And not just that, she got me an incredibly engaging wooden cat which works like a jigsaw and turns into a jewelery box. ( see in set in the above pic)
Anush assumed it was for her and I was surprised that she mastered dismantling and putting it together before her dad came back that night.
We attended a wedding at MRC hall, of a relative from my mother's side. This is the first time I visited that hall and it is splendid. There are ramps for the handicapped, clean spacious lifts, anti skid and dry loos, the ac works like a dream, the staff is courteous, the parking is ample and so on. . .
Ganesh - Kumaresh were the performers that night and that was simply beautiful. See Anush's severely engrossed expression as she observes them. But i do wonder how these artists are okay with all the noise around??!!
In terms of the return gift I was glad to see wooden parrot key chains instead of a steel/ plastic dabba.
Somehow food in marriages/ functions in Chennai is never made as brilliantly as at home/ restaurants or even to the level of B'lore or Mumbai. Even if the spread is lavish, the taste is never up to the mark. Or maybe just my luck, that in the last 10 years in Chennai, just 2 large functions where I thought the food was good.
