    Hi Vidu,

    How are you? we will miss small small items when we are away from our place. Is it not? We would have enjoyed them in our school days or college days. If we want to show them or get them for our children means it is difficult in some country other than ours.

    For example as u said, aavin milk, 'panju mittai', mittai watch, kamar kat:) etc.,

    Thank you for your mail. And expecting your FB.
