Do the Maths!

Do the Maths!

Hey friends! 
Most of us might have seen the movie 21. Do you remember the scene when professor asks Ben the puzzle. Don't remember? No worries! YouTube is there. ;)

Pretty cool! Isn't it? We all studied probability in schools and some people might have studied in colleges but its applications are simply awesome. When I first saw it I didn't get how this exactly happens but then I google the famous problem 'Monty Hall Problem'. And I found this really nice video explaining it.

I presume you got the 'Monty Hall Problem' now. Here is Wikipedia page (Monty Hall Problem) if you want more information.

Stay connected for more interesting stuff.
Have a geeky weekend ahead! :)

A Sunday at Delhi Haat

A Sunday at Delhi Haat

The Delhi Haat provides the ambiance of a traditional Rural Haat or village market, but one suited for more contemporary needs. Here one sees a synthesis of crafts, food and cultural activity. This Food and Craft Bazaar is a treasure house of Indian culture, handicrafts and ethnic cuisine, A unique bazaar, in the heart of the city, it displays the richness of Indian culture on a permanent basis. Step inside the complex for an altogether delightful experience by either buying inimitable ethnic wares, savouring the delicacies of different states or by simply relaxing in the evening with the entire family. Some of the very famous delicacies are momos from Sikkim or Bamboos hot chicken from NagalandKahwa & Kebabs from JammuPuranpoli from Maharashtra or Gujarati Dhokla.

It was lazy Sunday morning when I went to this place. I took 20 rupees ticket and at the very entrance saw this guy playing a keyboard. It was an amusing scene! (He is encircled by people but yes you can spot keyboard! :P)

As I went inside there were craftsmen selling stuff who came there from all across the India. I went to one stall selling beautiful artwork. It was the brilliant piece of Madhubani Art from Bihar. Have a look.

As I went inside I came across food stalls of various states on both sides selling delicacies of respective states. There are Shillong, Maharashtra, Manipur stalls.

Since I am Maharashtrian, I already had good idea of what Marathi food is all about so I thought to try something else. Being a momos lover I chose Momo mia. This stall is run by north-east community and serves one of the best momos in Delhi. Here is Zomato link to Momo Mia! Unlike all the places in Delhi here we can get fried momos which I think lot better than steamed ones. Here are the pictures of Momo Mia. 

After a look at menu I chose chicken fried momos and fruit beer, which kinda look like this. The soup, fruit beer were as good as momos.

So next you are travelling by Yellow Line of Delhi Metro, get off at INA and try this place! :)
