Congratulations, nice piece, but it's been done before and you know it. May be the demands of the client.

Your Kerala travelogue on the other hand - both pieces put together - is different. And very very good.

Isn't it great to see your name in print? Congratulations! And I love your first name. I'm now going to imagine you as a petite, curvalicious astral dancer whose hips can launch a thousand sighs ....

See, I had been reading your blog for quite some time. The I read this piece in the Indian express, which I subscribe to. Now when I read that piece in the papers, I didn't think it was the good old shoefiend in a different avataar. Now that I do... it makes me feel good that I like you both online and off!
