It is beastly hot!!

“It is beastly hot”
“The weather is certainly oppressive, sir!”

The PG Wodehouse aficionados amongst you will remember this exchange between Bertie and Jeeves from “The Sermon Handicap”

Well, turns out Nikita does not only want to see Didu, but she wants to visit the small water tank Dadu (grandfather) had built with all the small fishes in it. Not sure how small things stick in early minds, but both the girls are totally taken in by the small fish in that water tank. Every time they visit, the fish in general tip the weighing scales way past their limits thanks to all the food that they feed them thru the day.

So, the plan is after we are done getting holed up in a hotel with Didu, we will all go to Durgapur to get her back home.

In case, you were wondering how hot Durgapur will be, the following might help.

Some cold Thums Up, anyone?

One more journey to India… this time with a twist

Niki had a special request after graduating from high school. “I want to go see Didu“.
Didu means grandmother (maternal) in Bengali.
That started some desperate planning trying to squeeze some days between house moves and office work.

Didu, herself was very worried about our trip. “How are they going to be here in this heat?”.
The solution was that Didu offered to to travel to Kolkata where the four of us are going to be holed up in a hotel.
That would be some quality time between the granddaughter and grandmother.

The journey commenced an hour back.

Summer is coming…

That can mean only one thing… time to start collecting new funny T-shirts. (You can see last season’s here).

This one says “Tequila might not be the answer, but it is worth a shot” 🙂

Got this as a gift from my friends behind the bar at Senor Patron.
