I'm back !

Hi all!

We are back after a fantastic vacation in India. Despite the soaring temperatures of the summer season in India, we had a fabulous time and a very relaxing vacation.

We visited venerable Delhi, vibrant Chennai and verdant Cochin. Visited a lot of friends and relatives, shopped, ate, relaxed and just chilled out (figuratively speaking !!)

I spent a total of 8 weeks in India and it just flew by so fast! So many things to do and so little time to do them :(

Thanks to all of you who wrote to me while I was away from blogger. It is nice to be missed!!

I am amazed to see so many new blogs come up in the time that I was away. It seems like new ones are being launched everyday. And the blog events ??? oh my, it seems like there is one everyday!!
I'm going to have a hard time just catching up with all the blogs and the updates. My own blogroll needs serious updating!!

I missed blogging and even though I didn't want to come back from my vacation, coming back to blogging makes it a bit bearable!

Hey Saffron,
Welcome back to the world of blogging!
You have a beautiful blog, done up in light, pleasing colours. Was very appealing to go through. Your picture gallery is also very impressive. I absolutely loved the sand laddoo, and the story that followed it. The picture has been shot so aesthetically, that I did mistook it for a whole wheat laddoo , until I read the caption "not edible". It is indeed therapeutic to submit ourselves to a state of gay abandon once in a while, and have a whale of a time with our kids. Unbeknown to them, kids teach us many a lesson!
Your write up on melting pot is quite humourous and easy to read!
