Subhadra Krishna Rau Parigi, the protagonist of our vegetarian cookbook Cooking at Home with Pedatha is no more. She passed away on 20th February 2008, leaving a void behind. This blog is a tribute to her.
Warm, friendly, and above all, an embodiment of unconditional love, she was charming, witty and ever so passionate about cooking and feeding.
A P Parigi, the proud son of our Pedatha, has 35 years of experience spanning across several sectors including telecommunications, media & entertainment. He serves on Boards of several Times of India Group companies including Times Innovative Media Limited (out-of-home), Times Internet Limited (internet), Times Now (television), and WorldWide Media (a joint venture with the BBC). He has fondly recounted his childhood days with his “Amma” and written a tribute to her titled Whose food I eat, her song I sing.
