Drive home

September 29th, 2005 | By Deepa living in India | More from Deepa

The drive home was fairly relaxing, I slept in the back seat most of the time while mom and dad took turns driving. Stop for lunch at a restaurant with a funny sign! (“Please don’t do drugs”). Well this particular town where we stopped has a big Ashram, and drugs are quite related to worship […]

Tsunami reconstruction

September 27th, 2005 | By Deepa living in India | More from Deepa

Can you imagine having mutton, chicken and fish for breakfast at 7:00 in the morning? I did, and it’s definitely not the usual. Took about a four hour drive to a small village. Stopped at a small orphanage/shelter home for women. The same people are also running a school for about 600 children so we […]

To the coast…Day 2

September 21st, 2005 | By Deepa living in India | More from Deepa

Drove down to Pondicherry (it’s another state/province in India and formerly a French territory) from Chennai, after breakfast. The road was really good and we could actually drive comfortably at a 100 km per hour (a rarity on Indian roads). The scenery was also worth seeing, collectively making it a very pleasant drive. We arrived […]

To the coast…Day 1

September 20th, 2005 | By Deepa living in India | More from Deepa

We planned to leave at 4:00 am, but somehow that didn’t materialize and we left more around six-thirty. The first two hundred Kilom’s were pretty uneventful, I think I slept through most of it in the back seat. But soon enuf the car started acting up and we had to stop and a couple places […]

Rain, rain

Woke up earlier than I wanted to on a Sunday morning, but a girls gotta work! I wish by now I could post a picture of my nose pierce but mournfully it once again didn’t work out (I pierced it on Saturday afternoon and by Sunday morning it mysteriously fell out…WHY? Spent most of Sunday […]

60th Birthday (no, not mine)

September 11th, 2005 | By Deepa living in India | More from Deepa

The most amazing thing about India…is that you can never generalize. Amazingly there is very peaceful coexistence and understanding amidst unbelievable diversity. It was neighbour’s sixtieth Birthday party, a very new experience for me. This party wasn’t designed to be fun (although I thought it was quite fun!) The purpose is to invoke the blessings […]

Been home for a week. No more Jet lag… Been just spending time with the kids and reading lotsa Word. The last five months all the 12-16 year olds have been part of a competition to see who could get the highest number of Activated subscriptions. I have been taking the teens out occasionally, and […]

Getting Real

August 25th, 2005 | By Deepa living in India | More from Deepa

I’m leaving Canada in a few days. It all seems to have gone so fast, but at the same time its seems like it’s been ages. I know that doesn’t seem to make sense but it does to me. I’ve learned so much, changed so much (I hope for the better). Its funny how important […]
