Some moments in life become priceless memories and we cherish them our whole life. That’s exactly how I feel about my Poetic High Tea event at Tamak Restaurant in Feathers Hotel, Chennai. As you all know that I have recently released my debut book – Ballad of Love and longing. So, I decided to organize a reading session in collaboration with Feathers Chennai. The event kicked off by talking about my journey as a poet, what inspired me to write the book and even shared few of my favorite verses from the book. It was an evening which brought out the story teller in me..
The minute I thought of organizing a reading session, I thought of Feathers Hotel, Chennai. I have reviewed (click her to read it) the hotel before and it is one of my favorite places to hang out with family and friends. The lounge area in Tamak restaurant within Feathers hotel was perfect for the occasion!
One of the main reasons why I chose Tamak was for its vegetarian food options in its global menu which is so rare to find in any lounges in Chennai. The food and drinks at Tamak definitely teases your tongue and leaves you in awe especially if you are a foodie like me. Chef Aniket and his team really work hard to make your dining experience special. I was spell bound by few of the dishes like Rangoli Chaat, Seseame scallion cake with shiitake mushroom and my kid couldn’t take his eyes off from Arni at Tamak. The ingredients are sourced from best of places and so fresh that it keeps your stomach happy!
Tamak is a perfect place for your book launches, kitty parties, reading sessions or casual family/friends get together. The small lounge area as you enter the place is a great place to enjoy conversations with chef special mocktails and cocktails. The ambiance is warm and cozy. I was relaxed throughout the event as I could see people around me enjoying the good food and the perfect ambiance. When I see the smiling in these following pictures, it makes it all worthwhile..
I have to thank the entire team of Tamak who made this event a great success. A special thanks to Mr. Rupam Dutta (GM – Feathers Chennai), Rajya (partner – Tamak) and Chef Aniket. I look forward to conducting many more such events and wish Feathers hotel a great success..
Tamak welcomed us with it’s charm,
Smile on each face and great enthusiasm.
Dressed in a blue dress,
I was there to host a poetic high tea –
Dramatic, one can fathom!
Mocktails were served,
Much needed for the Chennai heat.
People relaxed and I became the story teller,
Excited and up on my feet!
The tales and poetry left them famished,
Tamak was all set to please them with starters.
Tea and coffee was served in style,
Dessert is here, look no farther.
It was an evening to remember,
And cherish my whole life.
Days to come will write these stories again,

I can say it many a times…
