Day 92 of 100 Happy Days – How we charged our phones

He is a walking encyclopedia who was consulted by most of his colleagues. Not just in his field,… Continue reading Day 84 of 100 Happy Days – When Malayalam calendar crossed seven seas

Day 3 of 100 Happy Days – Lavang Latika

One of the perks of marrying a North brought up South Indian foodie husband was the opening to the world of many different varieties of dishes, which I haven’t even heard of. Rotis had only a guest role in my house, say once in 2 months or so. We prefer having rice / usual South Indian breakfast… Continue reading Day 3 of 100 Happy Days – Lavang Latika
