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? ;-)

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.

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 …
