In India soon :)



Hi all,

Apologies if I have not responded to anyone who has written to me and asked me my travel dates--it is pure oversight. Making amends through this blog post, because I know you would read it for sure! :-)

Many of you wanted to meet me and wanted me to sign your copy of the book. I am reaching Mumbai  on 13th(yes! day after tomorrow!)  noon (Hooray!). I would be leaving on 15th. I am meeting Guru and Shru at this lovely place  (thanks to Guru's suggestion) at  Juhu, Mumbai on 14th (December) morning.  If anyone wants to join us, please let Guru or Shru, know. :-)

I would be in Bangalore from  18th to 22nd. A few of us are planning to meet on 20th (December) morning, at Cafe Coffee Day, Indiranagar, 100 feet road. Prashant  (he won the Royal Challengers Contest and is the Chief blogger of RCB), Prats  and  Varun will be there and Gazal  too. If  you want to join us, please let Prashant or Prats know.

I would be having limited Internet access and so there may be delay in responding to comments. I'd be coordinating about time of meeting with Guru & Shru,(In mumbai) and  Prashant & Prats (In Bangalore).


It is about ten months now since I have been away from India. I am so eagerly looking forward to meeting a few very good friends  and also my lovely niece Gia who just turned 3.

I'm coming home and it feels mighty marvellous! 


This is probably my last post for this year.


So here is wishing you a very merry Christmas and a Happy Happy new year! And if I don't see you in Mumbai or Bangalore, I'll see you here in Jan! :-) 

Oh--and one more thing..Thank you so much for the wonderful support I have been getting here. :-)



Cheers
Preeti

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
