To Be Or Not To Be Human.

william-shakespeare-framed-quote-552

I have fallen into the habit of keeping a Google News tab open on my laptop every day, choosing to read the daily news update as I get to the mails for the day. This morning, however, turned out to be quite depressing!

The top news trending on Google News was about the death of a HUMAN who was left on the roads to bleed to death after being hit by another HUMAN. If that wasn’t enough, a rotten, stinking, lousy mushed tomato of a man actually stole the victim’s phone and made off.

Accident Victim Bleeds To Death On Road In Delhi, Gets His Phone Stolen But No Help

If that wasn’t enough, video grabs showed that the hit-and-run driver did stop his vehicle and alight from it; but only to check the stupid, God-damned vehicle which is totally valueless in comparison to a human life.

And that is not how you want to start your day.

But how I end it is still my choice (well, almost, always. Unless you have some other blighted idiot choosing to trend on the world news). So I choose #Mission500K.

ThinkQuisitive  has collaborated with the Robin Hood Army this Independence Day to feed over 5 million people from India and Pakistan (In your face you country-splitters)!  They require your time and also your money (Let’s be practical, they will require contributions).

For a country hitting global news for leaving men to die alone on the roads, let’s get out on to the roads to feed people living there. And though #RHAKolkata does it every day, for one day let’s be a part of their team and make a difference to our own lives.

I will leave you to choose if you want to end your day better than I started mine. #TQThoughts coming up :

Clicking your way through groceries!

Living in Calcutta? Frustrated with the daily siesta of the shopkeepers here? Don’t wish to drag your butt to the grocery store after the long hours of work and longer snarls of traffic jam?

Look who’s here! Justshop24 ~ which promises to deliver groceries at your doorstep and damn right they do!

The inventory lists at Justshop24 range from the basics of rice, dal, flour, salt to beauty products to organic foods to even sanitary napkins! It is literally the neighborhood kiraana store breaking physical barriers and becoming home delivery friendly for you.

They also offer recipes of snacks and desserts which don’t take much time to whip up. You can place an order for the recipe of your choice and they’ll send across the products you’d require for your cooking. Options to modify the ingredient list is open. I wish the number and variety of recipes provided were more because I can’t wait to try my hand at more dishes other than the ones I ordered for – cheese balls and beans on toast!

What’s better is they also have defined time slots for deliveries which you can choose from. In case you’re still unsure of your availability at the time of delivery you can add delivery instructions in case of your absence.

Now that I have received the ingredients I wanted, I can’t wait to get to the kitchen to work on them! (Don’t get your hopes too high. I’m more lazy than I am excited. 😉 But I will come around soon and let you know how cheesy those cheese balls were! )
