Dry Aloo Palak Recipe is an easy to make side dish recipe made from potatoes and spinach. It goes really well along with rice, roti, puri or paratha.
The world is becoming smaller and smaller. The distance between countries and people living in those countries are also shrinking.
One of the biggest examples is these “rose days”, “teddy days” etc. that we celebrate in India these days. Until a few years back we didn’t know about Thanksgiving or, Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays.
But these days, stores in India are giving discounts on their products as part of a Black Friday / Cyber Monday promotions.
While a lot of this can be attributed to technology which has shrunk distances, some of this is also a straight result of the marketing strategy of these big brands.
Guess who benefits the most on all of these rose days, father’s day etc?
It’s the flower stores, gift stores, restaurants, movie halls etc. And that is why you see all of them doing a lot of promotions on these days.
Nevertheless, whatever be the reason for them becoming popular, I look at it as an opportunity to meet and greet people.
In this busy life of ours, when we cannot find time for ourselves, we completely forget about everybody else in our lives.
These occasions at least give us a reason to walk upto those people who we tend to ignore, and tell them that we love them and that we care for them.
You can call that as an excuse and it is true that you shouldn’t need a day to celebrate somebody in your life. Yet somewhere I think, it helps to remind us about those important people in our lives.

BTW, did you shop during this Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale?
I did buy some things. Some were tools and resources for my online business and some household items as well.
If you are into blogging or, any other online business, then this is a good opportunity to pick up things that you need at decent discounts.
A couple of my favorite ones are below –

I also happened to order some nice household items from Aliexpress. I love them for 2 reasons – the many options and varieties that you have and secondly, the excellent service that I get from them. You can check out some of the items in the deals here.
