It’s my very first winters in Delhi and winter for me means to binge on food. The city offers so many flavours that I usually get confused about what to eat and amidst of all the confusion I found myself in Eros Hotel’s A Taste of Kashmir food festival. The usual Singh Sahib is converted in Kashmiri theme, right from the table set up where a small decorated Shikara was placed along with the service staffs wearing Kashmiri dresses. The fragrance of traditional Kahva from the pot, being served in the traditional clay glass (khullar) was the thing that arrested my senses on a cold winter evening. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Kashmiri food is an indigenous fusion of spices and herbs to bring out some of the most unique flavours across the country. Spices that are suited to beat the chilly winters. The meal started with a refreshing drinks and a platter of starters both veg and non-veg to choose from like Surkh Tsaman Tikka, Rajma Kababa, Arvi Anjeer Kebab and more for the vegetarians. Maaz Shammi, Gadh Dhaniwal Tikka and Kukur Kabargah will be the recommendation for the non-vegetarians.

They also had plenty in store for the vegetarians with delicacies of lotus stem, mushrooms, haakh (Kashmiri spinach) and eggplant.After the main course desserts were presented, one had ample options to choose from – Kong Phirni (saffron and milk pudding), Khubani Ki Kheer (apricot pudding), Chukander-e-Afroz (beetroot halwa), Sewiyan Kashmiri and more. I specially liked the buffet system with a big Kashmiri themed back drop, along with a traditional Kangri to keep the atmosphere warm. Whole buffet is set up in a way that the guests could taste through all the traditional Kashmiri food like along with different Kashmiri spices which were on display as well. The perfect ambience for that perfect lunch or dinner! We like!

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to consider the contribution of business houses to the chief minister’s relief funds (CMRF) as money spent on corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities. The letter, a copy of which is with PTI, pointed out “one major infirmity in the present CSR framework as provided in the Companies Act 2013”, concerning the interest of the states. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights While contributions to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF) was mentioned as an eligible activity under the CSR in the 2013 Act, the same made to the CMRF was not considered as an activity “eligible for contribution under the CSR”, she wrote in the letter. “It will indeed be praiseworthy if contribution to CMRF in the states is also made an eligible activity under CSR. The little contribution would be very helpful to all the states to extend the much-desired assistance and relief to people in need,” the letter read.

We have been using the fund to provide medical, education and other kinds of relief to the most needy and distressed people in their times of grave financial crisis. However due to paucity of funds, “we are not being able to fulfill all the requests made for support,” her letter read. The current regime of the CSR in the country was introduced with the notification of Section 135 of the Companies Act 2013 and the CSR Policy Rules, 2014. It mandates that from April 1, 2014 every company, private limited or public limited, which either has a net worth of Rs 500 crore or a turnover of Rs 1,000 crore or net profit of Rs 5 crore, has to spend at least 2 percent of its average net profit for the immediately preceding three financial years on corporate social responsibility activities.
