India Trip 2009

Day 2 – An evening in Lajpat Nager, New Delhi
Lajpat Nager bridge, the big bridge has been completed. We spent 30-40 min to find non-full parking. People managing those parking lots have better capabilities of arranging cars then me arranging toy cars.

BTW, Gol gappe are 15 Rs per plate, Papadi chat is now 25 Rs. Macdonald was fully occupied selling softy for 25 Rs, French fries for 45 Rs and meal for one for 118 Rs.

Day 1 – The Travel Day
Start of the travel could not be better as R&D both came to drop us at the airport. Such a great blessing to have them as our friend. 

Is it just me or other feel the same that the air hostage in TV commercial and the air hostage in a real plan are two all together different entities? Both look wise and behavioral wise. One of the air hostage even shown some rudeness on a passenger who spill water in a 98% Indian passenger AA flight. 2% may be the staff members.

Vedic started writing a journal book – Trip to India. Will post pictures of that book soon.

It is awesome to watch Vedic & Soham talking, interacting and playing together.


  1. Hats off to you. I too am going to make India trip soon but I doubt I have your discipline to catalog the same. But I love this and will be looking forward to read more. Btw, I noticed that you hardly cover Rakhi. I am sure there will be naach gaana inn your family gatherings - will look forward for those pics. Have a safe and fun trip.
