Bhagara Dahi/ Tempered Curd

“Which of the favors of your Lord , will you deny
                                                                                                  Surah Rahman Chapter 55, V 13
This verse of surah rahman has always captivated me. And the day I started understanding the whole surah, I felt we were so ungrateful to the almighty for the things, he has given us. It’s human nature to crib for what we don’t have. But at least we can try to be thankful for what we have. Accepting that life is not always perfect. There will be barriers and stumbles. It is how we overcome it. 
Don’t you think life would become simple & easier  if we bring  acceptance in our life. Accept what we have been given by him and be thankful for what we are blessed with. There are many things around us , so many blessings  which we ignore to see. Many people I come across question my thinking. And reply it’s very easy to say when you have everything in your life.  
Who said my life is perfect. It is just that, I thank him each moment for what he has given me.When I see a kids or people begging for food , I  feel blessed. When I see someone with torn clothes  roaming around roads. I feel blessed. When I hear parents forcing their kids into labor or prostitution. I feel blessed to be born in a house where my parents loved us all selflessly .Though I have issues in my life,  I feel so blessed for all the things he has given me.

  1. Totally agree to you Humi... that verse is a hitter, and how many times does He repeat it in a Surah which is so aptly titled "The Merciful"? We are so ungrateful for whatever we have, at least He didn't leave us in such a condition where we cannot survive... Alhamdulillah... The tempered curd sounds so near to our moru curry... slight difference in the ingredients used, this is comfort food with a hot bowl of rice!
  2. AlhamduLillah is the word that can change our life.. so easy to utter but very difficult to feel.. InshaAllah as you said, we can try :)

    Keralites' very own moru curry.. kids like this way more than grinding coconut... yumm.. liked your pic
