Me back :)

Feels good to be back!..back to the calm and normalcy of living.

I say that because of those super eventful 4 weeks spent in India.
Every single day was planned to its very minute – Where to go, whom to visit, what to do, how to commute. Phew!

The First 10 days in H’s place were really tight packed with activities, to say the least.Two family functions, the preparations, the trips to meet half a dozen uncles and aunts and of course the overwhelming amount of shopping.

Given the summer heat in Chennai, I am glad we survived the entire thing to be back safe 😉

On the other hand, the opportunities to show off my colorful ethnic wears, the delicious spicy food ( which we devoured like hungry pigs), the heart warming good wishes and blessings we received from so many elders during the functions – made up for it.

The next one week spent at my home was the best part of the entire trip. Duh! That’s expected of you to say, you say? Well, not just me, H agrees to that too. Hmmm..Glancing back at that one week, the most I recall is –

Eating 

Lots and lots of chatting with Amma

Eating

Running around clicking pictures and smelling flowers in my garden

Eating

Silly arguments with Appa

Eating

Irritating poor bro trying hard to agitate him ( how does he remain so calm with a character like me??)

Eating

Visiting cousins, uncles and aunts nearby

Eating

Playing in the gushing river waters ( absolutely loved it!)

Eating

Shopping in the little old stores for insignificant things

And..

Eating, of course.

Amma took the week off to cook all my favorite dishes..and she delivered it like a mission! Breakfast- Lunch- Snacks- Dinner. Breakfast- Lunch- Snacks- Dinner. Repeat. Nothing I said/did could stop her anyways. Thanks Amma, You are the Bestest!!

The last few days in Bangalore were super hectic, but fun all the while. Met at least a dozen bunch of friends for lunch or dinner. There was lots of chatting up and laughing. Bangalore still remains my favorite city, but could have done without that killing traffic jams and dust. Arrrgh! Everybody who talks of Bangalore plays this same old tune these days, no? When will the stupid government wake up from the slumber??

All plans well executed and a happy trip overall, I should say.

But, yes, feels good to be back. Known usualness and mental calm is much deserved sometimes 🙂

Edited to Add: Some pics from the trip, as promised :

    Yay, yay, you’re back. If I could pick one place in the world to visit, it would be Bangalore; I have friends that live there, and dream about spending a month with them. I want to shop and eat and eat and eat there too. Love the pix; I think you should have your own photo dump blog…because I am waiting to see more!
