Gandhi Jayanthi came and went by. Why can't someone make a new Gandhi film? With all due respect to Ben Kingsley and Attenborough, it was aired for the umpteenth time on TV.
Anyway I explained to Anush about Gandhi and she summarised "Oh so Gandhi thaatha helped to make Chak de India ?" I think I need to give her more history lessons.
At Vanilla Place ( Anush thinks it is"plays") she helped make this kumkum box- I like the metaphor( vethalai paaku- betel leaf and nut ) used by them.
We visited Nageswara park, Mylapore for the first time and loved it. I cannot believe it is in the middle of the city and so well maintained. I understand concerts also happen here. Next on my list of things to do.
As I had time to kill while her class was on, I got a foot massage done and also went to Rangachari and blew up money on ready made kurtas under the brand Fashion Hut. Cool cat huh!?
We went for a golu ( first of the season) and Anush was dazzled. More excited she was by the cat we met up in the building which she carried ( quite carefully) and blew kisses to and ran all the way down the car park!! I requested her to put the not so excited kitty down. Then told her she could pat it and so on....it was delight to watch them.
Frutoso is a juice- sandwich shop - a less expensive version of Greams road Fruit shop in Velachery opposite Rex fashions, below Srushti. Excellent juices and a cute little mascot- a Lemur. I did not know much about them ( except that I had seen them in some animation film) but did learn along with Anush who insisted it was a cat- I tried to explain it looked more like a rat but well.
