Trip Diary Tidbits!

So many parks with slides, swings and walking trails(and wow! so many walkers!!)!!!

Impressive online train ticket booking system. Order online (with a Rs. 40 service charge) and the tickets arrive by courier in 2 days!!

The 'Anju Maadi Kattadams' of Usman road can clothe the entire mankind!! "Oru naal podhuma..." and aadi thallupadi or aaLa thallupadi?? Yemma!!

I know, I said this but watching 2 even 3 at a time isn't a bit too much?!!

NRIs are next only to 'theeviravaadeess' and 'arasiyalvaadhees' in getting bashed. Onga oora, enga oora, namma oora??

Last but not least, a very sad revelation that my system doesn't handle kalyana saapadu anymore!! :(

My thoughts exactly on paras 1, 3 and 4.. BTW, 'onga oora..' segment puriyale.. explain plz..

On ur last tidbit, paavam neengga.. I was also worried about myself, since my system was showing danger signs after eating spicy Indian food of New Jersey restaurants.. I was pleasantly surprised that I could get back to my 'Mayabazaar' form during my brother's wedding.

Enna unmaiyaana vaarthaigal... Infact I stay only in Bangalore but I still couldnt call it as "En Ooru".. Chennai or Coimbatore is what I call "En Ooru".. Everyone of us staying away from "home town" will have this feeling.. good thoughts Aparna..

Raju, have you watched "Hyderabad Blues"? I am in a state like how Varun says, "where is home?". And in a rare slip of the tongue, I say "enga oorule...", "namma ooru" people will pounce on me saying, "ippo adhu onga ooru-a". But all other times my place of residence will be refered to as "onga ooru"!!!

Anurama, welcome! The problem is 'namma ooru' people refer the place I live in as 'onga ooru', and 'indha ooru' don't consider me 'namma ooru(kaari)'!!
