My Instagram Best Of 2015

2015 was the year when my Instagram connections rose from something around 100 to 700+ This encouraged me give more attention to what I post, and how. And as the year-end is approaching, I see my photos being noticed and loved more. This, obviously, is a great feeling. Here I am sharing few posts from 2015 which are my personal favourites.

My first post of the year was a lip-smacking Bengali dish from the Bangladeshi restaurant, Kasturi.

Few days later I attended the conference to celebrate 10 years of Bengali Wikipedia. The cake that was cut at the end of the first day of the conference –

My mother was suffering from kidney disease and was following a restricted diet which was boring and monotonous. Doctors allowed exceptions about once a month and this is what I cooked for her one fine January evening –

I always love this type of things at the end of the year. So good to see your year in review and remember those special moments all over again. I love your pictures

Thanks for sharing the unique and interesting culture-filled photos! Now that my children are in college, hubby and I have been enjoying eating out and trying exotic dishes. Not quite as exotic and authentic as the dishes you have eaten, however.
There is still so much of the world I haven’t seen and would love to visit the Far East some day!

Food and travel – my favorite things to see pictures of! These are so unique and cultural! I am so glad your Instagram followers grew this year, it is no wonder! I look forward to what your Instagram feed will look like in 2016!

Thank you for sharing your best of 2015. I still have to figure out what mine was…but thank goodness everything is documented in Instagram. Hoping you have an equally if not more fabulous year in 2016! Happy New Year!

I have to admit, my mouth is watering! You have so many great food photographs in your Instagram feed. I think the most riveting is the street photography shot. Very compelling.


Love seeing all of your bests. I need to go back through all of my pictures. I am starting the project 365 and I can’t wait to see what types of pictures I am going to be taking tonight.


Your year has certainly been interesting. I have enjoyed browsing through your instagram photos. I like the mushroom on toast pic. Will you make me some now that I am hungry?
