Perseverance doesn't always pay off ...

April 22nd, 2006


This hen at home likes to lay it's egg in my sister(nameeta's) room. It circles all round the house, tries all the various entrances and somehow manages to enter the house and it heads straight towards her room. It climbs onto her chair (where nam throws her clothes, once she is done wearing them .... yeah, nam thinks and acts like paris hilton) and lays her egg among nam's clothes, you can see the egg near her feet in the picture. Then the hen stands up and starts clucking and making all sorts of noises ... untill somebody removes the egg, then she will gladly jump down after making sure her egg is safe.



Mom doesn't like the hen laying her eggs on the
clothes, so she put her in this box ...... I kinda
felt sad for her. But what do you know ...
she's a real gal !!! She posed beautifully
for these picture.


Anyway the sibling's meet turned out surprisingly well ..... the kids were rather outspoken and candid. It was fun .... much better than any parents meeting!

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

A Corpse in the Ground

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
Picked up this cream and chapstick at the Padua …
