Combining Tradition & Modernity

The Indian woman has adapted wonderfully - she fulfills her traditional duties at home like cooking & morning pooja draped in her 9 yards sari and in her spare time grabs her net book to connect with her face book friends over a cup of traditional South Indian Kapi (coffee)!

  8. She is dressed in Christmas colors! I thought Indians drank only tea, not coffee. Is coffee grown in India, at all? Coffee is grown in Hawaii. I love Hawaiian coffee, especially Kona.
