DESI CHEF…Pratap Chahal is one the very finest desi chefs working in London right now, not to mention one my oldest and most insane friends from Saint Stephen’s College. Everyone knew that Pratap was destined to do something extraordinary with his life; perhaps write lyrics for Infected Mushroom? But Pratap moved to London and into the hard core sleep-two-hours-a-night cut-throat world of cheffing instead. And he has taken cooking to a new level of other-worldly experience- having been lucky enough to share a flat with him in London, I can say with a degree of authority that if the devil offers you one of this pastries in exchange for your immortal soul…you should take the pastry.

THE BIOSCOPE is a staple of every good mela (fair or festival); it is an old fashioned movie or slide projector that is traditionally kept running by having a guy wind a lever round and round. It usually has B-grade Bollywood film tunes blasting and as you peek through the child-sized circular windows you can watch your favorite stars flash by. Here are some music video classics for your listening enjoyment. Kitsch and general classic retro stuff. Also includes newer tunes that we want to hear again and again.
