What would be a nice wedding gift?

Had a four day weekend for Diwali.... and this city really does celebrate diwali in a grand way.
Saw these cute little diya (lamp) designs outside a shop... I am going to get one of these design making kits when I go home.

Had to select the wedding invitation cards for Arun's wedding, so Saturday was spent working on the invitation script, deciding the pattern and the designs. I am already excited thinking about all the weddings coming up.... I have to start buying gifts. So people who are getting married please tell me what you would really like.
P.S:Charmaineeee you can give it a rest, your wedding is not anytime soon.

I'm giving you the list now so that you can start saving money.
1.Washing Machine
2.Dish Washer
3.A Maid

thats all for now
Charmaine and nameeta, you guys will never improve. And nameeta, slave system does not exist in this age... a maid, it seems! Megh's these kits are not there in Nagercoil. There they follow the old fashioned way, squatting.

Appletini, yeah I wish people had asked me what I wanted when I got married. I have so many gifts stacked at home, that I really do not want. (And all you people who do not tell me what you want, will end up getting one of these gifts).

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…

Avila and Fatima

The next day after an early breakfast we set out to visit Avila, which is about an hour's drive from Madrid.
A video of the landscape in Spain... Here, we've just reached Avila... these Walls of Avila were completed between the 11th and 14th centuries and they are the city's defining image. We had a lovely guide, Maria, and she took us around this quaint city explaining about the fortress and the cathedrals.
Another video depicting the welcoming sounds of Avila... the constantly chirping birds over the walled city of Avila are quite captivating, they seem to beckon you in. Avila's charm...  The sun, spilling her beams... 
The church of St. Teresa of Avila Inside the church, mass was just getting over... The chapel dedicated to St. Teresa
The main square in Avila
So after checking out the church of St. Teresa and the museum where her finger is displayed, we started on our way to Fatima in Portugal which is about a five hour drive from Avila.

Stopped on the way to have a …
