    When it comes to monsoons, there are almost always two kinds of people. One who love the rains. And the other group, who well, hate it to the core and enjoy the downpour as long as they're indoors. I belong to the second set. And if you're one of 'em, we sure know how to enjoy this weather to the fullest indoors by creating a cosy little cocoon, curling up in a blanket and gorging on our favourite comfort food/beverage.

    Here's a checklist of comfort stuff to stock up on before the monsoons sets in full swing.
