The weekend that was not


This weekend , was generally very busy.

We explored our ilaaka on foot. Found that we are just a walk away from our key needs.
Introduced Anush to badminton and carrom finally.
Also a new type of obstacle climbing and reintroduced swimming ( as in splashing about)

We were busy with the paper mache art challenge. But I guess we will not make it in time!! Still I will update on our rather messy efforts and as always we had fun doing it.

Met a friend recently, who does not own a car since he believes he can do without one.
Met a couple of bloggers who do not have cable TV or even a TV at home

Everyone is happy though! Different strokes for different folks.

add me to the list that thinks a car is not needed !! This time, in India I used the public transport as much and loved it !!! the kids loved the train and autos and I loved the all spruced up PTC buses which I earlier used to hate after using the BEST buses....
The people touch is amazing in public transport and I have been touched by many kind strangers' gestures whenever I was stuck with my kids !!!

It is not necc out of choice...this friend can totally afford one or two cars even but it is his value system ...


on phone- we did not have one till i was in my 10th std or so... how is that?

i wud be happy without TV considering that I dont get to watch at all nowadays
except for being a cheap babysitter at times it doesn't serve any useful purpose for me!

ya we got our phone in my second year of medicine[phone we could afford from my 10 th standard but car no]
ya I mean to say we went with out phone and a cable for many years though we could afford
but car we could not
so I was thinking car is a luxury to the middle class still now in India right
now it is clarified about your friend about his concept of not owning one though he could
artnavy your girls are very cute
my little one is 2 years
we are from Andhra
great site and good taste in all the art works your are having around your house
bye dear
