Indian Summer

Back from the heart of mangoes. If I were to describe my 3 week stay in India in 3 words, they would be “Hot, Nostalgic and Mangolicious”!

After all, how I can I be so indifferent to the place where I spent all my formative years?

Three weeks and still limping – that’s how bad I feel in terms of staying out of touch with generally everything. Or should I say, I don’t know what all I have missed because my comfortable routine was disrupted (including blogging).

Within our means, we were able to treat our families in India to a wonderful get together at Goa where the sun was shining, guides were counting and yet we experienced the serene Goa & the laid back Goan culture that we all have heard about. This was our first visit to this beach state and we were happy that we made this trip. Sure thing, we would do it again.

And the journey home was never too long – A flight, a car ride and a train ride later, we were near the banks of Thamiraparani. It was great to brace through the place and people who looked like us and spoke like how I used to a few years ago. The pampering at home never crossed the limits. I had to spend the last week in Hyderabad – sort of working through my vacation. Boy has the city changed or what? More on this – may be later. Soon, it was time to get back to reality.

This time I am just going to share some pictures from the trip and go easy on the words partly because I have so much to catch up on…

Here are some pictures from Goa…

Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
