey Team Vice Captain & Goalkeeper, Sreejesh Ravindran!

SREEJESH HOCKEY - 2 India celebrates National Sports Day, on 29th August, in honor of the unchallenged master of the sports, Major. Dhyan Chand! Remembering and saluting the ‘juggler with the hockey stick’!


Being a sportsman, apart from the health benefits, I learned much about life. It teaches me about teamwork to achieve goals. It’s also about trust, discipline and responsibility and about dealing with success and failure. Another important aspect of sports is its ability to make people feel they are part of something. Hence there emerges the value of using sport as vehicle for development. But while the challenges are great, so is the commitment to find solutions. Competing in hockey has taught me that if I am not willing  to give 120 percent, somebody else will.

SREEJESH HOCKEY  Cheers to all Sports Lovers !

And Happy Blogging!

Differentially Thinking Left Handers

left hand mug Today, August 13th, the left handers day! Do their ability to work; practice with left hand makes them different and special among our society? A study says that the righties judge objects on their right side as positive and object on their left side as negative. But lefties have an opposite aspect. They valued positive things with their left side.

brainorgDo you know the left handers use their hands and feet differently than righties? The brain that control movements should be different in lefties and righties. A survey study shows that more males are lefties rather than female and Canada is the country with maximum percentage of left handers. Psychologists found that left handed people are more affected by fear. They showed more fragmentation in their memories.

Some Psychologists claims that lefties are more creative and brilliant because there is a notion that they use both side of the brains for the tasks where righties use the only left side only. They are better in three dimensional perception and thinking.

Cheers to Left handers!!!

Omnipresent Tea Stalls, From A Memoir!

While thinking about tea, the first shot rush to my memory is the ubiquitous Tea stalls in Kerala. Not only in Kerala but also all over India we can find that Tea is the only language that remains same throughout Indian geography while it keeps differences in its culture, religion, customs, food & costumes, etc. In their busy schedule of life, people don’t have sufficient time to fill their standard clock, but there is a tea time for them to spend where it is being in the home, office or street.  We have national holidays, common electoral system, etc, then why not the tea time as a national break time or past time or avocation of Indians.

Usually, I prefer to have a cup of tea from road side “thelas” (small huts placing in the streets) than a restaurant or hotel. I remember the tea stall near to my ancestral home in Kerala, where the shop owner always keeps a sentence as his slogan “strong tea with or without sugar?” to his customers. Though I am a regular tea drinker from his stall, he used to ask this as a routine. And you can expect this question all around the “chaayakada” (tea shops) of Kerala.

one meter tea of kerala

The demand of “Adicha Chaya” (in Malayalam) or “One Meter Tea” is very much in the area. You might have heard of different types of tea: Black Tea, Olong Tea, Green Tea etc. and this “One Meter tea” sounds astonishing to non mallus. It is stretching the hands with 2 cups of tea by the length of One Meter to a potent concoction of brew. This One meter Chai is the special Tea of all typical Tea shops of Kerala. The sound of the tea pouring forcefully from one container to another is quite rhythmic. And the aroma shall spread all over the air. I felt making One Meter Chai is quite calisthenic and spouting out the bubbles formed at the top of the hot tea is another mouth exercise for the consumer :).


The featured tea glasses with marks of continuous hard stirs with the steel spoons to saturate the sugar and spreading the strong aroma of the brew are unique here. We can identify the long existence of the tea shop by these characteristic glasses, boiler and the other utensils and it is like a trade mark of local tea vendors. But these small tea vendors never compromise with the hygiene.

Local tea stalls are very legendary in earlier movies. The Tea shops were the favorite location for many filmmakers. Tea talks and tea shops witnessed the story board of many Indian cinemas in earlier periods. Whether it is an intro of a hero or the climax of a movie, director’s chair always tend to revolve in a tea set only. Filmmakers of that phase believe tea shops are the very common point where people come to discuss politics, national & international news, and gossiping, economic situation, which is exactly true.

On a journey to Kudajadri, I recall, Roshan, my enthusiastic friend and guide claimed on the featuring of typical tea stalls in Malayalam movies with dark inside, while having tea from a dilapidated tea shack from the road side. When we entered the shop, Roshan grabbed the newspaper and put on the cloth of a newsreader. This is the common scene of a tea stall: a cup of tea and the newspaper. He starts reading aloud for himself and ends it for someone. You can neither keep silence nor feel alone in a tea stall. Because people are eloquent with their choice of topics. We relaxed for sometimes and decided to climb the Kudajadri hills, by appetizing the full flavored tea in the mouth.


Traditional tea shops with wooden benches and radio music are disappearing from our society now. Tea stalls are in progressive path and innovating its interior and infrastructures.  I found those tea huts as the best place to gather and befriend and can enjoy the aromatic brew, tea. Hence, I recommend to all tea lovers that at least once in a while enjoy your aromatic brew, tea from a traditional tea stall and feel the nostalgia!!

Tea – The Fortune Teller!

The persons most fitted to predict accurately their own fortunes are themselves and can offer an unbiased judgment. Though there is no mediator required for a tea leaf reading than a tea cup and the reader, we can say that Tea Leave Reading is much reliable and private. Thus, it is considered to be the simplest and inexpensive ways of fortune telling one can self practice.

The art of tea leaf reading is known as Tasseography / Tasseomancy or Tassology which has been practicing since ancient period. Being a domestic form of prognostication, ‘Reading the Cup’ could be adopted by anyone who can master certain simple rules.

Here we give you some method to procure tea leaf reading.                                                         teacup2

  1. Choose a wide opened white colored cup.
  2. Sprinkle a teaspoon full of tea leaves to a cup of hot water. Tea bags can’t give a good reading because the leaves are too small and identical. This loose tea is more preferable.
  3. Keep calm, open, mind and Focus on recollecting symbols and patterns. To retain the mental creativity, avoid distracting voices.
  4. Now enjoy your cup of tea. Don’t consume too many leaves floating.                                  teacup-cts-mom
  5. Swirl the tea cup 3 times in a clockwise direction. Let the tea leaves spread widely inside the cup. Drain out the remaining liquid by turning your tea cup over in to a saucer. Wait atleast 30 seconds before turning your cup back over. And now we can start reading your tea leaves!                                                                                                          teacup-treeofthree
  6.   Read the cup clockwise. Make a notation of the first symbol you see. Divide the cup in to three sections: rim, middle and base. Note whether you see bubbles, twigs or droplets in your cup.
  7.  Symbol meanings are interpreted differently depending upon the “feeling” that reader get. Letters can represent a person, place or thing whereas numbers can symbolize years, months, week etc.
  8. Likewise jot down all shapes and figures formed inside the cup and identify the meaning first comes in your mind.
  9. The placements of symbols in the cup can often change the meaning. The first symbol in the rim that catches your eyes shows your dominant character or someone near or influential. The symbol in the middle section symbolizes that may be expected to occur quickly. The base signifies your ultimate answer or conclusion.                                            chartteacuppastprefut cropped
