Back to my trip to India...

I found these photographs at my Grandma's house at Madurai.

My Grandmother at left side before her wedding !!

A Wedding Greeting given to my Grandfather !! Posted by Hello

Click on the wedding greeting to enlarge and read !! . It dates back to 1925. Phrases related to The Indian Independence struggle like "Vande Matharam ","Jawaharlal Nehru ku Jay " "Mahatma Gandhiku Jay" and "Bharatha deviyin pathame thunai" can be seen.


A must see place....

I just fell in love with the beauty of this place .. THE CATSKILL MOUNTAINS.. .
A perfect spot for fishing, camping and trekking !! Its in upstate NY , a 3 hour drive from the city. I could imagine how amazing the forest looks in autumn,winter and spring....
One other thing i noticed is that : i never saw any DESI's around !! Namma makkal is always seen in NYC, niagara falls but not here !! A must see place Indeed !!

Beautiful Drive....!!

FYI: The instantaneous responses reflect an individuals state of mind and their personal experience . Here, the Popular response is "follow the leader" and the unique response is by the one that thinks "out of the box"..Its all about Human Psychology !!


Seems like none can beat us even when it comes to reading blogs...!!

At chennai, i spoke with Praveen , Harish ,and Dr.Sophia regarding a mini bloggers meet.But,due to time constraints and vacation plans of Praveen,Harish we were unable to meet.
With his usual wit,Harish replied to me in one of his emails:

"AND i got ferrero rocher for ya folks.."

Oru SMS joke :

My American Neighbors had comeover to my home last evening just for a chat about my trip to India. I gave them few Indian Handicrafts and offered some cookies + Thattai +Murukku + Tea ..
They relished Thattai and likened it to Indian Version of Tortilla chips..
What a combo of Thattai + Salsa..
Btw ,They asked the English equivalent name for them !!Can anyone suggest me a name for Thattai ,Murukku ,seedai ??
And, They also liked the Idiyaapam that i made and called it "String Hoppers"..Indian
brethren of Noodles !!
