        Dear Pratibha ji, many thanks, for acknowledging the receipt my message by posting a quick response. Regarding my origin, my father hailed from Haladi, and my mom, Shankarpur, but together they settled in Shettibettu mostly, and, in Parkala, for some time. I left India when I was just 17, and currently settled in Canada. I live here with my daughter who also is my only child.

        Once again,I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the pain and efforts you have invested in designing this beautiful Cookery website consisting authentic and delectable recipes, that, I am sure, is helping millions by making their time in the kitchen easier and food enjoyable.
