Christmas in Nagercoil...

Christmas season in Nagercoil is always exciting, a certain type of magical warmth fills the air and lifts the spirits. The town seems to glow with all the star lights and serial lights that adorn most houses, it's a simple kind of beauty and it never ceases to amaze me. 
The Nativity scene at home...
The Christmas tree...

An angel declaring the good news...
Infant Jesus Church, Nagercoil, decorated with stars...
 The crib inside the church...  
One of the smallest and most beautiful nativity scenes, saw this at a father's home... he made this out of scrap material lying in his backyard. 
The nativity scene in Carmel school...
The nativity scene in Little Flower School...
Houses decorated for Christmas...
The holiday season made even more beautiful by my brothers birthday... here is the bacon pizza I baked for them (their names start with M & V, can you make them out on the pizza?)

Have an amazing New Year's everybody... wishing you all a blessed and wonderful year ahead.

The Danny effect and the Cooper effect

With all the free time I have now (thanks to Cooper) I thought of writing something here.  This is Cooper, a friend's dog, and whenever I go home to Nagercoil, we generally hang out together, talking and taking Cooper for long walks in the colony. This time was no different, we were on our walk when this stray little street dog started barking and I was holding cooper's leash... my hand in that loop when Cooper suddenly became way excited than usual and took off after the stray like Flash on steroids. He dragged me along and I couldn't keep up; I stumbled, fell on the bad road and bruised myself.  And since I had nothing better to do, I made a collage of the wounds to send to my sister... who found it hilarious that I fell. So anyway, went to the doc, got my tetanus shot and now I'm just taking it easy for the next few days. And one person has been constantly on my mind since this incident, Danny.

I met Danny about 12 years ago in Santhi Nilayam, the special school I …

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…
