Flying sarees...

So Nameeta was here with her friend last weekend and all we did was shop... well, mostly window shop. While we were picking up sarees for the people back home we noticed this...


Can you believe that, Iron Man 2 sarees with blouse! That cracked me up. I sure am glad there was no Sherlock Holmes saree out there... that would have been sacrilege.

Well, where exactly is this shop in Chennai ? I sure would like to pay a visit next time - they look like they have mastered marketing with the urban youth ! Which one did u buy ??
It's one of the most crowded shops in T Nagar, Saravana stores. I didn't buy any of them...

Height of marketing!
80% of this stuff comes from the mills in Surat and Ahmedabad.

Any movie or book reviews?

Hope house-construction work is all done!

Cheers,
Mahesh
Hey Mahesh, book/ movie reviews will come soon... just can't find the time to write down stuff. Still settling down in the new place...

Did they have Harry Potter? That would be kickass, no? I like Clash of the 'Taitans' though. Beauty. So did you buy anything? ;-)
Hey Judy, yeah I saw the 'taitans' too... reminded me of a board I saw at a restaurant that had 'amlet' in it, turns out it was just omlette :)

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
