In Love With South


My entry in the blog world is more a happy coincidence as I was keen to pen my thoughts that often drifted like clouds in my head. I have been fortunate to make friends from all over the world in this pursuit. Some of them happen to hail from South India with whom I get easily attracted as a North pole of a magnet!  One such blog friend,  Latha who resides at Folsom in USA and pens ‘Found in Folsom’ requested me to write for her. She has a blog full of interesting personal encounters and humor. This post is a dedication to the simple and kind friends who hail from South India and above all my love for their food.
