Kitchen Science

Science Revision with Yog goes something like this:
Example of Sedimentation
When we make Pakoras in the house, after some time, small pieces of Pakoras settle down in the oil. This is called Sedimentation
Example of Decantation
After the small pieces of pakora have settled down, we pour out the oil. This is called Decantation
Example of Filtration
When we make tea, we use a Sieve to filter the team from tea leaves. This is called Filtration
Example of Purification
When we are making Green tea, we boil water. It kills all the pathogens in the water. This is called Purification.
I am left with the following thoughts-
Kitchen, indeed, is the best science laboratory
These are perfect examples of Science in action.
I wonder if Yog is learning science or learning cooking
I want to tell him there are other places in the world which apply science, but then tell myself, “ki farak painda hai!”

I am an ex-Management Consultant and a successful entrepreneur having close to twenty years of corporate experience. I am currently focusing full time on being a homeschooling parent while researching on the future of education and alternate methods of education. I am also a Vedic Math Trainer, an Operations Manager at a business run by her children and a philanthropist working with tens of other under privileged children. I bring all my past and current experiences together in the form of writing blogs. Using these blogs I wish to create awareness in parents, caregivers and educators about parenting, education and holistic living.
