If you want to relive the days gone by, Ruchira Sonalkar’s Native Tongue with its fun twists on classic foods is just the thing for you!
She describes her work as:
Native Tongue’s range of products include slow jams, fruit cordials, stoneground nut butters, dessert sauces and savoury spreads. And all of these are made with our signature recipes and locally-sourced ingredients. Our entire selection is handcrafted, small-batch and 100 percent naturally made from India’s delicious indigenous produce.
You can find them on their Instagram page here or on their website here.
It all started in a tiny Mumbai home kitchen. Our friend was expecting her first child, and we wanted to do something special in the form of edible hampers for a baby announcement.
Being 80s kids, we knew nostalgia would play a big part. We took regular pantry staples and recreated flavours from our childhood. It was a hit!
Thus, Native Tongue was born, out of our love for everything homemade and natural, interwoven with tastes of childhood, and memories of a time gone by.
The mango tree in the backyard that never stopped giving. Or the bhaiya who waited outside school with sliced guavas topped with namak-mirchi. And the cloyingly sweet marzipans lovingly gifted by everyone’s favourite Christian aunty in the neighbourhood. With Native Tongue, we’ve tried to recreate all of these.
Native Tongue is all about celebrating India’s indigenous produce, which is why we receive so much love from our customers. Our product range takes pride in unique flavours, which are fun twists on some old classics and take our customers on a ride down memory lane.
Some of our most loved products are Peanut Butter with Chilly – this tastes similar to singdana chutney and Salted Caramel Sauce which is reminiscent of a toffee. Other than these, our customers also love the Thandai Nut Butter, Mulberry Preserve and Alphonso Preserve with Saffron.
Another reason our customers love us is due to our ‘No Plastic’ policy. We do not use bubble wrap or any other plastic to secure our products while shipping. This just adds to the joy our customers feel when they open a Native Tongue package!

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
