Marginalised child: Will Nirmal, the daughter of a woman who irons clothes, get a chance to study in Delhi University?

It is 1:30 am as I sit down to type this. It took me 15 minutes to fill out the Delhi University Admission Form, which is an achievement considering that it took other people almost an hour.

3 Eggplant Dishes That Will Change How You Feel About this Boring Vegetable

An aubergine (brinjal/ baingan) is not a very popular vegetable. People love to hate the ‘baingan‘ because of its texture, which many consider ‘slimy’. Others find it ‘bitter’ to taste. But this very fact that it has a woody, nutty flavour means that the eggplant can be adapted or mixed with several flavours. Also, most people do not cook eggplant properly, with the result that they don’t really realise they are destroying its flavour.
