Down but not out

Finally added a piece like this by Aarohi to our kettle collection
My cousin S from the US was here for a week. Anush enjoys his company but competes with him when I have a conversation or when he chips in in some game to help her out.

S was the first baby in the family after me and that too after over 10 years. I even had a mild case of sibling jealousy which I had been too proud to display. He has turned into a remarkable young man who values relationships and is already doing his bit for society. He is well travelled, open to new experiences and very independent for his age ( 21 yrs).
I hope he is able to achieve his promise to himself- to get all the family folks in the US to come over for a family reunion in India with in the next couple of years. The last time it happened was at my wedding, almost 10 yrs ago.

I leave you with a pic of Anush in this lovely dress from S that she wore to a birthday party last evening.


Was in Bangalore yesterday. Relative to Chennai, really pleasant weather but nightmarish traffic!

On the flight, it was really amusing/ almost annoying to see the mad rush to turn on cell phones and get up as soon as the craft landed( despite warning to the the contrary)

I wonder why this tearing hurry and behaviour from seemingly educated people?

And for a change, the air hostess was really firm with one of the passengers and I heard her say to her " Madam, this puts not only your life at risk but all of ours as well. Pl turn off your cell immediately."

And yes, the new arrival section at the Chennai airport stinks!

Its indeed annoying to see everyone making a mad dash to come out of the and hubby always wait for the entire crowd to disembark before we even get up from our seats...I seriously wonder why they do that...all businesspeople holding some key positions in top corporates....sigh!
