The 3-Week Trip

It's been a very long time since I posted anything in here. I have been busy in my work, with releases and support. To add to the busy life, we (me and my family) had a 3 week vacation to India, to attend my brother-in-law's wedding. 3 weeks went like 3 days!!!

This time, we went out of my home town, Trivandrum to visit my Mom and my Sis in Chennai. This was the second time I visited Chennai as an adult.

Needless to say, Chennai is a busy city. Very busy. Well, not as Mumbai, where I had spent almost 4 years. But Chennai is a rapidly developing city. Chennai has always had the habit of embracing change very quickly.

We spent only 4 days in Chennai, which according to my brother-in-law, is not at all enough. According to him, we have not even seen the city; we just had a peek at it :-)

Choolamedu, T-Nagar, Spenser Plaza, Center City, Anna Nagar were the few places we could cover in 4 days.

After returning from Chennai, we had a trip to Pattazhi, a village, which is 2 hours drive from Trivandrum. Pattazhi is famous for its Devi Temple. Driving through the disappearing paddy fields reminded me of the urbanization of villages in India. At least in Kerala, villages are disappearing, losing their charm. Skyscrapers are invading the innocence of the villages. Well, I am not complaining, though!

On the other hand, Kerala is getting sophisticated. The children and youngsters have their attitudes straight. There is money flowing and they know what they want and where they wanted to go. That's so different when I was young!

Time flew, and here we are back to Harrisburg. And back to work. Back to the world of Classes, Inheritance and daily builds!
