Tuesday, November 14, 2006

I am back.... (I think and I hope!)

Thanks for all of you who had been visiting my blog... though I had not updated it for a long time.

I had this post in draft-mode, half-typed for more then 2 months... never got time to get back to it.... I thought 'Better Late then Never' - Enjoy!

Ganesh Chaturthi is an important festival at my place. Since this year it fell on Sunday, I had time to celebrate it properly.... .... with lot of goodies to eat of course. But I still miss what my mom makes. I tried my best, with little success and lot of flops.
