One thing that we managed to do on this trip was to meet and chat with two blog buddies.
Took the kids to visit PK in Chennai and visited Kavi in Mumbai on a busy office day.
It was great catching up with them. It is one thing to share ideas over the net and another to meet face to face over a cup of coffee and chat.
These guys could easily pass for brothers of mine. There is a level of tacit understanding of why we says things the way we do that always beats me.
These guys are my eyes and ears in India as much as those gtalk conversations with my brother and parents. That said, it was interesting to see their take on the two cities we have come to love, albeit with reservations on my part.
These guys set me straight when it comes to accepting Chennai or Mumbai for the good of it and ignoring what bothers me. At least they showed me glimpses of how they do the ignoring bit.
Next time it is their turn to visit us here...
