Lonely Hearts Club – The New Indian Express

Express press service

BENGALURU: Hola my tribe! I address you in this way because it is very important to have a sense of belonging. Sometimes an inner loneliness surrounds you and this void is very difficult to fill. You can be surrounded by friends, laughter and songs, but suddenly a melancholy invades you. You don’t know why, but your eyes sting with unshed tears and even a good glass of Merlot doesn’t help! We were invited to the trendy resto-bar, Gawky Goose, to try Chef Sajosh Peetayil’s contribution to the new menu. The guests were an intimate group from a cross section of Bengaluru society.

I love small parties. Conversations flow together just like glass. The chef had the luxury of serving up a range of delicious tasting portions without getting hassled. The owner of ‘Gawky’, Kiran Kumar, is a fit young orthopedic surgeon turned entrepreneur. He understood the pub, focusing on good cocktails and good food.

My son and his friends, who visit frequently, said new millennials and Gen Xers don’t crave the usual greasy treats associated with pub grub. Instead, they were looking for healthier options that would also serve as a complete meal.

Kiran who belongs to this age group has clearly understood the need of his generation. While a “healthy” discussion was going on with tasty morsels of gossip (I’ve been away for six weeks guys!), a popular socialite approaches me and admits that amidst all this commotion of people and the pandemonium , she felt alone! I understood immediately! Nothing a warm hug and an invitation to join our table would cure.

It reminds me of a Barbara Streisand song that had lyrics that dealt with that; “People who need people…are the luckiest people in the world. Reaching out is the most powerful tool if it comes from a place of integrity! Barely being in my ooru for a week and the dirt seeping into the water supply at my posh CBD address was a downside. Although we were not to blame for blocking the pipes in Raja-Kaluve, the aftermath of the floods in the town took its toll, with sewage seeping into our water supply.

Almost immediately I was stuck with the “mother of all” colon infections that required ongoing medical attention and I felt so sorry for myself. But, when you have a friend like Priya Mascarenhas, the de facto first lady of Bangalore (she was also my parents’ friend) who calls you and speaks candidly to you, reminding you of your strength and your pedigree, you instantly feel better. ! The beautiful flowers in her precious garden, along with a bottle of sparkling wine and my favorite Chanel perfume made me spin with joy.

Auld Bangalore certainly knows how to do things in style! My good friend restaurateur and entrepreneur Riyaaz Amlani invited us to the opening of his delicatessen, Smoke House Deli in a new avatar. He is CEO of Impresario Entertainment & Hospitality and Chairman of the National Restaurant Association of India. I like his sense of innovation. He is an articulate and restless person who never rests on his laurels. Its chain of restaurants caters to different people and palates. Smart move… His customers don’t have to find new places to eat and drink. It has different moves for different people!
