Riddle and Rhyme

Vee had put up a flower’s picture as a riddle in his post and asked the readers to guess its name. I was lucky and shrewd 😛 enough to guess it and now I have to do the “riddle me this” tag.

But I wasn’t satisfied to put up an image only. I decided to make up a riddle for it. Here goes my riddle and the image. Comments section is open to guesses. The first person who guesses it correctly shall be the winner.

The Romantic Me

So its Valentine’ s Day. Time to spend the day with your loved one. Time to talk about all things related to love. Time to do all things related to love. Time to listen to love songs, watch romantic movies, to get all mushy/sentimental/nostalgic/sad/happy whatever the case may be. I decided to list some of my favorite romantic things instead.

My Favorite Love Quote:-

“Love is giving someone your heart, knowing that they can destroy your whole world when you do that, but trusting that person not to do that”.

My Favorite Love Poem :- How do I love thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Food Superstitions and Myths

As you reach out to have one, your bananaroom mate or mother or grandmother says “You shouldn’t eat banana when you are having cold.” Why? Because banana is supposed to be a “cold” food and so it might increase the severity of the illness. This is just another example of a food superstition. I have had similar advice from hostel mates to not eat rice, another “cold” food, when one is having fever. I love rice and I hardly eat rotis. Needless to say I didn’t heed my friends’ advice but I never suffered more because of it. There are many such examples of “hot” and “cold” food and similar restrictions. My room mates didn’t use to eat eggs in dinner if there was an exam next day!! You know egg = zero = 0 . Another classic example of food superstition. Here are some more examples from all over the world :-
