    Thanks for your really warm comment on my site. I'm not much good at anything, really, except writing and making people laugh, and not terribly good at that either. But yes, I have a great family and wonderful friends. And at least one good blog friend in you, I guess. (Unless you were just being polite). And my poor, long suffering wife Sheela, endures all my stupid "she terrifies me" jokes with equanimity. Though I wouldn't be surprised to find strychnine in my soup one of these days!

    I live and work in Mumbai, India, where I run a small outfit manufacturing automotive components. I have two sons, Vyaas aged 12 and Gautham aged 10. Both love me very much of course but have, this in keeping with their generation, a low opinion of my intellect.

    Perhaps a glossary of the Indian words appearing in that article might be in order. "Daal" is an Indian staple food, a bit like lentils. It is made into a thick soup and mixed with rice. "Malpuri" and "Rabdi" are species of Indian sweets of which I am inordinately fond. The former, a thick pancake cooked in butter, the latter is sweetened milk thickened to a cream like consistency by stirring it oveer a low flame for like days together.

    Now you know how an indian lives.
