It's been a long time since I posted anything on my blog. I was in India for a month and just got back last week. A lot of things happened while I was in India and it kept me busy and away from the blog. It was a welcome distraction and now it feels to good to be back posting something.
During my stay in India, we spent a week in Kodaikkanal which provided a welcome respite from the Chennai heat. Immediately after our stay at the hill station, we chose to make amends and visit places like Madurai, Tuticorin and Kerala to get our bodies warmed up. So, spent a day with my uncle and aunt, grandfather and also visiting our family deity in Kottarakara. It was a special visit this time to the temple as there was a festival taking place and we reached on time for the concluding ceremony. It's a small temple and it was filled with people dressed prettily, majestic elephants, mucic band playing classical music and lots of atmosphere. There were firecrackers going off in the background and music blaring through the loudspeakers.
Once back in Chennai, it was back to more mundane stuff. I also kept myself busy by attending my dad's music school and refreshed my musical skills. Met up with a few relatives and friends. Here are some snaphots from my recent trip to India.
