Shadow Play...Calcutta

For many of us, Calcutta cannot really be written as "Kolkata" though, of course, that's the way we say it in Bengali....and our memories of the city are of several landmarks and important things....

whose blog I follow regularly, had posted this lovely shadow play video on Facebook:

Even if you are not a Calcutta can watch the creativity of the shadow play!

Does anyone know whose talented hands these are?

Kavya's latest...from her dad...

Kavya seems to be developing a streak of pretty good one-liners over the past month. 4 weeks back was the "I want blood nowwwww!!' ordeal, before Anjana finally got wise and got Kavya the piece of bread she was asking for.

Then over Thanksgiving, after watching the toy parrot in Dad's office do its thing a few times, sitting on its perch repeating back what was spoken to it, she reached out her arms and said, "I wanna hold the turkey". Well, I was quite amused by it anyway.

And now for today's. This morning Anjana cut Kavya's hair after her bath. It's short, but looks pretty cute. Anjana isn't so sure about it, though. The three of us were at the table having dinner, and Anjana and I were discussing it. I was saying I thought it was fine, and that Kavya looked perfectly cute with it. Then I asked Kavya, "does Kavya like her haircut?" Kavya very matter-of-factly said, "um, it's in the trashcan upstairs".

LJ acting up

It's taken me an hour and a half each time, with several tries, to get three entries up today...

I am not able to comment on anyone's dear friends...please know that I am (at least) able to read some of your's very hard for me to "keep quiet", but that's what LJ is forcing me to do! Hope things get back to normal soon....I am off to Kabini and Coorg for 3 days, too, so this looks like a very lean week on LJ!
