Chennai trip: Monday and Tuesday (14th and 15th November)

Yesterday, I went to the party held by the Indo-Polish Chamber of Commerce & Industry in a very good newly built star hotel in G.N Chetty Road near Hotel Residency. My next door neighbour was invited and he wanted me to accompany him and his son to the party. I didnt want to go, but my mother insisted that I accompany them..so had to go! I hate going to parties!The hotel was awesome!I heard that the hotel was built by a minister who also owns 3 colleges!! I dont know from where they get their money from! I spoke to some of the polish people around and was telling them that my PhD supervisor was also a polish..There was a cocktail party initially. They were serving Kebabs, Chicken tikka, Baby Corn bhajjias, Mushroom manchurian,Badam Gheer, drinks etc.. I just had some chicken tikka and my favourite guava juice. Then there was a buffet and I was just cursing myself since I had my lunch at 6:30 pm in the evening and I wasnt hungry at all. The food looked just awesome! Out of the world! The menu consisted of naans, pulovs, roasted chicken in red wine, crispy fish fry, paneer masala, vegetable manchoorian, bread butter pudding etc.. I just had the fish fry and the bread butter pudding..The fish fry was just awesome!

Today morning went to the Tiruverkadu Karumari Amman temple along with my aunty. She was doing a 108 sanghabhishekam today and so I accompanied her to the temple. Unfortunately, her husband got a mild heart attack! He was admitted in the ICU in Dr. Cherian's heart hospital.. He is undergoing loads of tests...I was thinking that I should also get some tests done especially the treadmill ECG..After the sanghabhishekam, the iyer gave us chakra pongal and puliyodharai. Man, I just love the chakra pongal..Loads of ghee and its too sweet..I can still smell ghee on my fingers.. yum yum ( Kutty priya - vaayir eriyutha :)) )...
I cant stand puliyodharai though :)...

I have decided not to go to any restaurants for this week! I am on a diet now for a week!

I may meet Adi today if he is free :)...Will keep u updated :)

@Arjuna :

A delight indeed it is to read your daily regular reports on your India trip!

I WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU GET ALL THE MEDICAL TESTS DONE IN MADRAS ITSELF, SINCE YOU ARE THERE - that will take care of your hypochondriacal fears that there are many things wrong with you.

At least you can be peaceful when the test results come and come negative. Or go for whatever treatment if there turns out to be some problem or the other in you.

Do Give this top priority Arjuna.

Otherwise, have a jolly good time over there - you anyway will without my instructing you too!!!
