Best Pocket Friendly Food Joint- Sumeet Chat Bhandar @Madhapur. HYD

A good place to have a quick bite of your favourite chat, samosa, pav bhaji, Vada pav among a huge list of other items. Icecreams, lassi, parathas - an extensive menu on the table. Though the place does not have a classy ambience as it is just a basic small place. This place is at the main road and they have decent north Indian food Items. If you want to have good budget food, this place is the answer. Some things to try are Pani puri, chaat, lachha paratha with aloo tamatar subzi, Also, if you happen to visit during brunch timings you can try their speciality Matar puri with subzi. You can also get fresh juices over here.  An owner is a cheerful person and the staff looks slightly rough but is well behaved. If you are fond of Chat then do try Samosa Chat it best in Hyderabad. Masala cheese pav bhaji is worth trying. The ambience is not that good but what matters to me is the food, which I can assure that it will be always good. Grilled Sandwich, Milkshakes, Fruit Icecream, Chats are some of the specialities from this place. All items are very much affordable. The place is slightly clumsy, but who cares for a quick bite ;) when hungry.

Baked Saviours from Wenger's@ Connaught Place

On my recent visit to Connaught Place along with my friend we visited the one of the oldest bakery, located in the heart of the city namely ‘Wenger’. This is the oldest bakery in Delhi. After visiting there I realized why the place is so famous. I was amazed at the options available there. The place welcomes you with a fresh aroma of cakes, pastries, patties, doughnuts, pizza fresh dough as well as chocolates and caramel toffees. Wenger’s has got some exquisite bakery items and confectionery items; the taste remains to be one of the finest in town. You may try mutton Patty if non-vegetarian or mushrooms Patty if you are a vegetarian. Everything here is fresh and tasty from sandwiches to cakes to cookies to chocolate. We end up buying their famous chicken patty and strawberry mousse, which indeed was the yummiest version of strawberry mousse. Those amazing food items bring a smile on your face. They do not have any other outlet in Delhi.

There some drawbacks, as well as this place, is always overcrowded and no one from the staff bothers to maintain or arrange it or either they need to be trained on it, another drawback thing which is bad there's no seating arrangement or washroom. Tit o add up to all you’ll be bewildered when it comes to billing the items (It’s a total mess and craziness). Looking at the mismanagement feels this is little overhyped place.

The questionnaire with Neha Shwens Firoz

1.       How did you first get involved in with writing, are you an imaginative person?

There was a time when I used to write in diaries. I was very fond of writing. But at that time, I had no sense that this passion for writing could also by profession. I still remember the day when my friend advised me to write a book knowing my interest in writing. Since then It became my aim to write a book. And yes, I'm an imaginative girl so it was never too tough to write ever for me.

2.       What do you find most challenging about your writing?

Now I'm thinking over to write a true story of someone's life. Therefore, it's going to be more challenging for me. To write based on imagination is simple for me than writing something true.

3.       What do you do when you are not writing?

When I'm not writing, I read novels as well as religious books.

4.       Where do you see yourself in the next 6 months?

In the next 6 months, I see me as a Founder of my own 'Tanzo Open Mic for students.

5.       How do you keep coming up with material/content for your story?

Imagination, observation, understanding, experiences and family support give me content for my write-up.

6.       Any specific tips you have for new writers who want to make it big in the world of published books?

Dear writers,
You can't think yourself a writer unless you fall in love with the idea of reading. Don't limit your reading to a genre. Read different books to gain free perspective like I get the help of this from my literary advisor who always recommends me books to read.

Direct your focus on your feelings, idea and opinions; and how to put them on papers.

Write for yourself; rewrite for others'…this is one of the greatest writing tips for beginners anyone could give you. Know your audience better than they know themselves. Act as if you are speaking to one person and write accordingly to create an emotional tie with your readers. One great way to do that is to connect with your readers to learn their perspective, their side of the story. Make your readers feel something.

7.       What’s the best thing a writer can give to his readers?

Love, stress reduction, vocabulary expansion, concentration, better writing skills etc.

8.       Where is your favourite place to write?

My room where I spend most of my time in peace.

9.       What motivates you most in life?

It was my sister late. Tanzo who used to inspire me to do what I love and dream to be. She's not around me but her words motivate me always.

10.   What are your views on increasing plagiarism?

It's very sad that people do so. They can steal words but not the creative writers have in their writing.

11.   What is the story behind the name of your book?

Filled with questions and themes of clashing backgrounds, crime, suspense, love, family feuds and personal scandals, this book will have you flipping through the pages anxiously. It brings you back to the realities of life: how fragile love can be and the realizations of trust and fear. Hotbed Against Bond of Love narrates the relationship between Mayank and Naina and offers a unique reading experience. Direct and action-packed, the masterful use of emotion and suspense will keep you totally engrossed and guessing until the end.
