Ok just a stupid question you went to Hanging Garden, by any chance did you bump into this guy?
Kid

Hey cool travelogue, Sam! Am yet to read beyond page 6 though!
Although, sorry for the 'Indian traffic' response on this thread, I rarely visit threads outside the Vintage/classic car section you know!

Well I dont think its ever a problem learning how to do it as long as you're in India. I dont know bout Bbay but down south if you go to any of the major Saree stores there'll be female staff/salesgirls who'd readily help a lady customer on wearing a Saree.

And I promise you, it's not easy. Not easy at all.
'not your personal experience is it??

Jokes apart, my mom told it indeed wasnt easy when she began wearing them (it was mandatory for female students in Madras Medical college back in the 60s) but not once she got used to it.

I am simply waiting for her pictures of Pritam da dhaba.
I cant wait to check them out too. 'hope its got some of Gogi's classics seen in it!

Woah, I thought Sam was only kidding! Despite being a southie, Ive never seen/heard of Idlis being made that way!

Hiya Stanher -

Page 6? You have a long way to go my friend, lol. This is a long saga.
Getting a salesgirl help you put on a Saree is one thing. If you have to wear it to an occasion, what can you do? Go to the store in a blouse and ask for help hahaha.

I WAS kidding lol. Idlis are not made by using dough and armpits.
But I'm still telling you, you don't want to know how they make the hole in the vada.

Hi sam,
Yeah am looking forward to reading the entire saga once my exams are done (by the 29th this month!)

Hmm, well here's an idea *Bulb*!
When you (I dont mean you literally! ) go to the store to BUY the Saree itself, you can have them teach you how to wear it. 'course that'd mean you'd be stuck at the store a looong time that day learning it again & again till you get it right (and yeah that, as you said, could be difficult) since (again as you said!) you cant walk into the store half-dressed later, asking for help...so best if you dont have any other shopping on your agenda that day! Hehe.

Yeah dude, I knew you were kidding there! Even I was, with my reaction!

To THE ONE

As a fellow foreigner one of the good things I noticed about Indians is their amazing tolerance for one another. India is a difficult place. Things go wrong. People, cars get in each other's way. People do stupid and inconsiderate things. Things that would start a small war, a riot or a gun fight in my country go unheeded, barely acknowledged here. I doff my turban to you, Indian folk.

So, THE, I hope you do not mind me calling you by your first name, I am wondering if there is something you likewise have noticed that was a pleasant surprise, something that made you sit up and take notice about India or Indians?
