Bhushan back in US and Manjiri still in India

Family time with manju maushi

Manjiri maushi arrived the day before yesterday (25th may 2005) by metrolink luxury buses. The name 'luxury' didn't fit quite well in the title of the bus. With the AC not working, the broken windows, no suspension and an overbooked bus, she did not surely call it a luxorious trip.

Konkan Trip and Mahabaleshwar!

After our Indore trip, we returned back to Mumbai later in the afternoon by air. We had wonderful home cooked meal waiting for us when we arrived home tired and hungry!

Indore Trip

Mumbai-Indore-Mumbai via Jet Airways direct flight and our stay with Agnihotri (mom's uncle) family.

Fun time with the in-laws

It has been about 11 days being in india, and we have already travelled to 3 cities and back to our base of Mumbai (bandra) where bhu's parents live. This has truely a whirlwind of a trip to see family and friends, attend weddings, and sightsee within and outside the cities we are visiting. We arrived in Mumbai in the morning of the 2nd, travelled to pune for the wedding of my cousin sister Vinita and her hubby Nishant (what a beautiful wedding, and they both make a great couple). Spent 3 days with my cousin Medha, jeeja Girish bhai, and children Amol and prachi, and uncle, Kaka.

Day for the Alma Mater

Visited Abhinav Sahakar (now Navajeevan) and IIT-Powai today...

Family Reunion

The day went very well. It started with upmaa for breakfast after a nice long walk with baabaa. phone conversations with Chavan Sir and few other friends followed by at-home guests. Mom had organised "Chaintra-Gauri-haldi-kunku" and guests for that included her yoga teacher, her friends and our neighbors, among many others. Special delight it was to meet grown up kids like Manasi who has now taken up dance as a hobby. Manjiri enjoyed being the suunbaai and jaaubaai with aai-vahinii.

Pune to Bombay pleasure...

Came back to Mumbai via Neeta's Volvo bus - an excellent service that connects suburbs of Pune with suburbs of Mumbai. The best part is that buses leave every half hour and are all AC, (they have a nice slogan - dust free, noise free etc) and it bring you from door-to-door within 4 hours on the new highway.

Glamor and Glitz of a wedding...

Vinita's wedding was spectacular. She is Manjiri's cousin (chulat-chulat bahiiN) and by way of the wedding, we got to see a ton of relatives on Manjiri's father's side of the family. Many had last seen us during OUR wedding back in 2002 and were pleasantly surprised to see us. Took a several family pictures and updated the Family tree sketch I had started after our wedding.

College Lectures: A Boon

If one was to define a lecture, it would be : One hour of the day where the ultra busy engineer gets time to pursue and exhibit his extra-curricular talent. An hour of relaxation and peace. The rare genius is seen, only if found… These qualities would tarnish if it weren’t for the lecturers …
