At the outset.. বাট চ'ৰাতে

Welcome to my world..
I am not a writer nor a poet. Just trying to narrate some of my experiences .. I am usually comfortable in writing in Assamese, my mother tongue. Have written few blogs in English and have tried my hands in composing few poems in Hindi too.. My Hindi speaking friends may excuse me for my audacity to do so..

মোৰ জগতলৈ আদৰিছো...
কোনো কবি সাহিত্যিক মই নহয়, কিছুমান অভিজ্ঞতাৰ বৰ্ণনা মাথোন কৰিছো ইয়াত.. মাতৃভাষা অসমীয়াতে লিখি ভাল পাওঁ যদিও ইংৰাজীতো লিখিছো.. হিন্দী ভাষাতো দুটামান কবিতা লিখিবলৈ চেষ্টা কৰি চাইছো....

Some household tips collected from the net..

To peel the sweet potato faster:
'Boil them, and then immediately soak in cold water for a few minutes. The peeling will be much easier.'

To clean your mirror to look as good as new:
'To clean the mirror so it will look new and shiny, clean first with regular cleaning material to remove the dirt and dust layers. Then mix a glass of vinegar with a quarter cup of water and use some newspaper to gently clean the mirror. After that go over that wet area with a fresh and dry newspaper. The mirror will look as new.

To boil potato faster:
'Peel one side of each potato before you boil them, and they'll be ready much faster. To keep peeled potatoes in their fresh white color, soak them in cold water and add a few drops of vinegar before putting in the fridge.

To stop ants invading your kitchen:
Ants hate cucumbers. Find the ant hole and leave cucumber skin next to it, they won't poke their little heads out!

To make nice, clear ice:
If you want clear ice, just boil the water before you freeze them and keep them isolated, it's the other particles in the water that makes it look dirty.'

To get off the chewing gum stuck on your cloth?
'If you have chewing gum stuck to your clothes, put them in the freezer for about an hour. Then you should be able to simply remove the frozen chewing gum by hand.'

To drive away rats:
'Spill some black pepper where ever you find mice or rats, they'll take one sniff and head for the hills!'

If your hair has lost its luster and spark:
'If you want luster in your hair (personally I prefer distinguished grey hair), add a spoon of vinegar and then wash really well. The luster and shine will reappear!'

If you spill ink on your shirt:
'Get some toothpaste and rub it on the ink stains. Then let it completely dry and take it to the wash. If you acted fast enough, you just may get a clean shirt back.'

How to cut onions without getting watering in your eyes?
There are several ways. First you can cut the onions under cool water, and surprisingly  chewing gum while cutting will sometimes lower the need for tears.
You can also light a candle near the cutting board, the fire burns the gases that cause your eyes to water.
