    Dear Sudha,

    Nice to see you here after a long time. No after a lo......ng time. Have been reading your blogs and quite happy about the appreciation you get here from the ILites.

    You are quite right, Sudha. It is the mindset of our people that they do not see anything good close to them. An MBA, IIM, IIT all these things have a kind of sex-appeal for our students. Whereas a real-life home maker managing her household with a shoestring budget, managing relationships as diverse and at times as destructive as that of mil, fil, bil, sil apart from sustaining a marriage which does not have much charm, and in the midst of all these, giving the best to her children.

    For a multi-tasking person like this haggling is just one of the several portable skills in her survival kit.
    thanks once again, Sudha.
    regards,
    sridhar

    My Dear GFs,
    Just returned from Ganesh Mandir. With a prayerful mind I will be posting the First Episode of A LOVE STORY.
    Eagerly, anxiously, nervously waiting for your responses.

    Hi Chitra mam-first of all let me tell you i have never enjoyed reading anything as much as i enjoyed reading about your mylapore description. Ive lived there a few years when i got married. Loved the place but i wish i knew someone like you to tell me about all those lil nooks n crannies and the wonderful shops there. I want to ask u where i can find marrapacchi dolls in chennai/mylapore and also the palankuzhi wooden bar. Thx and do keep writing about chennai-we plan to return to india in a few months and ahve bought a place in the DLF property on ethiraj salai-u'r writing makes me keen to get back and start enjoying all what i missed out on earlier :)
