Raji's kitchen

I just got back from spending another week in Chennai. In the mornings, before going to the Music Academy for the Dance Festival, Raji would give me a cooking lesson. I learned how to make tomato rice, lemon rice, rava upma, coconut chutney, tomato chutney, potato masala, vegetables with coconut, and dhal.

I like Raji's kitchen; it's a typical South Indian kitchen, neat and functional:

Hi Isabel,

I recently read an article on hindustantimes.com about some very dedicated teachers in Delhi who are using the Internet to teach kids. Here is the article:
http://www.hindustantimes.com/StoryPage/StoryPage.aspx?id=61f97769-57d9-4eed-84f0-0be5d8c773df

I recently interacted with Ms. Rashmi Kathuria, who has been mentioned in the article. She is a very smart teacher who has been blogging to make kids understand mathematical concepts in a very simple and friendly manner (http://princeofnormal.blogspot.com/2008/01/blogboard.html).

She has recently joined hands with various other teachers and started a website called http://passionateteachers.ning.com .

If it's okay with you, can you mention her contributions and her website on your blog please? I am requesting you because many people read your blog, and through India Outside My Window, her contributions would reach people who are in need yet don't know that help is available.

Sincere apologies for bothering you. You may totally ignore this request if you think I am asking for too much.

Regards,

Venkat
