Memories of Madras

I have, I think, reconciled myself to an ambivalent attitude towards Madras. I don't know if I will ever be able to articulate correctly or even coherently what I fully feel about the place. I swing like a monkey on crack, I tell you, in my highs and lows in Madras. And I always leave with more than just a pang of regret. I suppose that's mainly because I don't have enough time to resolve my space there... but in any case... I'm sure I'll mull this over some more until I know.

I didn't take very many photographs in Madras this time but what I did take, I am really quite happy with. This is only a sampler. The stories and proper photos should follow next week. I hope you're checking the photoblog though. There's an entire series on Mahabalipuram going on right now. I'll get to the flower market and other stories shortly.

My sincere thanks to Plain Jane, who found time in her insane schedule, to make the collage for me.

Nicely done. BTW, my parents have been patronizing your store for all CD/book purchases baby-related :)

:)I came here to scold you for making me do the collage and not put it up as you promised, so now I know not how to react! Miss you mother hen!

There is something terribly wrong grammatically in that sentence, isn't there?

@Haiku Poems: Yes, that they are.

@Parth: Thanks! Let me know if they're looking for anything specific or if they just want to have a look at some of the gems that often lay hidden. I'll mail you my number.

@Plain Jane: See! Always wanting to shout at me! :D
