A carrer change from law to food,
all this because of Paris..
a success story as well!
Culinary historians claim that macaroons can be traced to an Italian monastery of the 9th century. The monks came to France in 1533, joined by the pastry chefs of Catherine de Medici, wife of King Henri II. Later, two Benedictine nuns, Sister Marguerite and Sister Marie-Elisabeth, came to Nancy seeking asylum during the French Revolution. The two women paid for their housing by baking and selling macaroon cookies, and thus became known as the "Macaroon Sisters". Recipes for macaroons (also spelled "mackaroon," "maccaroon" and "mackaroom") appear in recipe books at least as early as 1725 (Robert Smith's Court Cookery, or the Complete English Cook).
Italian Jews later adopted the cookie because it has no flour or leavening (macaroons are leavened by egg whites) and can be enjoyed during the eight-day observation of Passover. It was introduced to other European Jews and became popular as a year-round sweet. Over time, coconut was added to the ground almonds and, in certain recipes, replaced them. Potato starch is also sometimes included in the recipe, to give the macaroons more body.

Right-wing Hindu groups in India say they will be "requesting" unmarried couples
caught in public on Valentine's Day to marry on the spot
- an announcement that's provoked a backlash on Facebook.
But in an act of protest against moral policing, thousands of romantic notes have been appearing on Facebook this week
as part of an organised "Love Letters Movement".
The pro-Valentine's camp is just as organised as their opponents. Rahul Pasupalan is an organiser of the "Kiss of Love" group, which is not only behind the love letters protest but also got crowds out in Kerala in a mass kiss to protest the vandalising of a cafe where couples were shown kissing on television. This time around, the group is planning a huge Valentine's Day celebration.

WEBQUEST : India-Webquest
The nature of relations between the British and Indians changed over time, as did British attitudes toward India and Indians. In earlier days some Britons assimilated readily to Oriental ways of life or even intermarried with Indians. Particularly after the traumatic uprising of 1857-58, however, relations were often strained, as conventional ideas about European racial superiority became more prominent and as Victorian notions of morality and evangelical movements to convert the world to a particular kind of Christianity became influential. By the latter part of the 19th century, for example, the idea of a "respectable" English person marrying an Indian was virtually unthinkable. Of course, the very fact that the British were by definition a ruling elite and Indians -- however rich or important -- a subject people often strained relations. This could exacerbate cultural misunderstandings, a situation which is the focus of E.M. Forster's great anti-imperial novel,

Cartoon: Is There Life on Mars?
BACKGROUND India has successfully launched a spacecraft to Mars - with the aim of becoming the fourth space agency to reach the Red Planet. The spacecraft is set to travel for 300 days, reaching Mars orbit in 2014. If the satellite orbits the Red Planet, India's space agency will become the fourth in the world after those of the US, Russia and Europe to undertake a successful Mars mission. Full story >> THE CARTOON The cartoon by Peter Brookes from The Times shows the Indian rocket shooting off into space while down below hundreds of Indians are clinging precariously to a train. One of them asks the rhetorical question, "Is there a life down here?" (i.e. a life worth living). COMMENTARY The cartoonist uses a line from a well-known David Bowie song to question the utility of a 'poor' country like India, which has serious infrastructure and public health problems (to name but two), spending $74m on a mission to Mars and roughly $1 billion a year on its overall space programme.
GRAMMAR Note the way in which the word 'life' is used in both an uncountable and countable form. In the phrase, "Is there life on Mars?" the word 'life' is uncountable because we are talking about living things in general. • Is there intelligent life on other planets? However, in the phrase "Is there a life down here?", the man is referring to the activities that form a particular part of a person's life. • He has had a good life. See here for more on the usage and meanings of 'life'.
