Lemon Rasam

Life with an infant is cherishable everyday "chinna" comes up with something new, he finds something new in every detail. And his endless laughs and giggles keep me occupied. Well thats all the reason I have and for some reason I dint wanna keep that from blogging. Hopefully when Chinna starts walking he is not gonna give me anytime for any chores so I am utilizing all his nap times for the time being.

About the Kaaya Podi, my previous post, I gotta lotta mails have answered a few while I write to the rest of the mails too. Glad that you guys found it informative and useful. I will make sure that I post more such posts in the future.
