In Chennai

one word: Hot!! :)

its an absolute mystery to me how people can choose to live here... i wouldnt buy a house here... i would expect to be PAID to live here :)

But Raji aunty (Harish's and Kavi's mother) makes it all worthwhile by cooking up an avalanche of the most delicious dosas!!

i finished reading 2 books today... have been reading one for some time now, its called the Unwaba Revelations by samit basu... its the third part of his gameworld trilogy, and while the other 2 were absolutely fantastic (The simoqin Prophecies and The Manticore's Secret), this one drags along... one big fantasy was after another interspresed with a few extremely funny and ingineous pages! I would keep reading to get to those parts... a very disappointing book, given the author's earlier work... its a good read in the toliet or a long boring journey, but not much else...

The other is called Garlic and Saphires bu Ruth Reischl who used to be the New York Times food critic... utterly delicious and almost unputdownable for any person who enjoys food and some great humour... the only big problem i had with this book was that she talks about alsmot only non veggie restaurants and almost all the superb recipes in the book are non veg... will see how to convert some of them to veggie versions and post them here after cooking and tasting them for all of you :)... A throughly enjoyable read, i would recomend it quite wholeheartedly...

Cheers to the people who designed and made the Air Conditioner!!

Jai Gurudeva!

Dear Bawa,
Recently came across this blog. I used to feel the same about chennai that somebody should pay me to live in chennai. But somehow the city grows on you the longer you live there. i´ve started to prefer chennai rather than Blore now. Btw, good to know that you are in chennai. Hope you had a good time. Me in germany now, also had a divine time with Guruji, Rishiji & Swamiji last weekend.
