Words form the basic tools for any writer.

Words convey meanings as well as emotions.

Words are borrowed as well lent by languages.

Words often fuse together to form new words.

Words have interesting tales hidden behind them.

Words can be picturesque, descriptive, rhyming or poetic.

The components of some words appear to be contradicting.

Some words appear to be the wrong names for the right things.

We shall explore the wonderful world of words now.

I forgot to post the introduction to the blog! Here it is now!

Human beings may look different! The color of their skin may differ. The color of their eyes and hair may vary. Their features may be as varied as is theoretically possible. They may dress differently and speak different languages.

But despite all these differences, the human mind works exactly in the same way - whatever be the nationality, language, customs, traditions, religion and beliefs of the individuals.

So it is small wonder that we find the same ideas being conveyed through the proverbs in different languages.

Here is a comparative study of the parallel proverbs in Tamil and English.

Food is one of the basic necessities of all living beings.

Food nourishes the body and gives us the energy we need to do work.

Food has color, flavor and taste and satisfies the eyes, nose and taste buds.

Tastes have some associated properties. So, also the colors and flavors.

We shall explore in this blog the Food, Flavors, Tastes and Benefits of some spices,

herbs, nuts, grains, vegetables, fruits and edible flowers.

Tastes, flavours and benefits
