‘Dawat E Kushi’ cooking demo at hubli by Mrs.Tarla Dalal


“Tarla Dalal” a culinary expert name so famous and so well known in India
needs no introduction by anyone. Under the banner of ‘Ladies Circle’, when we circlers decided to call Mrs.Tarla Dalal to Hubli, we were quite hesitant that she would accept our proposal to come to Hubli?

We coordinated with Mrs. Sapna Kamdar, nutritionist (tarladalal.com) with whose support and co-ordination this project would not have been possible. Yes, Mrs.Tarla Dalal was coming here for a cause. Ladies Circle No.45 comprises of wives of Round Table Hubli No.37. We are group of 14 Circles who give service to humanity. Whatever funds are raised goes to Charity. Over the last 10 years LC - 45 has done several meaningfull projects like building Classrooms, Kitchenette’s, Bathrooms and many educational projects to name a few.

Mrs.Tarla Dalal willingly accepted our proposal without any fee. Our
circlers enthusiastically started working towards this Mega project with all small detailing. Hubli being a small town the News of Mrs.Tarla Dalal classes conducted in Hubli was the talk of the town and was much awaited by everyone. Tickets were sold in no time.

On 17th Feb 2008 with little anxiousness a few bunch of circlers went to the
airport to receive her. Within minutes of her arrival her sweet & kind
nature made all of us comfortable. She stayed with us in our house. My joy knew no bounds and I tried my best to make her comfortable. We arranged for a typical South Indian Brahmin style lunch served on a banana leaf, which was enjoyed by all.


On 18th the day started with delicious breakfast at Chairperson Smita Dubeer’s house. Yummy Dosa’s & Idli’s with mouthwatering hot Sambar started
our day with a good note. Later in the early afternoon a programme on “Health – Small steps big rewards” was conducted by Dr.C S Patil in a school, where Mrs.Tarla Dalal gave a talk to parents and children on Obesity and Diabetes.


Several questions were asked by the children, very soon we could see a long queue of children standing to meet Mrs.Tarla Dalal and asking innocent questions. She was so touched by the innocence of the children. After a delicious lunch, we hurried to our Demo Venue, where we soon started off with the demonstration.


Lovely 4 Party cooking recipes were demonstrated by Mrs.Tarla. The audience too asked their queries, all in all the participants went home satisfactorily with beautiful memories in their mind.

All of us are great fans of her. Mrs.Tarla Dalal’s magnetic personality has
touched all our hearts and we are very thankful to her for all her efforts she’s put in to make our project a Grand Success. It is a lifetime remembrance for all of us Circler’s and to all the people of Hubli who got the opportunity of attending her live show.

Thank you very much, mam.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
