First of all, sorry for the delay in replying. Actually we had seen your writing in blog earlier about Calicut Dog Show where, Guhan's dog breeding made Pickcy the proud winner of two prizes. We are very happy to note the same and congrats to Guhan for this marvellous feat of Pickcy. Today we have seen your other musings and really hats off to you, you have become a good writer of travellogue and describer of wealth of South IndianTemples & its architecture. During our visit to Palakkad in 1999,we had theopportunity of visiting Manapally Kavu, Mohana's parents kuladeivam. I find you have adopted the Deity as your kuladeivam.We noted your visit to Bangalore and Indiranagar where I had the opportunity to stay with you in Sri Venkitadri, which unfortunately , I note is demolished now and spent some of my very memorable part of life. You have mentiuoned about Menons, whom we had the opportunty of meeting them when he was posted as Commissioner of Chottanagpur Division in Ranchi. We had invited him to be the Chief Guest of a function in Ranchi Malayalee Association, when I was the Chairman of the school management committee of Kairali School,which Malayalee association was running. I had introduced myself as Chithappa's nephew and we had come closer. When Chithappa & chithi visited Ranchi from Jamshedpur at that time, we had taken them to Menon's house and had a grand dinner. So on reading your last few musings, we find there are many things of common interest. But I do not have the patience like you to write like this and also I find you have squeezed in lot of time from your work to write also. Very good.Now coming to other things, we are fine here. It is more than one month since our return from India afterVinu's marriage. Kunju is doing her internship in Mumbai staying with her grandparents. Vinu & Shweta are fine in the US. Hope you are hearing regularly from Bhavna & Rohit. We saw a few photos of Mira. She looks like a doll and very cute.How is Guhan. He must be busy with his kennel now. Our namskararams to Shobha manni's father. Hope Chithappa Chithi are fine in Chennai. Pl conveyour namaskarams to them. Did you go for Sekhar's Grihapravesam on 22nd Jan. Our regards to Shobha manni.
With best regards Natarajan
