Happy Karthikai! My favourite festival. Plan to light a lot of lamps this evening.
Anush was very upset that I was tarvelling on work-
" Amma I am okay without surprise. You dont go amma. You stay with me"
This is how much she is willing to forgo for my presence!!And just in case you think I am spoiling her, the surprise is more often than not a tamarind candy or a book or just some interesting piture in a newspaper.
I was in Mumbai yesterday on work- very fleeting trip. But still managed to buy Thepla and Kandvi from JB nagar.
I met a lady on the flight back who had lost her cousin and his family at the Taj shootout. They had been there to celebrate the son's birthday. The daughter has five bullet wounds and is still trying to recover. How traumatic it must be for the survivors. . .
