Tandoori Kingdom Presents Springtime in India

Oh how we relish these longer days with sunshine and warmth – now imagine Springtime in India!  Tandoori Kingdom would like to help your imagination!

Here In Canada -

Here we watch the icicles melting and cheer on the sunshine.  In Canada we’re still in the dreaming stage…dreaming of gardens filled with color, weather warm enough to be unencumbered by layers of clothing, and visions of children playing in the parks.

In India this is both harvest and planting season.  There are so many festivals to celebrate.  Festivals celebrating spring itself, religious festivals, harvest festivals and planting festivals.

Only 3 Main Seasons!

Spring in India is based on the Hindu calendar rather than a change in weather.  Known to have only three seasons – winter, summer and monsoon, springtime is a wonderful time to travel and take part in the many layers of culture found there.

Starting in Mid-February to Mid-April, the season begins earlier than here.  One of the first celebrations is Vasant Panchami – the beginning of spring.

Mughal Gardens

Then for an entire month the residential gardens of the President of India are open for public viewing.  A 15 acre estate knows as the Mughal Gardens surrounding the residence are a riot of springtime color.  With roses, tulips and bougainvillea as the mainstay plants the beauty is spectacular.  Even found are very specially planted themed gardens of bonsai, peace and tranquility etc.

As mentioned here in Canada we’re still in the dreaming stage!  If you’re lucky enough to have a greenhouse you may actually be in the planting stage and planning where everything is going to go.

During the springtime months India is already feeling temperatures of 27-35 degrees Celsius.

Bamboo harvest (Chapchor kut) is celebrated shortly before the planting of spring wheat.

There are celebrations of New Years for the Baha’is and Zoroastrians’ as well as Palm Sunday and Easter.

and...HOLI

However, one of the most colorful festivals actually known as Festival of Color or Holi is a two day celebration known nearly throughout the world now.

The festival stems from pranks that Lord Krishna was known for.

It is said that he enjoyed throwing colored powder on the village girls and wetting them, making the village a riot of bright colors during the 2 day event.

Nowadays the colored powder is still thrown but water guns are used to aim well and wet!!

Whatever your heritage – springtime in Canada is certainly worth celebrating!

SAY IT! – SAY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

TANDOORI KINGDOM SAYS "MERRY CHRISTMAS" TO BARRIE

They’re saying it!  Listen…The staff and owners of Tandoori Kingdom at 428 Blake Street in Barrie are wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

Actually they’ve reached out to us to have a special message sent to everyone in Barrie.  Nirmal Mangat, one of the owners at Tandoori Kingdom would like everyone to take a moment and share the joy of the season by saying Merry Christmas to someone.

So many of us have been struggling with holidays this year, and the inability to keep our traditional gatherings due to the Pandemic.

Nirmal is asking each of us to reach out.  Reach out to someone that you haven’t spoken to lately, or someone you safely cross paths with during your time spent out and about.

Even better yet, use our comment section to wish your “Special Someone” a Merry Christmas.

You see, Nirmal is concerned!  Concerned about neighbors and families that may be struggling with loneliness more so than usual this year.

As a business owner in Barrie, Nirmal has firsthand knowledge of what our safety protocols have cost us.  We need to stay safe, but we must remember that this season is one of caring and sharing.  We CAN do this safely!  Walking a pet?  I’m sure that you always stay socially distanced while doing so.  Wish others a Merry Christmas as you pass – Then tell us about it!  Let’s start a “Say Merry Christmas” campaign!!

Let others know – sing it if you will – as you’re out and about!  Bring goodwill to all!

Do you have a neighbor that is alone? Reach out – phone or drop a note to the door; this could mean far more than you would ever imagine! 

These random acts of kindness bring a special ray of sunshine to those alone or unable to go out.  Tandoori Kingdom thinks that this campaign is important!

In fact they’re offering each person who has said Merry Christmas to someone a 10% discount on their next meal! 

Go in, or order takeout by phone at (705) 503 1400, and let them know you’ve taken part in the “Say Merry Christmas” campaign….it’s that easy.

This year – shout it out… Tandoori Kingdom has.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
