Remembering Jayasree - A Tribute To A Wonderful Blogger


Picture courtesy by Lata Akka

We can cross many persons everyday but some will touch your heart with their smiling face even virtually..

I still cant believe Jayasree Satish of Kailas Kitchen is no more among us...

It was a big shock for me when i came to know through FB by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen's status that Jayasree passed away on 12th october cause of pneumonia, i couldnt able to believe it and readed her status twice to confirm it, coz Jayasree was quite active in FB with her navarathiri menus and pictures even before few days..

She was a wonderful blogger who never failed to leave her encouraging words and i never failed to visit her space..We never met really but she was someone closed to my heart,whenever i post something in my space or in FB, she never failed to leave her thoughts about it..Through her space, even a beginner in cooking can make out wonderful authentic dishes as she shared many authentic South Indian dishes with wonderful descriptions..We truly missing you Jayasree...

To honour her memory, i prepared her Soya Vaangi Bhath..

We are calling anyone who either followed her blog or knew her to join your hands with us in this tribute to Jayasree..
Visit her blog Experiments in Kailas Kitchen,choose any recipe as you wish..
Take a picture of the dish you have tried from her space..
Visit her page 'Kailas Kitchen' on facebook,post your picture there with the original recipe's link..

Very true... Blogging is a space where though we dont meet each other, but some how our hearts are connected to each other and make us grow closer.... I often visited her blog and after reading the news of her sad demise I immediately chekd out her blog once again and the feeling of something amiss instantly hit me. The feeling is too heavy to believe it to be true.... May her soul rest in peace...

I am definitely going to join this tribute.Perhaps during the weekend. I am still not over this shock. God took her away from her family wayyyy before her time. I dunno if she has kids..my heart goes out to her family who have been dealt with an extremely cruel blow from fate. She was an extreme source of inspiration with her great recipes!

Such a depressing news Priya. I was a follower of her blog space and was an admirer of her recipes. May her soul rest in peace.

Heartfelt condolence to Jayashree. One more smile passed away.
I am just a amateur in cooking, but I will try to do one dish from her blog by showing my gratitude towards her.

Let God make her soul rest in peace.

This is really so shocking. Saw it on FB and just couldn't believe it as she has been so active. In the blogging world though we haven't seen or met each other still feel like we know each other so well as every morning starts with visiting the blogs and reading the posts.
