Why do they insist on lining up so many people at airports when it seems that half those people are simply watching the other half do the work?
Mumbai and Chennai airports deserve to be in the list of worst airports among major cities in India – To be specific, those airports that have failed to adapt to the growth..
Mangoes – Delicious. Makes a trip to India in frying pan weather really worth it.
Visited Courtallam. Thoroughly disappointed that more and more non-vegetarian restaurants are cropping up almost in a proud manner. Why is it becoming fashionable to eat meat at the cost of looking down upon vegetarianism?
In spite of the crowd, I enjoyed Courtallam contrary to my fears. It is one place, where once I walk under the gushing waterfall, I forget everything around me. Blissful in a very unique way. Guess you have to grow up in that area to learn to enjoy standing under a waterfall, taking bath in what may be the most direct source of fresh (& clean) water which is falling at probably 1/6th the speed of Niagara and trying to push your way into the heart of the waterfall..
Different kind of experience in Gurgaon under rains this time around. Unfortunately, rains expose the reality behind Indian infrastructure…Doesn’t matter if it is a seemingly well-planned city like Gurgaon or a good old urban downtown, it is such a mess. Yet, there was something that brought a small smile on my face as my cab waded through flooded highways in Gurgaon – Well, a sad smile I should add. A bunch of kids – all standing in line only in their underarms – bare-bodied – swimming in the puddle..
Absolutely surprised and satisfied with my stay at the Courtyard in Chennai. Truly a place I would go back to stay at..Great ambience and stunning service..
As always, left India with a slightly heavy heart, but sort of consoled myself with the fact that since my frequency of visiting India of late has been increasing, I could very well be seeing the next seasonal change in India this year or the following one..
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!
