Hyderabad, Bangalore, Poona, Tirupati.
Kanchipuram saris and gold jewelry.
Sweat, sweat. Mehndi and makeup.
Piping hot coffee in a double steel cup.
Relatives and friends, faces and smiles.
Pats on the back for crossing the miles.
Good smells from the kitchen
Before getting out of bed
"Burgundy in your hair
And none on your forehead!!!"

Shopping, shopping, shopping
Talking, talking, talking
Eating, eating, eating
and then some more.
An Indian summer wedding
Has come knocking on my door.

Off to the Mothership. Will be back in a couple of weeks!

though i m not sure if you will ever go through so many comments and reach this one.. but i had to tell you that i simply loved your blog. its insightful (with lines like: girls rarely share for input, they share because they can’t hold it in) along with humorous.

I'm back! I'm back! Jet-lagged and over-fed :)

LOL @ Zoheb's comment!

vc : What I meant is : I have burgundy or actually red streaks in my hair. But I rarely sport a bindi - which is quite a no-no for a married woman in South India.

em, pradyot, :), neha : Welcome! first time here I notice...will check out your blogs now...

thanks to the people who blogrolled me. It is a good thing, non?
