I am back :))

Yes, i am back ;). First of all, my sincere apologies for disappearing without leaving a note.....Thanks to y'all for your warm enquiries and endearing notes and emails.....it was really very touching.....i just got back y'day from a short trip to India, my home.....for being with my family and also some professinal stuff. I visited home after three years! and when i reached there, it was like i had never been away.....

The days (actually cpl. of weeks) before the trip were really busy with lots of work to be finished. I was doing late nighters and juggling too many things. A very dear friend of mine, MD was also visiting me. Were it not for her and Golden Girl's presence and support, i would probably have wilted from stress! I know didn't fulfil this very basic courtesy of leaving a note, but am sure you will understand how it must have been if i couldn't do it.....All that stress and tension vanished once i reached home.....the warm (or scorching hot!) summer, the fruits, the shopping and most importantly the love showered on me by my loved ones were really a bliss :).

I am back with some fun stories and thoughts to share.....Once more, my apologies and sincere thanks to you, the readers of this blog, for being there, for your care and concern. Looking forward to blogging, bloghopping and chit-chat :).

Cheers,
musical.

Hey! Welcome back! Good to hear you had a super time. Did you get your fill of aam? Please do post pictures when you are settled back in your routine again. Looking forward to more yummilicious recipes from you. I'm planning to make your palak kadhi again this week but with rainbow chard. :-) Glad you're back!
