Mummy’s Experiments: Random Shots

It is exam-time in Mummy’s Medical college, which is the reason she is working overtime. Poor Mummy, she hardly seems to find time to even get a good sleep, she is so worried about having to get up early and leave. We hate it and so does she.
We wish these days will just hurry up and pass.

Our posts have been few and far apart and now you know why. Not to mention how far behind we are in visiting and commenting on all our friend’s blogs. Mummy just about manages to check her facebook and mail messages in case something important turns up and that’s it.
Of course, we always hopefully glance through our blog comment box!!!

Oh! To return to normalcy! We want so much to catch up.

Mummy says heaps of THANKS for all your wishes, care and concern. She is fine now (apart from walking around zombie eyed from not getting her usual quota of 8 hours sleep!)
We did give her a lot of gooey-nose-kisses, Bookerman and Asa style which she says helped a lot.

For now, we have put together a compilation of pictures from different times in the last year. These are Mummy’s attempts to capture the various faces of our country, during our cross-country road trips.

A family, in a tractor, carrying home the day’s harvest. This was taken while passing through a village in Rajasthan.


This Oil-Tanker had 44 tyres!! We slowed down alongside it to count! How do they manuover these things through the hills, we wonder…

An ingenious way of roasting peanuts…the earthen pot filled with burning coals roasts the nuts closest and keeps them warm. A roadside vendor’s stall photograhed in Gwalior, Madhya pradesh 

An old farmer tending to his bullocks, clicked somewhere in Madhya Pradesh

A dash of colour on the dry, arid highway as we passed through Maharastra.

A  Hotel by night, in the middle of a Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh. No, we did not see any tigers though we did prick up our ears at some distant growls.

A temple by night, on the outskirts of Delhi.

The following are pictures from a resort Mummy and Daddy had gone to. The eating arrangements in the middle of the pool made Mummy miss us very much. How we would have loved to make a splash!! The garden was designed to resemble a tropical forest.

And finally, US! 

Hope you liked our pictures today.
With love, wags and promises to get back to you soon,
