If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” These are words of the writer J.R.R. Tolkien. And to add delight to this Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw said “There is no sincerer love than the love of food.

These famous quotes do some justice to the taste buds of those who smart under the glee of ‘good food’. Of course, there is no standard measure of what is ‘good’. One’s delicacy can be another's poison! Nevertheless, the love for food is universal, it's our common ground.

This blogger is in full agreement with Socrates when he says, “Worthless people live only to eat and drink; people of worth eat and drink only to live.” Belonging to the latter category, yours truly is an aficionado of good VEGETARIAN food. It is to celebrate the occasion of VICHAARKHAANA turning FIVE, that DESIZAIKA is being launched.

The blog is an attempt to provide feedback on eating joints [big, small, whatever!] visited by the blogger across INDIA. This country is a vegetarian’s delight. The blog will serve as a small drop in ocean to document places we’ve heard or not heard of! And it is dedicated to my favourite foodie, on this birthday of my beloved B., Mr. Nitin Chauhan!

To quote Ina Garten, in the 'The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook', Food is not about impressing people. It's about making them feel comfortable." This blogger will make a sincere effort to review places on the basis of their overall comfort-level. Readers may feel free to pass any sort of comments on the posts. They will all be looked upon in a positive light and taken into consideration for improving the quality of this blog.

“Forget love, I'd rather fall in chocolate!!!”
